Knitting: Booties
These indoor boots will thrill an imaginative child or adult. With these 2 particular yarns held together, the boots quickly felted to a pliant yet sturdy felt. To substitute, choose wool yarns that are not superwash. I combined a bulky wool with a worsted; 3 strands of worsted held together would produce a similar weight. Gauge must be signific...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The yarns that inspired this particular design come from Nova Scotia, where they know a thing or two about cold weather. I combined 3 strands of the lace-weight silk/kid mohair yarn with 1 strand of sock yarn to produce a warm, cushy, and durable fabric (together they equal a worsted weight yarn). Silk and kid mohair are, as my friend and collea...
Knitting: Knee-highs
These very warm socks knit up quickly and are perfect for playing in the snow or hiking across a parking lot with a bag full of good things for dinner. You may choose to knit the knee-highversion or keep going for a thigh-high version, which may be worn pulled up or slouching down. An optional purl design on the top of the foot mirrors the color...

I was admiring his bluebird photos, which are astonishing both for the rarity of bluebirds w...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque, Brimmed Hat, Cloche Hat, Hats - Other
If you wear an Anemone Hat, you will have to get used to being stopped by strangers who are smiling at you and want to tell you how much they like your hat. In the Pacific Northwest, I wear my hats fall through spring, and they inspire ten times as many comments as anything else I have ever designed. An Anemone Hat can provide all these things f...
