Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This one is the first in the series of hats I’m working on for Spunky Eclectic’s yarns Winter 2014 series. This yarn works up so fast in the bulky yarn. It is really lovely and warm. I’m quite enamored with it.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Qanik is one of the Inuit words for snow. If I’ve done my research right, it means “Snow in the air.” With the pile of snowballs around the main body of the hat and the snowflakes falling at the top, it seemed to be the perfect name for this design. I love colorwork -- not just as a design feature, but also for the way it makes a super war...
Knitting: Scarf
I keep spinning progressions and don’t always have the right thing to knit them into. I wanted something that wasn’t plain but not too busy either so I devised this scarf to do just that. I made it this spring and I’m really looking forward to wearing it a ton this winter.
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This is a ridiculously simple shawl. You can use this as a basis for making any weight though I devised specifically for this yarn. It’s simple. No nonsense. Just start knitting and within a weekend you’ll have a crazy squishy lovely shawl. With yarn like Caterpillar II you don’t need anything elaborate. The yarn does all the w...
Knitting: Cowl
I wanted a squishy, huggable, lovable cowl. One that would snuggle right up to my neck and face. One that I would never want to take off. Corinthian is that cowl. It’s not just the pattern though, this yarn is something special. Targhee is an American breed of sheep and its fiber is so squishy and sproingy that everything knit with it is m...
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl
Sometimes I want a cowl that’s long enough to wrap around a few times. That way, when it’s hot, I can let it hang loosely with no wraps and have a cute scarf accessory. When it’s really cold, I can wrap it around a few times to have extra layers near my face. This versatile cowl can be worn either way. It’s knit sideways ...
Knitting: Cowl
I’ve always loved this little clover design. When my girls were wee, I used this clover design on all of their socks. I haven’t used it in a while, but it immediately popped into my head when I began to design this series of cowls. I have updated my original use of it with a terraced or stepped movement around the cowl. Paired with S...
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This is a great pattern knit from side to side. Much like a few other patterns out there, you will use 2 skeins of yarn (or one skein that you measured out in halves) and increase your shawl using one skein and then decrease using the second one.
Knitting: Cowl
I’ve always loved this lace pattern. In my Gram’s old pattern books it’s called a scroll pattern. To me it looks like my pile of bobbins in their storage basket. In this yarn it’s a lighter cowl that feelS luxurious thanks to the bamboo in it. It’s warm enough to take off the chill but pretty to wear just because.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
When I created the Rumpus shawl and released it as a group project in the Spunky Eclectic Ravelry group, I had no idea how much fun it would be. I made several Rumpus shawls and am now on my way to making more using this sideways patterning.
Knitting: Cowl
Do you feel lucky? The name of this came from the horseshoe lace design and their folklore of bringing luck. I know growing up on a farm, we always had a horseshoe over all the exits. All that pass, may they have luck.

Knitting: Poncho
Sands that shift and change in time. Stripes that ebb and flow with the wind. One day straight symmetrical stripes and the next will be jagged edges as if the wind couldn’t decide how it wanted to display the sands. There are 2 shoulder warmers for the shifting sands - one for the orderly winds, and one with a little more playful edging
Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This is a shawl with an incredible wingspan. 8 feet to be exact. It’s only 14 inches at the center point, this is just enough to give the back of your neck more warmth but not to be too bulky.
Knitting: Cardigan
Once upon a time, I received a message from my friend David asking if 1100 yards in Worsted weight was enough to make myself a sweater. I replied “Yes…” A couple of weeks later this gorgeous red tweed handspun showed up on my doorstep. I was immediately giddy and cast on. I wanted the sweater to be available for everyone. So while it’s cle...

Yarn was spun and the project test knit by Sherie McManaman of Whimsey Knits..
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is more than a pattern. It’s a recipe to help you create so many shawls and get the results you want. It’s 18 pages long, chock full of charts, written directions, and pictures of each of the pattern sections. The last page is a piece of graph paper that you can use to help put together your work if you like to put it all togeth...

Fiber Used: Mittens: “Adelaide” on Polwarth by Southern Cross Fibres
Knitting: Pullover
It received the name “8 ounces” because the idea was to use 4-8 ounces of handspun or “special yarn” with the Highland Chunky. You can see the Orange version was done in all Highland Chunky but there is information on how to do it with handspun as well.
Knitting: Beret, Tam
The pattern uses super chunky thick and thin handspun but commercial super bulky yarns can be a good substitute.

Knitting: Cardigan
I have had so many requests over the years to put this sweater pattern back out. It had disappeared when we closed down a website. Through the magic of web archive, I regained the pattern. I used it again and found it really needed some polishing. This was whipped up and thrown out there but is no where near the professional patterns I like to p...

Thanks to Kyira(forgot her Rav name) I was able to get a PDF that she had of this pattern and put it up fast.
Knitting: Mittens
Available as a kit on the website. This pattern uses smaller thrumms placed more frequently. This distributes the inside wool more evenly and quickly reducing the chance of lumps.
Knitting: Sleeveless Top

The bright one is Small and the blue grey is the large size.

Amy says you can really use any weight of yarn for this fun shawl.
