An ever so brief introduction to the blog. This personal blog space has been around in one form or another since 2010. It focuses on making, creativity, and clothing. Thank you for being here with me. - xo, Holly


Halloween costume, book edits, and a new sweater

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Who Wears Who Halloween 2017 Everyday Goth 7

Fall has arrived, and I cast on for a new sweater! I got a sweater knitting itch a couple nights ago, pulled out a bag of Classic Elite’s Inca Alpaca and cast on for Bristol Ivy’s Fairchild sweater pattern.

This might be a bit of a knitting adventure, since my stitch gauge is spot on, but my row gauge is pretty far off. Or it might turn out perfectly, since I like my sweaters on the longer side anyway. Either way, I’m loving having a relaxed knitting project on the needles. It’s making a really nice break between doing the final proof of the third Shawl Geometry book.

Yesterday was Halloween, and over on Who Wears Who I pulled together a last minute low-key Halloween look, find out more about the look here.

WhoWearsWho Fall 10x10 Wrap Up

PUMPKINS! This means it officially feels like fall now. Which is probably good because we’re almost at the end of October, and fall had to come around at some point or another.

I wrapped up my Fall 10×10 Wardrobe Challenge over on Who Wears Who last week (which is another reason I’m glad fall has finally landed in NYC). The 10×10 wardrobe challenge is a low pressure capsule wardrobe challenge, and I had a ton of fun participating again this season. There’s a wrap up/review here on Who Wears Who, including my favorite and least favorite looks plus links to all the looks throughout the challenge.

Still plugging away on Shawl Geometry Three (editing is pretty boring to talk about).


editing, reading, writing – thankfully not all on the same topic

Editing, reading, and writing – this is all that it feels like my week has consisted of. Thankfully it hasn’t all been on the same topic, or I think my brain might have gotten totally fried.

I’m editing Shawl Geometry Book Three, and now letting it rest before diving into the next (I hesitate to say final, but quite possibly final) round of edits.

Reading and rereading a pile of new, and old books.

Writing daily outfit posts over on Who Wears Who. Today is Day 8 of my Fall 10×10 Wardrobe Challenge, and I’ve been daily-blogging the whole challenge, so lots of writing about clothing, and looks, and outfits each day. If you haven’t been following the challenge, come catch up here.
