When Hurricane Sandy hit on October 29th, the entire state of New Jersey was crippled for weeks by power outages, gas shortages, downed trees, and destroyed homes.

A few months ago I took a trip with one of my oldest and dearest friends to Ireland. I fell in love with Ireland and it’s people on our very first day. Ireland has always held a certain draw for me (mostly thanks to Van Morrison) and when I was walking down Grafton Street in Dublin, and a man began playing Raglan Road on his violin, I knew...

I wish glitter was my middle name, so when I first saw the Grand Opera Yarn by Nashua Handknits, I knew it had to be mine.

The glittering metallic ribbon running through the yarn brings out the stitch pattern wonderfully...

Knitting: Sleeveless Top
I was listening to the Paul Simon song, Kodachrome, when I was inspired to design this top. Just like the song, I wanted something that would “give us those nice bright colors/give us the greens of summers/makes you think all the world’s a sunny day”.

She has an amazing eye for design, and was the inspiration for these wristwarmers. Fletter...
