Knitting: Cowl
Knit on the bias in super soft and light Malabrigo Lace, this cowl sports beaded stripes with simple sections of stockinette in the solid colors on either side. Seed stitch keeps the edges from curling. The cowl starts with a provisional cast on and is knit back and forth. Kitchener stitch is used to seam it together.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
I designed these simple mitts for my middle school knitting class. I wanted them to learn how to cable and how to measure and knit from a gauge swatch. I didn’t want to overwhelm them with too many skills at once, so these are knit flat and seamed up the side, leaving an opening for the thumb. This eliminates learning how to use dpns and h...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The school where I teach holds an auction every year to raise money. I decided to offer up a custom knit pair of socks and several students were excited about the prospect of getting a hand knit pair from Mrs. S. The winner was an 8th grade student and she chose the colorway. I knit up a swatch with the cluster stitch and she loved it! So, not o...
Knitting: Brimmed Hat
Double Slouch is a simple hat using two colors of DK weight yarn held together. It’s quick and produces great results! The brim and main body of the hat are worked in opposite rib patterns so that when the brim is folded back, it looks identical. A big pom pom finishes off the hat and helps the slouch…..well, slouch!

Instructions are given for two sizes - a short cowl or a longer, infinity scarf. Charts and line-by-line instructions are both included.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Both my husband and I are huge film noir fans and one of our sentimental favorites is Dark Passage with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. I wanted to create a sock that fit the mood of the movie so, of course, it needed to be in black and gray. An unusual two-color cast on starts the sock (both a video and photo tutorial are available) and then...
Knitting: Cowl
Frozen Spires is a very quick knit and would make a terrific gift! The cowl starts and ends with a rolled hem and there are just 42 rows in between. Use a lofty, single ply yarn to get a cushy soft cowl. Both charted and written instructions are included. One row is a bit finicky, but there are clear instructions for completing it successfully. ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
If you are an avid sock knitter, like me, then you have a ton of leftover sock yarn that is languishing in the stash. While I admired those who use their scraps to knit a sock yarn blanket, I knew I didn’t have the fortitude to finish one. So, I designed Oddments as a way to use up leftovers and still have a beautiful pair of socks! A wrap...
Knitting: Cowl
Lace and loops combined with a soft and luxurious yarn make for a delicate and feminine cowl. The simple lace pattern is repeated four times and then the I-cord loops are added

Columns of purl V’s are flanked by panels of seed stitch. To spice things up a bit, the pattern is continued on the heel flap. Other than that,

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I designed these top-down socks to show off Prism Saki’s Oklahoma colorway which is available exclusively at Gourmet Yarn Co. in Oklahoma City - my LYS. However, the pattern is suitable for any highly variegated yarn as the intention is to break up the colors with slipped, then cabled stitches. Instructions are given for cabling with or wi...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The slip stitch cable pattern is designed to show off highly variegated yarn while limiting unsightly flashing or pooling. The pattern is carried on the heel flap and there are instructions for finishing the center diamond while decreasing for the toe.
Knitting: Pullover
Let’s face it. Women are all different shapes and sizes. We do not fit neatly into a preset list of five, six, or even seven sizes. Some of us have tiny rib cages with a large bust. Others of us have a modest bust, but a thicker torso. While some do fit easily into standard sizes, those that don’t have to struggle to alter patterns t...
