Isette

Islette is a cropped cardigan that maybe worn 3 ways- fully closed and buttoned behind the neck, buttoned with the single button in front and left drapey, or unbuttoned with the fronts allowed to flow open. The body is worked from the bottom up and the sleeves are knit by picking up and working short row sleeve caps and are then knit down in the round. The simple construction and lace panels make for a fun and easy knit. Shepard Sport from Lorna’s Laces allows for the perfect drape and texture.

Figuring out what is appropriate to blog about…

I had a major change in my life last September and have since then caught myself debating whether or not to blog about it? This is a non-knitting personal post, so if you read my blog for my knitting updates you may want to skip this one….

I suddenly felt like I was keeping a secret rather than keeping my personal life to myself, so I have decided to do a quick post. Also, I have found that I still have not told some friends, the ones that I don’t see or talk to frequently enough, and was feeling bad that I had not told them (sorry loves, I hope you read this). My husband Ethan and I separated in September. It was truly the best thing for us to do and we remain and I believe always will be truly great friends and family to each other. We are both doing well and I think have heard our fill of very well meaning, sympathetic words.

Ethan and I were married 3 years ago (but had been together for 13!!!) and I in no way wish to take back any of the time we spent together. Still, it was a big change. The strangest part for me was finding a new routine, I did not expect this. It was daunting and exciting to find a new rhythm to my daily life, but I now feel that I am there. That is why I was not as prolific with my designing and blog posting this winter, I got caught up in my social life. And dating again, which after 13 years was much more fun than I remembered!

I hope that you all too are doing well and getting excited about the slowly approaching Spring.

xoxo
