I recently got a few orders for my kitchen squares, and just made a big batch in a bunch of bright colors. 100% cotton. Absorbent and perfect for scrubbing, wiping, dusting, soaking up spills, and burping baby. Available for purchase here.

I finally got around to making another knit t-shirt. This was my first attempt with the same yarn in a different color — Coats & Clark Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread — almost two years ago now. My grandmother used to use Aunt Lydia’s, and it knits up beautifully.

The colors are a little distorted, but you get the idea. The design is inspired by 80s-style cotton tops and the interest in learning a new stitch. Here’s the front view:

I swore at the end of the school year that I’d take some time this summer to make some fabulous knitted pieces for my new job as a professor. I’ve spent the last three weeks experimenting with different knitted patterns in lightweight cotton yarn. After ripping out and starting over this project five times, I’m abandoning it. But I figured it was worth a blog post. It’s a tremendous amount of work, but I’m not in love with the pattern, and you can see on the left side of the photo that I made a mistake, and there’s a bit of an appendage jutting out more than it should. That being said, I walk away from the project with tons of ideas for lightweight cotton tops. Hopefully my next post will reveal what I come up with…

These were an experiment in decorative knitwear as stockings or spats of some kind. Crocheted in 100% cotton thread. I made them a while ago now, but they never made it over to the new blog.

Tall spats with stirrup. Jade.

My hair stylist, Boswell (who works at Fox & Boy in Nolita), was given a set of knitted, cotton washcloths earlier this year. He uses them as scrubbies in the kitchen, and suggested I try making some. After toying with patterns for a while, I finally made a set. They’re a perfect gift for any occasion!

These are crocheted in 100% cotton. Kelly green and chartreuse.
