Knitting: Knee-highs, Mid-calf Socks

Alternate one solid yarn with one slowly-self-striping yarn in the fingering-to-sport weight range, and make this breathtaking piece to wear.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This summery sock works great with yarns which tend to pool or otherwise disguise stitchwork. Designed with yarns containing lycra/elastane in mind, the yarn requires fewer stitches than standard sock yarn, but it is still fine enough to fit in shoes.
Knitting: Ankle Sock
This fun, fast summer socklet includes a few unusual twists. Use two contrasting yarns to make some color fun! Either use two solid yarns or sub one for a nearly-solid to get a bit of texture.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Since I published my popular Chippy Socks (named so because, like potato chips, you can’t stop at one pair)… I have wanted to make a hat to go with them.
Knitting: Animal Toy
I developed this bear for an event at Schuler Books. The event supported Lansing Comfort Bears, a local effort to put stuffed animals in police cruisers in the event a child is in a traumatic situation.

OK, I can’t guarantee your own speed, but I cast on less than 24 hours before I took this photo… my one day included working in ends and steam-blocking. (My second one took 10 hours.)

Knitting: Legwarmers
These really fit all legs, slender to ultra-curvy! Knit to fit instructions for any size/gauge, -OR- use my suggested gauge for standard S/M/L sizing. Make them shorter to scrunch under jeans – long ones can pull over your knees.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Easy to adjust as you knit, with hints all the way. Start with a small square at the top, increase until you reach the right size. Use my gauge and stitch counts to reach a standard size, or improvise a bit (there are included knit-to-fit instructions)! Stripe it or not.
Knitting: Drawstring Bag
A smaller bag which fits a handmade soap, or a larger gift-sized bag which will hold a small box of gourmet chocolate, deck of cards, or other small item. Knit in organic cotton on large needles to allow maximum stretch, and scrubbability in the case of the soap bag.
Knitting: Ankle Sock, Booties
Check out my pattern for Chipper Color Cap (C3), which is great paired with these socks.
Knitting: Bag - Other, Cozy - Other
Sometimes we need to take a bottle of water along on a jaunt, but no hand is available to hold it. A shoulder-strap version is fine for walking. However, on a bicycle or when pushing a stroller it is better to find a hands-free method with a short strap. This felted bottle bag fits a common half-liter bottle (with hints for larger bottles). Here...
Knitting: Tote, Purse
There are two pattern collections in the ZigBagZ series, the Maxi Collection and Mini Collection. Maxi includes:

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap, Throw
Sometimes we want to hug someone who is not nearby. When we can not offer love in person, it helps to make and send a soft, special gift. I made this one for my friend Kristi.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
If you need a shawl that does not fall off your shoulders, this design in three variations stays put because it is shaped like a rainbow. There is even a Goddess-sized version for up to size 5X.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I knit several prototypes of this hat, and my musician husband kept commenting on how much the pattern looked like guitar trim. (The trim is called herringbone.) I happily gave in to his suggestion. These hats finish quickly with well-planned colorwork. There are merely 6 rows that use two colors on the same row! (Knit edge-to-top.)

With sixteen full-color photographs to walk you through the new techniques, you will be on your way in no time.
Knitting: Tote, Purse, Bag - Other
This bag is so much fun, with so much color! Knit with only three balls of Noro Kureyon or other slowly-self-striping yarn. Sample bags each use three different colorways in one purse, with a few uniting colors in all balls. Solid-colored features (bottom of bag and I-cord handles) are knit of a coordinating solid feltable yarn.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These are so versatile! Knit in lightweight yarn for indoor use or late spring/early fall outerwear. Try bulky alpaca for the dead of winter. Wear them over windproof gloves when you need more than just your normal winter gear. Two designs in one pattern: one ribbed in the round on DPNs, one knit flat, no purls. Photos, walk throughs.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks

This cushy rug can be knit with one strand of super-bulky yarn or three strands of heavy worsted, to make the colorway of your dreams. It knits very fast at 2.5 stitches/inch.

If you are like me, and you like color—but not charts which require checking every few stitches—this pattern is for you. The stitch patterns repeat every 4 stitches, so you can work without consulting the chart constantly. Only two colors per row.
