Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks were the result of playing with yarn and stitch dictionaries. I wanted a stitch pattern that would show off variegated yarn and keep it from being ‘ugly’. The Ice Cream Sundae Socks were the result!
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
These socks come from several ideas, but the biggest one was the idea of travelling lace leaves. I fell in love with this motif the first time I saw it, and this seemed the perfect place to use it! When I was working the partial garter rib, it reminded of a newly sown garden, all in neat lines. Hence, the name of the socks was a relatively easy...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The idea of a striped shawl using gradient sets had been something I’d been considering for a bit. It was some experimentation with gradient swatches that led to the creation of this shawl!
Knitting: Mittens
The original inspiration for Woodland Mittens was a hat that I designed a few years ago for the Ravelry Designer’s Challenge, based on a woodland theme. This stitch pattern brought to my mind the image of moss in the knots of trees, with it’s double-moss stitch enclosed within the cable sections.

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
The idea for the Spiralling Star Fingerless Mittens came from an online knit-along which challenged participants to create something using the Star Stitch pattern. While swatching, I found a particular version of the Star Stitch that created a spiral effect, and these mittens were born from that!
Knitting: Cowl
This cowl was created as part of the Initiate Knit Design Challenge, hosted by Francoise Danoy of Aroha Knits. The goal of the challenge was to help people get their design ideas off the ground, and this super-bulky lace and cable cowl was the result!
Knitting: Drawstring Bag
Inspiration for this Mitered Drawstring Project Bag came from the Ravelry Designer’s Challenge. The challenge was to create a bag using mitered squares, and this was the result! I was looking for something durable, big enough to be a project bag for my knitting, and something that would use up those leftover skeins I had in my stash. This patte...
Knitting: Drawstring Bag
The Ribbed Bag of Many Things came about as something I made up for my roommate to put her headphones and mp3 player in, but it could be used to hold just about anything!. It’s a bag knit in the round using 1 by 1 ribbing, then seamed at the bottom with whip stitch, or mattress stitch if you prefer. Eyelets at the top allow for a twisted cord o...
