Are you a busy and distracted knitter who wants something fun and interesting but easy to pick up and set down so you can take care of your kids or other responsibilities? My days allow for limited knitting time and focus…yet I am always looking for something exciting to work on. This is why I design all of my patterns…quick, easy to follow and engaging for all levels of knitters! I also love playing with colors and knitting elements that are easily combined to allow for contrasting combinations but also easily blended to suggest a color fade.

Knit this squishy shlanket for the perfect wrap to keep you warm while curled up on the couch or bundled up outside! Biased stripes use simple techniques for a surprisingly quick knit!
