This is a lovely spring shawl to wear the next time you wander through Versailles, or yo...

Echoing the grand Art Deco glass of Los Angeles’ Oviatt Building, this sock’s slip stitch pattern creates an eye-catching geometry. Ribbing feeds into the window pane design, making a stretchy, well-fitting sock. Much like the period by which it was inspired, Oviatt is functional, elegant and modern.

Wild Growth is a study in gauge. In the larger gauge, the gauntlets look more rustic, whereas the smaller gauge produces a more delicate effect. In either case, the pattern resembles leaves and vines wandering over the back of the hand, much like a wild growth meanders over a hillside.

Many years ago my grandmother gave me a pair of knit slippers for Christmas. These were store-bought slippers made from a bright red acrylic. I loved them so much that I actually wore holes in them. I came across them in a drawer last year and realized that I now had the skills to knit my own pair using any yarn I liked. Whip these up in a sturd...

Inspired by the colorway’s tag line, excuse me while I mix this dye, Psychedelia is a trippy sock with swirling colors and zig-zagging slip stitches. The pattern itself is a simple lace repeat that is easy to follow. Work this in your favorite variegated yarn for a swirling look or your favorite solid and watch the triangles pop.

Tendrils of lace curl around the leg and down onto the foot of this lovely sock. Large sections of stockinette make for a fast knit, but the lace work keeps the pattern interesting. This pattern will work well with both solid and variegated yarns.

The closely-spaced cables on this sock, lined up neatly in ribs, are reminiscent of the beautiful plumeria leis found in Hawaii. Plumerias come in various shades of pink, yellow and white; however, this sock will look lovely in any color you choose.

Early April in Paris finds the Jardin de Tuileries overflowing with beautiful tulips. These lacy socks remind me of the ruffle edged parrot tulips I first saw in that beautiful garden many years ago. With the openness of the lace pattern they make for a lovely springtime sock.

I spend a lot of time on the computer, more than I care to admit really, and my hands are always cold. As necessity is the mother of invention I was inspired to knit up a pair of gauntlets to keep me warm while leaving my fingers and thumb free to type and mouse. I wanted them to be fun and bright to lift my spirits while plugging away at work. ...

The scarf can easily be made lon...

These socks are a pretty basic toe up sock pattern made interesting by the lace work. I found the lace stitch in the Vogue Stitchonary Volume One. The yarn used was hand dyed by Jo at Baywood Yarns and it is a dream to work with. If you can get your hands on some I highly recommend using it, otherwise any sock yarn that gets gauge will work as a...
