Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks were the result of playing with yarn and stitch dictionaries. I wanted a stitch pattern that would show off variegated yarn and keep it from being ‘ugly’. The Ice Cream Sundae Socks were the result!
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks come from several ideas, but the biggest one was the idea of travelling lace leaves. I fell in love with this motif the first time I saw it, and this seemed the perfect place to use it! When I was working the partial garter rib, it reminded of a newly sown garden, all in neat lines. Hence, the name of the socks was a relatively easy...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The idea of a striped shawl using gradient sets had been something I’d been considering for a bit. It was some experimentation with gradient swatches that led to the creation of this shawl!
Knitting: Mittens
The original inspiration for Woodland Mittens was a hat that I designed a few years ago for the Ravelry Designer’s Challenge, based on a woodland theme. This stitch pattern brought to my mind the image of moss in the knots of trees, with it’s double-moss stitch enclosed within the cable sections.

The inspiration for this Market Bag came from the Ravelry Designer’s Challenge with the theme of “spring awakening”.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The idea for the Spiralling Star Fingerless Mittens came from an online knit-along which challenged participants to create something using the Star Stitch pattern. While swatching, I found a particular version of the Star Stitch that created a spiral effect, and these mittens were born from that!

Knitting: Drawstring Bag
The Ribbed Bag of Many Things came about as something I made up for my roommate to put her headphones and mp3 player in, but it could be used to hold just about anything!. It’s a bag knit in the round using 1 by 1 ribbing, then seamed at the bottom with whip stitch, or mattress stitch if you prefer. Eyelets at the top allow for a twisted cord o...
