I was inspired by the trend for Natural dyes and colors when I Designed this Lap Blanket. I wanted to use two Earth tone colors and this is what I came up with. It is very basic since I used The Wonderful Garter Stitch but I added a little detail when you change colors just to spice it up. That being said I have a friend who is knitting it and s...
It’s no secret I LOVE NORO YARN. It was time for me to Design another project and Noro came to mind. I wanted to do a light weight Cardigan for our LA weather and my friend Molly who is not afraid of color tried this design on and it was magic. She looked great and just fell in love with my Design so I decided to name it Molly’s Cardigan.

I wanted to Design a Shawl that had stripes that started very thin and got thicker with a four color stripe repeat. A shawl is so versatile and useful you can always use one more. This is an easy and fun shawl to knit with wonderful result and as I always say It’s a wonderful thing to make something with your hands.

Ponchos are always a great way to spice up a wardrobe and I think this Mini Poncho will do just that. I did the increasing by going up needle sizes rather than using traditional increases which is something I have been wanting to try out for a while. This is a Quick Knit which makes it a Great Gift as well as an addition to your own wardrobe.

I used my very favorite Stitch Pattern which is very easy but has a dramatic result. It is sewn together on the width sides which gi...

Last year I designed The Bold Patch Throw and was asked many times to do a Baby Blanket Version so here it is. My inspiration was the Pennsylvania Dutch Amish Quilts. I love their bold geometric patterns and dynamic color combinations. This blanket starts with a center panel that has three colors worked in a stripe pattern. You than pick up stit...
I wanted to design something with Cascade Magnum for a long time and I figured an Infinity Scarf woud be perfect. I used one of my favority stitches-The Seed Stich and chose a beautiful Cardinal Red Color. I have to say it almost knit itself since it only took 4 hours. This was Fun & Quick just the way I like it.
I love stripes almost as much as I love a quick knit and this top has both. This garment is knit side to side which gives it a wonderful drape when finished but bear in mind it will also have a bit of stretch so when you measure your gauge hold your swatch up rather than laying it flat when you measure. Remember to check your gauge again after y...
Even though I used a stitch pattern on this project it is still very easy to knit up. You just knit two rectangles and sew the shoulder and side wa-lah you have a really cute poncho. I used Noro Cyochin (which is a new yarn for Noro) and like all of the Noro yarns it is a surprise when you’re knitting as the beautify colors present themsel...
