This collection is what happens when I fall in love with a stitch pattern. This unusual cable just would not leave my brain alone….and I never got tired of knitting it. Once I’d explored all the possibilities for the full size version, I adapted it to use for smaller garments. I can face it–-I went a little nuts!

I love Shakespeare comedies. Even though they are predictable, and (in the current liberated climate) dreadfully un-PC, there is just something universally appealing about the Bard’s sense of humor. Throw in a few cross-dressing women, add some gender-bending repartee and sneak in a practical joke or two and you just can’t go wrong.

When designing Rime’s the Reason for Knitty I fell in love

Knitting: Tote
The Tangier Tote uses stitch patterns inspired by middle eastern motifs and is ideal for those making their first foray into Fair Isle. In fact, I created the pattern to use in my class “Don’t Be Stranded” where I teach my preferred two-handed Fair Isle method with woven floats.

Knitting: Throw
This design is about choices and was inspired by Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken”. The first line of the poem “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood…” is graphically depicted both in the textured stitch pattern (created with just knits and purls) and in the yarn color of the sample.

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These gorgeous socks feature an unusual butterfly look cable that caught my imagination for several months (see my Rime’s the Reason collection).

Appearances can be deceiving. Take a second look. This is not your typical half-circle shawl.

While working on the technical editing for the Rime’s the Reason jacket (see Knitty, Winter 2012) I decided to change the construction of the hood to make it a bit easier to knit.
Knitting: Pullover
As I was completing the Rime’s the Reason jacket design (See Knitty, Winter 2012), I realized I had all the components present for a men’s pullover—interesting construction; a striking, gender-neutral stitch pattern; and perhaps most importantly I was still in the creative zone and had not yet forgotten the calculations and general stitch-witche...

Knitting: Market bag (slouchy)
Market bags are an excellent project for a newer knitter to cut their teeth on when they’re ready to begin knitting in the round. They’re relatively quick to make, incredibly useful and make wonderful gifts.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Well Spotted is an ideal pattern to highlight hand painted yarns. The vast majority of this sock is worked in very simple stockinette stitch. The spots are created by knitting into a stitch 5 rounds below and unraveling the stitches above it. The socks are suitable for men, women and children and come in five sizes.

No, moths haven’t infested these socks—but the lace pattern might make you look twice.

Gingko trees have some seriously cool looking leaves. They are shaped like fans with a crenelated lower edge which is divided by a vertical slit (biloba literally means 2 lobes). They are green most of the year but in the fall they turn an amazing yellow. If you are fortunate enough to stumble upon a gingko tree on a breezy day you’ll find the s...

My grandmother is a class act: beautiful, resourceful, practical, glamorous, and resilient. As a war bride, she followed her new husband across the country and then worked in a factory making B-29 wheels while he served in the Pacific theater. As a young mother, she worked hard to support her family in an era where that “simply was not done”. As...

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Shortly after the publication of my Kink neckwarmer in Knitty (First Fall 2010), I went on a sock-yarn, mini-shawl spree. Sock yarn is so pretty, decadent and efficient (a single 100g skein is usually enough for a nice little shawl). Unfortunately, on more than one occasion I ran out of yarn before the shawl was done. After yet another desperate...
Knitting: Messenger Bag, Bag - Other
This design was the product of youth, stupidity, an embarrassing crash and a damaged sweater. I’m a young(ish) woman with POTS who must use a wheelchair outside my home. When the wheelchair became a part of my life, I entered my second toddlerhood. My motto is “I’ll do it myself.”—Well, at least until I can’t.
Knitting: Puppet
Every sock knitter has it—an ever-growing stash of leftover sock yarn. If ever there was yarn with a personality, it’s this motley collection of (ahem) cast-offs. It whines “I’m so pretty, please use me.” It nags: “Don’t you love me anymore?” It mocks: “Ha! I cost a small fortune and I’ll never be used.” If the voices of abandoned sock yarns hav...
