Knitting: Cowl
This cowl is named for the first leaves to unfurl on a plant - it’s for when you’re tired of winter and ready for spring, but It’s still cool enough to want an extra layer on, or for when you want a extra pop of color for your outfit. It’s also for when you are ready to try some colorwork, and you want to start with a project that won’t take to...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Raggi is a worsted weight yarn that is designed for socks - a blend of wool and poly with a reasonable twist that comes in the marked colors of classic old time hiking socks. When I decided it was time to knit up the skeins in my stash, I couldn’t find a pattern that gave me just what I wanted, so I demanded my own.
Knitting: Pet Toys
Once upon a time, I knitted some adorable Christmas trees that use a wine cork as the “trunk” …. and was completely unable to use them as decoration because my cats thought they were great fun to play with. So I created this pattern to give the cats their own wine-cork toys that would stay in one piece, so that I wouldn’t find myself stepping o...
Knitting: Christmas Stocking
Ever wanted to be one of those people who can knit a sock in one evening? Here’s an easy way to do it; you’ll end up with a tiny socklet that is quick, adorable, and uses just a little scrap fingering yarn.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The lifted-stitch pattern used in these mitts makes me think of flowers in an Impressionist painting, so they’re called Giverny after Monet’s gardens.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Construction: toe-up, flap-and-gusset heel, hemmed picot cuff. The Mock Cable pattern is provided in both words and charts.
Knitting: Blanket - Other
There are blankets made to sleep under, blankets to picnic on, and blankets made to cuddle up with someone you love. This is not any of those; this is the blanket you want when you’re sitting on the sofa reading, and your feet get cold. It goes especially well with a favorite book, a cup of tea, and maybe a bowl of popcorn.
Knitting: Scarf
For my last birthday, my mom gave me some yarn including a beautiful single skein of what looks to me like hand-spun silk with beaded thread running along the yarn. I wanted something to make something pretty to show off the yarn, something very open that would let the beads sparkle.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Based on a hat I saw in Gamla Stan, the old part of Stockholm, with a tvåändsstickning (Swedish twined knitting) brim and stranded cap.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
A baby hat with a leaf sprouting on top; a quick and easy knit in a soft and smooth yarn.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This sock features rowing shells (quads) on the instep, followed by a ‘wake’ cable pattern. There are oars along either side of the foot, with hatchet blades extending into the heel gusset. A ripple cable pattern that flows along the back of the leg extending into the heel flap, and there are two more boats on the front of the leg, finishing wi...
