Knitting: Cardigan, Coat / Jacket
This cardigan fits a wide range of sizes and body types. The waist is adjustable and the striping effect (provided by the ribbing) fitted cross-wise on the torso gives the illusion of a (smaller) waist. This is a great pattern for plus size women as well.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
One rainy day here in Northern California the kids and I were in the van going to scouts. The kids were tracing raindrops on the windows. This gave me the idea to make this shawl. Designing perfectly round circles in knitting proved to be a bit more difficult than I had at first imagined.
