Knitting: Cowl
The mobius loop is a handy shape that creates the best fitting cowl! Because of its half-twist and substantial depth, the Mindful Mobius makes a good fit over the shoulders, or can be pulled up over the ears as a hood , or worn draped forward as a standard long-loop cowl.

As a child, pomegranates were an exotic treat. Pomegranate season falls in the winter in Canada (we now have nearly year round availability), but were still very rare to find in the supermarket in the 80’s, so it was really exciting to get one. Pomegranates were an “outside fruit” in our house (that red juice stains everything), so these snack s...
Knitting: Tutorial
Illusion Knitting is so mysterious! Using strategically placed knit and purl stitches and two contrast colors, the fabric appears as garter stitch stripes when viewed from above and reveals an image when viewed at an angle. When the principals of the technique are understood, illusions are easy to work (and create!) for the most amateur knitter.

Knitting: Cowl
Have you ever had a skein of very “busy” hand dyed or handspun yarn that wouldn’t be tamed? This design started with a gorgeous skein of hand dyed wool was re-knitted many times. It obscured any stitch pattern and the colors pooled in a strange way. It just couldn’t decide what it wanted to be! Lion Tamer Cowl was finally the answer!

Knitting: Tee
A walk in the woods is a cool reprieve from the heat of the summer sun. In its cool caverns plant life bursts forth, reaching for the dappling sun. I tiptoe through the Lady slippers, Trilliums, and Black-Eyed Susans as they nod their heads in silent greeting.
Knitting: Beret, Tam

Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
Creeping tendrils of purple vetch knotted among the tall grass are a welcome snack for passing cows and little girls put out to pasture for the day. As a young girl, my sister and I would suckle at these lovely purple flowers to take in the hint of sweet nectar the last bumble bee had missed. We marveled at how this seemingly delicate plant coul...

Knitting: Cowl
The No Rules Cowl is for experimentation! I am normally a real stickler for gauge, but I find knitting a cowl is always a bit more spontaneous. If my stitch choice ends up making the cowl a bit looser than expected, it is the best opportunity to wear a lovely vintage broach (always better a cowl be a bit too loose than too tight!) If you are usi...

Art Deco artist and wealthy bohemian Tamara de Lempicka represented the height of glamour in Jazz Age Paris.

The Never-Ending Cowl is truly NEVER ENDING as there are no seams or discernible cast-on edge. In fact, this pattern is so simple, it is really more of a knitting exercise in perfecting the provisional cast-on and grafting ( also called kitchener stitch).
