Silver Storm is a very special cowl. Made with the Feel Good Yarn Company’s Silver Spun Sock, in collaboration with their Year of the Designer series, composed of 5% silver and a combination of cotton with a small amount of Spandex and nylon, it is cotton that doesn’t stretch out.

The Sky you Love is a pattern designed so that you can knit your very own sky. I love looking at the sky, especially sunsets over water, which is the sky that I picked for my design, using Sonne and Türkis in Wollmeise Pure. This can be purchased in the USA at The Loopy Ewe, purchased and delivered in a week from Wollmeise in Germany, or you can...

Wouldn’t it be fun to grow up drawing on walls and painting windows? Well, I’m telling you now: go ahead and paint the windows! Using a very simple technique (just knit the two yarns together - it’s not intarsia) you get to paint twelve differently shaped windows as brightly as you like or with your favorite colors. The entire ...

Knitting: Scarf
I have loved Prince since the 1980s and was so sad to learn that he died suddenly. This shawlette has stitches that each commemorate a song by The Artist. I get that this is MAJORLY dorky, but when I was between designs, Michelle from Bo Peep Fine Yarns messaged me suggesting a Prince commemoration. So, when you’re a knitter, you knit, and...
Knitting: Scarf
Manny is a sideways garter stitch chevron scarf that is done in 3 colors of Koigu on a US 3/3.25mm. There no ends to weave in (not one!). Yarn is cut after every row to make the fringe. Hints for memorizing repeat are given, making this a good Netflix project. If you would like to discuss color or yarn options, please feel free to do this in the...

The Kitty Invisibility Cloak is a tribute to Mrs. Norris (a cat in Harry Potter) who can sense the kids even when they wear the invisibility cloak. You can see little paw prints (or flowers, really) on the lace portion of the shawl and underneath, who knows what lurks? Knit your own KIC and disappear into it anytime you like. POOF.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Isabelita was inspired by my “idea” of Spanish flair and panache. Of course, my kid’s secret third middle name is Placido (after Domingo.) It is a crescent shaped shawl with slipped and textured stitches, similar to the ones in Quindici. They are really “sister shawls” (Isabelita is the sassy one) and you can easily...

Crochet: Baby Blanket
Waterspray is a unisex baby blanket, crocheted out of a very soft baby alpaca. So soft that my 6 year old tough guy has been wrapping it around himself while watching Sponge Bob! I used scrap fingering yarn to do the trim since I wanted to try a few different colors. It takes about 80-100 yards of fingering yarn for the trim.
Crochet: Baby Blanket
This is a baby blanket done in US single crochet. Double crochet to y’all elsewhere.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is a simple shawl pattern that renders and elegant shawl with beautiful drape. It’s designed, like many of my patterns, for “process” knitting while doing other things like watching Amish Mafia or Moonshiners.
Knitting: Dress
Knitting: Cowl
Speedy is a reversible cowl that looks like a racetrack. It’s my way of making something positive out of those days where one has to be speedy to juggle fifty things at a time. While we long for a cup of tea and a bath, Speedy can be something pleasing if one knits it (slowly, of course) rather than lives it.

If you like the play of color then you will love this project which is done using Colorshift Yarns. It looks wonderful done in a Colorbridge or an ombre (explained below.) There are pinks, mocha, gray, purples - every color you can imagine from which to choose - colors for both men and women, which make unique holiday gifts. Forget the rooster t...

This is a top down, swingy cardigan, designed to fit people of all body shapes and sizes. Once you get going, it’s very easy and good in front of a television or during interventions, like when your 5 year old is putting Daddy’s underwear in the freezer (this happened over Thanksgiving, I swear.)

Hi there Knitters,
Knitting: Cowl
No, I make no promises that this will reverse those annoying habits of Husbands, and unfortunately, this doesn’t involve the torching of a remote control. It’s named after those large, snuggly cushions with arms. In college, we called them Husbands and I just assumed that was their common name. My little girl has one and I’m al...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This was designed for a quick witted family friend of ours in Dublin, Ireland, Dr. Blackburn. She has seen Husband’s family through births, deaths, illness, recovery, marriages - you name it. Now it’s her turn to sit back and have a bit of comfort around her shoulders.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS CROCHETED!
Knitting: Cape
I designed this with the idea that I wanted to knit a bit of lace, have an end product that was pretty, but be able to successfully rescue my project when Junior was busy wrapping bacon around the cat (or his sister.) Too much lace and it would be a loss the first time I had to throw it down in the midst of child chaos. Too boring and it’d...
