Knitting: Gloves
I have been fascinated by the lovely Scottish tradition of Sanquhar gloves since I first saw a photograph of them. Drawn to their apparent complexity, I was happily surprised at the simple logic of their construction. Due to their fixed layout, these gloves are best knitted in different sizes by changing the needle and yarn size. I could not res...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I love to design with motifs from long ago and to knit in a high gauge for lots of detail. This mitten and hat set was inspired by a sweater from Sunnhordaland, Norway, knitted in the 19th century.

Knitting: Mittens
“A Color Twined Knitting primer,” says Brown-Reinsel. “Using a strand from each end of a center pull ball of yarn (wound of either one or two colors of yarn), creates a fabric that has great warmth, strength, and durability, and elasticity.

Knitting: Gloves
Sanquhar Gloves have captivated the Scottish and non-Scottish alike since the late 1800’s when they were first created. These gloves were favored for riding and driving horses, playing the sport of curling, and looking smart as well! Several classic patterns have survived, most notably the Duke and Prince of Wales patterns.
