hey there! just discovered your blog and i wanted to say 'hello'. i'm looking forward to reading more.


I hear you on knitting for the season. I did that with another summer knit a few years ago, ergo, the Sirdar Tango tank and then my gauge totally changed. Now I try to finish it, if I'm nearing completion before the season ends, even if I won't wear until the next season. But if it's got aways to go, then definitely best to pack it up for the next spring/summer season.

Mr.K's sweater will be fierce! Can't wait to see that working up. What other fall/winter UFOs do you have lurking from seasons past? Inquiring minds and all . . .


I absolutely love that seeded rib check. I'm gonna have to look that up for use later 'cause it'd be a great contrast panel for something in stockinette. I totally knit for the season too, but this year I've been trying to knit earlier than the season so I can wear the stuff for the season during the season, but I found it hard to work with wool during the summer (still did it, but I wasn't entirely thrilled with the idea).

dear ms. briscoe,
you are a busy woman!! thanks for the pictures from Kevin Powell's Katrina event. I almost thought that was garbage, but I'm glad it was other materials. I'm also excited about Knit Out 2005 NYC. Although I will not be in attendance, my "crew" will be there representin'!! They are called YARN4MORE. But I will definetely be in NYC in November. You are truly an inspiration of possibilities....thank you!

peace and blessings,


look at you all on the diy site. you go, girl.

my new mantra is "create, don't just accumulate." word.


Your one busy lady! Mr.K is going to be one happy man when you finish his sweater. Love the swatches that you knitted up too!


Congrats on the DIY profile. That's very exciting news. Glad to see you back after such a long break.

I love the color of the hoodie and can't wait to see it knit up.



Mamselle Sahara, just reading your blog gives me whiplash. And I think of myself as a busy person.

If hoodies are gonna be in, I'm going to snoop out a good pattern. I'd like to try making one.

Looking forward to a Fashion Week post, when you've had some time to yourself.


Me again, just wanted to respond to your post on my blog about the "jewelry"...

They call them moose nugget necklaces, or earrings, and since the tourist stores are usually full of replicas or commemorative objects about the gold rush era there's lots of gold nuggets nearby so I don't think people quite make the full connection that the moose nuggets weren't "mined" in the same sense as the gold ones.
