Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Most people tend to knit self-striping yarns in stockinette patterns. While on one hand this makes complete sense to me (after all, with self-striping yarns, the colorway is doing all of the work; why mess that up with a complicated pattern?), on the other hand over the last few years I’ve come to find stockinette just this side of tedious.

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
One of my favorite sock patterns to knit is a simple feather and fan pattern. It’s easy to memorize, knits up fast, and looks good in both solid and multi-colored yarns.

Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth
This pattern is designed to be knit at a slightly tighter gauge than the yarn calls for. This will make a nice, thick, bouncy fabric!

Knitting: Scarf

Knitting: Scarf
Some good friends of mine have two darling twin daughters, who like to dress in a similar fashion but not necessarily the same. Thus I wanted to design two scarves that were similar, but not exactly mirror images of each other.
