Knitting: Blocks
I was looking for a pattern for simple, 2” blocks to knit. I found lots of patterns, but none was quite what I wanted, so I just sat down with needles and yarn and put this together. I hope you like it!
Crochet: Decorative - Other
This is a tutorial for crocheted Christmas trees. It assumes that the crafter has basic crochet experience, including crochet in the round and double-crochet. The tree is crocheted holding two strands of different Novelty Yarns together…and while this can be quite fussy at first, I think you’ll find that the fuzzy yarns are great camouflage for...
Knitting: Washcloth / Dishcloth, Scrubber
This is just another take on Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth. There are a few changes I’ve made to accommodate my OCD need for symmetry. Each dishcloth takes roughly 1oz. of yarn, as written. I hope you like it!

Knitting: Scarf
Create a triangular, bottom-up Shawl; a rounded, top-down Shawl; a rectangular Stole; or a Scarf with this pattern! Lace Charts are included in the PDF file, along with the instructions.

Knitting: Convertible Gloves
These are a very loose adaptation of a generic mitten pattern, knitted more tightly than I generally found in the patterns I was perusing online. I added the flaps, because I like mittens with flaps! If you don’t want to do a gauge swatch, it’s fine by me…just try the things on as you go, and take notes as you knit (so the second one will match...
