With sights like these…



BC Waterfall/Forest

(Kev, Claire, Me, Jeff, Becca)

How could one not want to live in Vancouver British Columbia? I can’t remember seeing so much green in my life. Not to mention all their plastic bags are biodegradable, their transit system is electric (save for a few buses) and they have the best tuna tataki I’ve ever tasted, oh and you know, Whistler. Which is only two of the most beautiful hours you’ve ever spent in a car away. I only went a week, but suddenly Toronto doesn’t feel like home. It’s familiar, sure, but I left my heart on the west coast… and my blackberry. D’oh :(

I hope to post a gallery of the trip soon, once all the photos have been processed by T.

Yarny Wedding Invites

I thought you might like to see the wedding invitations G and I sent out… They are printed on white, so on our white blog background the edges kind of get lost, but you get the idea:


A dear friend designed them for us, and we couldn’t be happier with them. Knitting (my passion)! Rollerblading (G’s passion)! We’re definitely going to get one framed and put it on the wall, I’m so in love with them. I never dreamed I’d had such personal, gorgeous little wedding invites for my low-budget wedding. Speaking of which, it’s coming up REALLY soon! Please forgive my lack of posting in the mean time, I do have lots of knitting goodness to report on, but they are surprises!

Ellen Pompeo Lazy Cable Sweater

Julie and I Ahem, Ellen Pompeo and Katherine Heigel went out for lunch last week. Ellen is wearing a super cute cabled sweater. No idea who it’s by but I love love love lazy gigantic cables.

Ellen Pompeo Lazy Cable Sweater

I have a sweater from our Quiksilver Womens line that has a similar cable.




Since Kevin scooped it up in December I have not gone more than a few days without throwing it on. I’m afraid I’ll wear it out.

Next up is Freida Pinto in grey pullover. I couldn’t find a good view of whatever that embellishment is on her neckline.


Freida Pinto Gathered Bow Sweater

Not sure if it’s a bow or a gathered ruffle? One piece or an add on? What do you think?

Here we have the Duffster, one of my favs, with a cute coffee run ensemble. I dig the tone on tone she’s got here. The scarf is perfectly simple and super cashz.

The edge could be crocheted or knitted and then sewn on after. I like the relaxed gauge that give it that stringy feel.

Katherine Heigel wears a sleeveless cardi with an outfit I’d love to own. Le sigh. It looks great in the first photo, worn open. The second photo shows what it’s like when it’s wrapped closed, and look super cozy.

Annalynne Mccord is wearing a chrocheted scarf and eyebrows that are way too dark. We get it, you aren’t a natural blond.

Not much to say here. Average scarf on an average tween actress.

But Rihanna on the other hand….


Rihanna Skull Knit Dress

Rihanna Skull Knit Dress

First thought-DomiKNITrix. Julie gave me her first book a while back and there was a similar pattern for a mens sweater. Second-skulls are dead to me unless they are on an Alexander McQueen Scarf. Third-Still a nice bit of intarsia/fairisle. Fourth-Rihanna can wear anything.

Last we have Shenae Grimes, who is an actress(cough) on the new 90210 teen slutfest. Clearly, I’m not a fan. Which is why I’m suprised that she had such a kickass cardi. The musical theme is imaginative, fun and totally great against her tousled brown hair.


Shenae Grimes Music Note Cardi

That’s as nice as I can be talking about this girl who butchered one of my favorite childhood shows. Even with Brenda, Kelly and now Donna resurfacing I can’t bring myself to watch any more. It’s too sad.
