Crochet: Baby Blanket
Afghans are hands-down my favorite gift to give someone. My cousin is pregnant with her first child right now and I wanted to make her a special blanket, large enough for baby and mama. I waited to begin until she finalized the colors of the nursery. She chose yellow, white, gray and teal. You could easily make this any combinations of colors, 2...
Crochet: Throw
Afghans are hands-down my favorite gift to give someone. I wanted to thank my son’s tennis coaches for all their hard work, dedication and support. I also think the thicker and heavier an afghan is, the better it is. Ususally I prefer to double worsted weight yarn and use large hooks/needles to make it heavy, comforting and also a surprisingly q...

All knit stitches, with strategically placed yarn overs and purposely dropped stitches make an incredible reversible pattern that blooms beautifully after blocking. Easy to knit and super fun to drop and unravel stitches on purpose!
Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
This shawl was an exciting exploration for me. Turning a pretty lace stitch pattern into a top down shaped triangular shawl involves figuring out how to make a single increase on either side and a double increase down the center. My goal was to make it look seamless and effortless, without compromising the beauty of the design. For an edging, I ...
Crochet: Shawl / Wrap
Crocheted from the top down in an easy to memorize increasing repeat, this lace shawl is made in one continuous piece of yarn and only one large skein -- 2 ends to weave in!

Pleated Edge Scarf
Crochet: Cape, Shawl / Wrap

Crochet: Legwarmers
As an 80’s child, not only did I wear legwarmers, but my vision and inspiration for this design was the video for ZZTop’s “Legs” with the cute girls dancing around in mini skirts, heels and ruffled angle socks. Ok, so there’s a little Flashdance inspiration in there, too.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
NOTE: each yarn is used on one row at a time, and you only turn your work after 3 consecutive rows are worked in same direction, one with each color. The interesting part of this is although you are only knitting, because you are forcing the direction of the work, garter stitch is not what you create, but rather alternating horizontal stripes of...

I adore wearing this flower decorated lace scarf. It is bubbly and cheerful and the mood definitely rubs off on me when I wear it!

Crochet: Skirt
The fantastic Art Deco architecture of the Chrysler Building in New York City, especially the nested shapes at the top of the building, were my inspiration for this skirt. By using post stitches and shell increases, I was able to mimic those nested shapes at the four “raglan” corners of the skirt. This skirt is made in one piece from the waist d...
Crochet: Cape
I created this belted crochet lace cape while preparing for the taping of Crochet Corner on Knitting Daily TV, season 400. I wanted to wear a new piece that would be flattering on me. My theory was that the belted cape offers the illusion of shaping due to the placement of the belt. If you cinch your waist with the minimum amount of fabric requi...
