Into the Wild: one of my favorite things is to see all the wonderful gear knitting folks wear to go play in the chill.

On the left: from a trip to Cordova, Alaska, this summer – on the Copper River by Child’s Glacier. Abigail and her adorable daughter Lillian joined all the activities throughout the week at the Fiber & Friends Retreat and delighted everybody with their smiles! This time, we were all hiking in our knitwear – it’s a little chilly out there on the glacier but we’re cozy!

(Before the retreat, we had a KAL for the He Said She Said Cap – you can see my KAL Cap here…)

On the right: from the Yarniacs Podcast group on Ravlery, here’s Celeste’s hubby while they were out hiking in the aspens in Flagstaff, AZ.

Chic Knits Brynna


One of my very favorite things to do since I moved to the Rose City is to explore all of its open markets.

There’s the one down by the river on Saturdays – a big ole flashback of the funnest sort – where I had no trouble getting my hippy on.

Next, I found the Farmer’s Market down by PSU, and after I fortified myself with what might’ve been the most delicious piece of coconut cream pie (Lauretta Jean’s) ever, I wandered the many stalls and loaded up my canvas bag full of all sorts off-the-bush-vine-oven goodies…

On a recent sunny Sunday, while looking for a new place to live, I wandered into the Montavilla Farmer’s Market, slightly NE of my precious Mt. Tabor.

Every week, the weather gets warmer and warmer here and I’ve been gravitating out of jeans and into dresses. Even when it’s cooler here, you see skirts and dresses with dancer’s leggings, flats or short boots.

Sort of like this:

And even when it’s warmer, there is still the drifty temps under the trees or when the sun disappears as the clouds drift and sway.

That’s how BRYNNA came to be — I craved a little bit of layering — just the right amount of HUG to keep it all cozy…(for those times when you just might drift into Bipartisan Cafe and get some of the most ridiculously delicious strawberry-rhubarb pie a la mode you’ve ever tasted…brrr)
