Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This pattern is written for a toe-up sock that has a lace panel along the outer edge of the top of each foot that resembles a climbing vine (or a beanstalk!). I have designed it for three sizes, but in reality you could knit it to almost any size as the entire sock is in stockinette stitch except for that lace panel of 13 stitches. I have desig...
Knitting: Skirt
Shimmy is a tutu for the girl on the go - throw it on over a pair of jeans for instant flair, without all the hassle of a traditional skirt. If you know of a little girl who wants to dress like a fairy and still climb trees, this could be just the accessory she needs! Let your own inner child come out to play in the adult version, which is a gr...
Knitting: Cape, Poncho
This pattern is designed to work with any single skein of handspun yarn. It works best with yarns that have a fun or funky texture to them, such as add-ins, coils or corespun yarns. If you don’t have an awesome drawer full of handspun like I do, look for a commercial yarn that has a unique or interesting texture (or get thee to Etsy and buy you...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Rose Tyler has an ever-changing wardrobe as well as a range of hairstyles, so I figured it was time someone gave her a hat that could change with her. This hat is a slouchy style, able to be worn back on your head or pulled down over your ears. It features a Shadow Rib (in honor of the Shadow Proclamation) and a diamond lace panel that reminds ...
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl
This infinity scarf represents the patterns of friendship: the slipped stitch border resembles a woven fabric and the lace pattern in the center crosses paths with itself and intertwines even when going separate ways. Since it uses just one skein of worsted weight yarn, it also provides an excellent opportunity to knit stylish accessories for y...
Knitting: Scarf
Have you ever looked at a skein of handspun and thought, “This is really gorgeous, but what will I make with it?” Never again - this scarf is the answer! This is a pattern designed specifically for single skeins of fabulous handspun yarns. It would probably work equally well with commercial yarns that include a lot of texture or add-ins.
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl
This is a pattern for a lace infinity cowl. The small size uses 50g of sock yarn or approximately 3oz of handspun yarn in fingering to DK weight. The large size uses 100g of sock yarn. You will also need one stitch marker; needle size US 6 for sock yarn or US 8 for sport/DK yarn.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is a top-down, half-circle shawlette inspired by the main character in Kate Chopin’s novella, “The Awakening.” The main body of the shawl is worked in one simple lace design, then the border comes along and transforms everything.
Knitting: Coffee / Tea Pot
This is a teapot cozy designed to be snug-fitting but infinitely adjustable. The cozy is knit in a stretchy ribbed stitch with options for i-cord or crochet chain ties to attach it to your teapot.
Crochet: Coffee / Tea Pot
I was inspired by the PBS Masterpiece series “Downton Abbey.” If I had tea with the Dowager Countess, I’d like to think she’d appreciate this cozy I crocheted using yarn inspired by Violet herself!
Crochet: Scarf, Cowl
Is it a scarf or a cowl? It’s a Scowl! Make this crocheted accessory in any length, then seam it together or leave it flat. The design is mirrored on either side of the foundation chain for adjustable width as well, and the pattern itself is suitable for a beginner crocheter. It includes front post stitches for texture and can be made with any ...
