Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Sea level is a shawl knit from the top down entirely in knit stitches, there is no purling! It features a simple body with striping using just one ball of fingering weight yarn. The trick is to find a yarn that changes colour gradually and knit with the inside and outside of the balls. The shawl is finished with a sweet lace edging for a great e...

Knitting: Mittens
A queen bee in a field of honeycombs. I was really inspired by the colors found in a skein of Malabrigo Sock in Turner with dirty yellows, grays and hints of purple to create a mitten with one of my favorite bugs on it. These mittens start with a Latvian Braid, have an afterthought thumb and are grafted together at the top.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves, Beanie, Toque
Knit out of luxurious silky merino, this hat and mitt set is inspired by patterning found in moths. The hat features a wide rib brim and simple patterning using four different colors, but never more than two per row. The mitts are knit using the same motifs and have an afterthought thumb.
Knitting: Scarf
I came up with this simple bias knit scarf because I wanted to show off a small amount of crazy & pretty handspun I had. This scarf can be knit with any weight of yarn.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These mitts are a playful take on traditional Fair Isle motifs using robots and robot imagery inspired by futuristic movie robots of the 1950s.
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens are playful and full of color. The pattern includes two sizes, achieved by different needle sizes, and two different charts, one for knitting with many colors to create a multicolored effect and one using a color changing yarn against a solid color that does all the work for you with minimal ends to weave in.
Knitting: Mittens
These mittens use the traditional tattoo imagery of swallows to make a playful and charming design. They are knit from the bottom up, starting with a Latvian braid at the cuff. The front of the mitten features a wavering pattern and then another Latvian braid, while the back features a continuous flying swallow silhouette boarded by the same wav...
Knitting: Mittens
These Regal mittens are based loosely on Norwegian and Fair Isle motifs and themes. In my work I like to take inspiration from many traditional sources and bring them all together with a modern twist. The subtle regal theme throughout the mitten is announced in the afterthought thumb, adorned with two small crowns. Instead of a typical ribbing o...
Knitting: Earflap Hat
A perfect hat for the little (or not so little) monster in your life. Using bulky yarn and US 10 needles, this is a quick knit! Leave it plain for a fun shaped hat, add strings to tie under the chin, or go all the way with button eyes and an embroidered mouth, there are many ways to customize this hat for whoever is going to wear it.
