Another Mother’s Day is upon us! Mothers are those who have nurtured, loved and had a part in a childs’ life, whether they gave birth to them or not. Mothers endure, sacrifice, give and love unconditionally. I’ve designed this mystery knit with three clues. Every ten days through the month, you will receive the next clue so that your finished o...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Mothers generously give. It’s their nature. Our mother gives in so many ways, but this year, she gave the gift of our sister’s trip of a lifetime to England and Scotland for the Country House Retreat and Edinburgh Yarn Festival. As many of you know, our oldest sister, Wendy (who is in heaven) inspires all of our designs and is represented by th...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This asymmetric, triangular wrap was inspired by my big question, “What do I get my sister for Christmas?” I decided to design her a wrap that is a beautiful spin-off of the Because I Love You Wrap. Both patterns recommend two, highly contrasting yarns so the details are highlighted nicely. This pattern has the option to knit it in fingering/so...
Knitting: Brimmed Hat
When a good friend asks for a hat pattern to match the Maze Amaze socks, I oblige! As easy as the socks, this fun hat is knit it the round using 2 colors of DK weight yarn (or you may choose to hold 2 fingering weight yarns together for the contrast color using 10 gm of each). If you can knit, purl and slip stitches, you can knit this hat! It’s...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
My husband’s words still haunt me, “We need to take down these pines before they fall on the house.” So when I was designing these socks that were unnamed at the time, a huge pine tree fell on the corner of our house. No one was hurt and there was minimal damage but I KNEW these needed to be named Tilting Pines! This is an easy to read and memo...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
It’s pretty amazing when a pattern AMAZES the designer! That’s exactly what happened when designing this pair of fun, top-down sock pattern.

This pattern recommends Norah George Yarns in her three color pack (50 gm ...

This is a knit for someone wh...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Dolphins have always amazed me. They are high spirited, graceful, fun and communicate using “clicks”. Imagine only being able to use clicks in various tones and sequences to communicate? This easy to memorize sock pattern reminded me of dolphin clicks and uses three colors (although 2 or one color may be used)! If you use three colors, of the 1...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This is a beautifully geometric sock pattern that is therapeutic, easy to read and memorize. A slightly speckled/variegated or solid/tonal colorway would show off these rectangles well. I chose a colorway that reminded me of the Caribbean sea and when paired with a neon pop, made it magical! The color combinations are endless, but in the end, t...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I’ve never been a fan of whiney people, let alone ghosts, but Moaning Myrtle tickles me. She is a ghost that resides in one of the Hogwart’s bathrooms in the Harry Potter movies. Myrtle’s emotions and personality characteristics are as colorful as any knitters’ stash! This beautifully simple ribbing repeat is easy to memorize. If you can knit a...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Moaning Myrtle needs another pair of socks to fit her neurotic personality! These are cute shortie socks with an option of TWO patterns in one! You may choose to knit a pair in one pattern, another pair in the other, or knit one sock from each pattern! The purl motif in both patterns gives this sock a little more ease, so I opted to move down a...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
That whiney Moaning Myrtle is at it again! As you know, she is the “lovable” ghost that resides in the bathroom at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movies. She MUST have a pair of socks for each mood, and these are her paranoid pair. There are two patterns within this pattern, so if you choose, you can make two separate matching pairs of socks, or ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
We loved dyeing eggs in our house growing up. The alien-like features from the dye that was left on the whites of the hard-boiled eggs amazed me and I felt ashamed eating such interesting pieces of artwork!! The motif of this sock is of an egg and when using variegated yarn, reminded me of speckled dragon eggs. The pattern is written using 9 in...

Salacia was the wife of Neptune in Roman mythology. Behind every great “god”, there is an even greater “goddess”!

Left overs from socks or other garments/projects fill our stash space. Unless you use these left overs for blankets or as a supplement in other projects, they seem to have no purpose. What a shame! Free the Minis Wrap is just the pattern you need to use those left overs to make a beautiful asymmetric triangular wrap! You will also need approx. ...

Knitting: Cowl
Chunky, warm cowls are the perfect accessory for chilly, winter days. They remind me of the fuzzy scarves worn outside on chilly PA days on Christmas break when my sisters and I would make snowmen, skate on the frozen pond, or when we’d take our half naked Barbies out for a “surf” in the snow drifts. When wrapped twice around the neck, this cow...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This pattern reminds me of our evenings during vacation at the beach when my sisters and I would feed the seagulls. They would fly close to the surf, circling and diving down to us, stealing a French fry and yes, even pooping on our heads! The flying seagull sock pattern is for the knitter who has made socks in the past or has some basic knowle...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I frequently say, “Oy Vey” (meaning, “my goodness”) and what parent doesn’t? I heard that Jewish term frequently growing up from my mother and even though my father did not say it, I know he THOUGHT it!! My mom’s best friend was Jewish and she heard this saying a lot at her house. My parents were a little crazy to have three little girls, in th...

As in the Because I Love You Wrap, this cowl was inspired by my late sister Wendy who was always doing special things for people she loved. Why? Just BECAUSE!

Knitting: Cowl
This is a cozy cowl, perfect for a cool evening or nippy morning. It was inspired by my late sister Wendy who loved growing things and tending to flowers. Her favorite flowers were Gerbera daisies and African violets. She nurtured her plants as she did her husband and children… with patience, persistence and tender loving care! As you quickly k...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This pattern was inspired by the mere fact that sometimes there are people in our lives who are so cherished that we need to gift them a hand knit “just because”. No special occasion is needed for giving a hand made gift to those we love, just being blessed by their friendship and love in return makes them deserving enough. I would get gifts at...
