Tiny cables 😍. #catenarysport

First one done! #heratimittens #PPQ22

I'm very excited to release my latest knitting pattern, Catenary Sport. It's a lightweight version of #catenary knit in #briggsandlittle Sport. The pattern is 25% off until 12pm EST on October 15th and if you previously purchased Catenary, it's 50% off anytime.

A long weekend with a new book and a new knitting project is a great one. #heratimittens

Continuing my top shelf with my makeup collection. @glossier took over my routine in the few short months that it's been available in πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦. I start with their Skin Tint, then I put on my very favorite @lisewatier 24 Glam Mascara. It's a fiber mascara that doesn't move. I normally cannot apply mascara without getting it all over my eyelid, so I have to go in with a q-tip afterwards to clean up. Hopefully I am not the only one with this problem πŸ€”. I line my πŸ‘€ with @marcbeauty Fineliner ultra-skinny gel liner in Truffle or Code Blue, depending on the day, and groom my brows with Glossier Boy Brow.
Then I go in with Glossier Stretch Concealer, Cloud Paint in Beam and Puff, Wowder to set, NARS blush in Madly for contouring and Glossier High Beam for the glow.
All to look like I'm not wearing makeup, at all. πŸ˜‚

Just because.

Jim's 5th(!) collection of poetry was released this week and I am so proud of him. ❀️

I've rewritten the #diodehat pattern for clarity and included some new techniques to improve the knitting process. To celebrate, the Diode pattern is 25% off on #Ravelry until 12am EST on October 1st, no coupon code required. Link in profile. See Instagram stories for images of some of my favorite Diodes!

Here's a glimpse into my skin care routine.
I have rosacea so I am very careful about the products I use. A few rules I stick by: all products must be fragrance free, (fragrances can be extremely irritating to the skin) and I never buy any skin care items packaged in a jar. Some products I use are:

Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser - Recommended by my dermatologist. It's non-irritating and takes off makeup.
@drunkelephant C-Firma is my holy grail product. I also love their B-Hydra and Lala Retro cream. I apply it in the morning right after cleansing.
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30. Rosacea reacts to the sun so SPF is a must. This one is my favorite, and SPF prevents aging. AM only.

CeraVe Eye Repair Cream. Stable packaging and affordable! I put this on in the AM and PM.
@deciem The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil (PM) and Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA (AM + PM). A great Toronto based company with affordable products. I can't wait to try more!
@paulaschoice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treating Mask. It's so soothing! I use this once a week, overnight.
And finally, I also use a prescription rosacea treatment cream.

Found the vintage shearling jacket of my dreams yesterday. πŸ‘

Parking lot hydrangeas on our way home from the cottage. September long weekend always marks the unofficial end of summer in πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦. Another good summer in the books full of ice cream cones, lake swimming and time with my nieces and nephews.

This @littlecottonrabbits bear was sitting dismembered for a few months waiting for me to pick up embroidery thread. I'm glad I finally finished it, this bear is very cute! I stuffed the body with catnip and my 🐱 🐱are mildly interested in it. Yarn is @tanisfiberarts DK in Lemongrass.
