My First Knitting Experience: My links

I love all things nature, seeing, smelling, feeling, wearing, photographing, recreating, and just ‘being’ in nature. A lot of my projects reflect my love of nature with use of flowers or animals, and also my quirkiness in the fact that I love to make ‘bazaar’ and off the wall items for my wearing pleasure. I wish that my circle of friends and family included more weirdos like me, but for now, I remain the only one appreciative of the yarnically silly arts…

When I make my patterns, I try to keep the majority of charts and large photos on pages that do not include written instruction. I do this so that you can save ink when you print the pattern-not everyone needs to print out photos and charts. This was something I struggled with for a while. I love the look of having a nice photograph mixed in with the words of a pattern, it is aesthetically pleasing, but my need for pinching pennies won out, and I have opted to go easy on the pocketbook and printers of the world.

I love making up my own patterns, which is something that took me by surprise. When I first started crocheting, I never thought I could make something without a pattern. I get a great thrill out of seeing someone else make something that I designed, which is why I do like to throw some free patterns out there. When I blog my free patterns, they aren’t usually tested, they are usually very ‘skeletal’ and mainly just for fun. Feel free to test them out and report back to me with any issues, I’ll be happy to tweak them. All of my paid patterns have been tested for errors.

Come join me in my group! A fun place for kindred spirits! http://www.ravelry.com/groups/dragonbirds-nest

I am a stay at home mom, and I sell patterns and projects I make to help out our family as much as I can without having to leave them. I love what I do, all of it! ♥

How did I get my ridiculous name? Easy, my son always liked dragons and my daughter has always loved birds…so much so, in fact, that when we were at a park once and she was three a woman came up to me and said, ” I met your daughter, Bird.” HUH?? Yup. My kid told people her name was Bird. She denies this though, but I know better.
