Knitting: Doll
I knit this doll as a fun way to showcase my handspun yarns, and because, even as an adult, I enjoy playing with dolls. The tail of the mermaid is removable and can be removed and replaced with a skirt. It is ideal for small children – no small parts (the top could be sewn on for very small children), the clothing is easily removable and replac...
Knitting: Scarf
This pattern is named after my grandmother, for whom this scarf was originally knit. My mother suggested that I knit her a Christmas present, and I knew a simple, lacy scarf would be perfect.

Simple lacy tea cozy pattern - originally made for the first Craftster Knitting Challenge. It can be easily sized up or down for different tea pots, and fastened with ties and buttons.
Knitting: Collar
A moebius garter stitch cowl, with lace along the edges. The front buttons up, right where the lace ends so the lace sits like a shirt collar around the wearer’s neck. I’ve planned this at a slightly looser gauge than normally used for garter stitch, to create a nice squishy neckwarmer. Since this won’t get a lot of wear, the looser gauge shoul...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A triangular lace shawl, knit from the nape of the neck downwards, this shawl is great for beginners. There is no dealing with increases in the pattern, but the pattern is interesting enough to stave off boredom. Since it is knit from the top down, the shawl can be made as large as your yarn supply (or attention span) dictates.
