Knitting: Vest
The lace design in this vest was inspired by a brief but lovely stay at “The Inn of the Mountain Gods” in Southern New Mexico. I’m no expert, but growing up in New Mexico has given me a fascination and respect for the Indians of the Southwest. This resort is run by the Mescalaro Apache Tribe. It was named after The Mountain Gods who are said to ...

Knitting: Scarf
This is the answer to a request for a scarf to match the Stitch School Mitts. It contains the same elements: I-cord edging, Quaker ribbing, lace, provisional cast-on, and grafting or I-cord bind-off. The scarf can be seamlessly joined to form a loop or left as a straight scarf.
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl was inspired by my love for trees. I like them all, bonsais to red woods, deciduous to coniferous. One particular favorite is the Ponderosa Pine. The deep grooves in their trunks have a delightful smell of sweet vanilla. So throw on this cowl for crisp fall day and stop to smell the trees!

The technique is described, written and charted and blank charts are provided. Test the waters with the included cozy pattern before diving into the cowl.
Knitting: Cowl
The inspiration for this design came from my cherished Navajo Rug. Even before I became involved in the fiber world I was fascinated by Navajo weavers. They create intricate, unique designs that are never written down before they appear in their rugs. But don’t worry, for this cowl I will take you into “charted territory”.

Knitting: Vest
This vest will have any young man looking dapper even in a diaper! It is knit from side to side and requires no seaming. A unique I-cord cast on flows seamlessly into I-cord edging, and then the I-cord edging flows into the I-cord bind off for a polished look. Written or charted instructions can be followed and YouTube videos have been created t...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I designed this hat for my “little” bother at his request for a cashmere hat. I was surprised that he even knew what cashmere was much less than that he would appreciate a hand knit item! His initials are CSB hence the unimaginative name for this pattern.
Knitting: Scarf
Yes, I know it is cheesy but ewe is the perfect name for this scarf because ewe is a palindrome, just like the scarf. Not only is it reversible, the cast on and cast off edges look exactly the same!
