Hello Charm City!

I live in BALTIMORE now! In a small, cheap, cold apartment, the ceiling of which is higher than any of the rooms are wide. It's like a little cube where I work all day at a cluttered table, our only real piece of furniture! Hooray! The rest of my life will arrive when I have a HOUSE!

I've been working far more than full time as a copyeditor and project manager for the past few months, while packing and storing and moving, but I've found a few minutes to knit, including this new pullover design for Our Back 40:


I wanted to do something very simple but not boring. Something natural that I would actually wear.


I would wear this all the time. For now, you can get the pattern as part of a kit from Our Back 40. If you can afford it, this yarn is magic. Go for it. The company's values and mission are aligned with my own, so it was an honor to work with them. However, if this is outside your budget, I'll be publishing the pattern separately (I'm not sure how soon, but stay tuned).

If there's anyone still reading, thanks for your patience. I'm back! And I'll be a vendor at Stitches West in a few weeks. I hope to see some of you there and get my knitting energy back after a few really draining months.

Absolutely beautiful. And congrats on the new apartment. Just remember that "cozy" places are way easier to clean....

Yay, welcome back! I've been wondering how things were going for you. That sweater is lovely and anything but boring.
