Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
For some, knitting is a simple pastime. For me and many others, knitting is so much more. It gives us purpose, it helps us think or clear our heads, it‘s a creative outlet or a mathematical challenge. We spend so much time on it that a lot of thoughts and feelings are knit into our projects. We knit our stress or aggravation away, we knit posit...

Knitting: Cardigan
A comfortably casual cardigan is a fall staple – for good reason! When it’s too chilly to go out and about without a little something to ward off the oncoming chill, but still too warm to don a thick winter jacket, it’s the magical time when knit sweaters and cardigans are in high season.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This is my personal take on the Pussy Hat: a large and loose-fitting brioche hat, knit with single-ply Merino and Mohair held together, a folded brim and the signature shape that couldn’t be simpler to knit.
Knitting: Scarf, Cowl, Shawl / Wrap
Knit on the bias, this large and cozy scarf or cowl features alternating sections of two-color brioche and stripy texture. It is surrounded by an i-cord for a neat and finished look. Because of the diagonal sections, it looks different every time you wear it and because it’s reversible, you’ll always have the right side facing out.

The pattern is available in English, German and Icelandic. Icelandic translation by Harpa Hreinsdóttir.

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
A Dirndl, in Austria, is either a pink stone fruit, another word for girl or a traditional Austrian or Bavarian dress. This shawl is a holey-er version of the Dirndl Sorbet shawl that I designed as an accessory for my mum’s hand-sewn Dirndl dress and in the colors that were chosen for my hometown’s newly created traditional garbs (grays and gre...

Inspired by all the odds and ends of beautiful gray yarn that have accumulated from previous projects, New Beginnings is a triangular shawl in stockinette stitch with varying short row sections in garter stitch.

Knitting: Poncho
This shawl-turned-poncho is a stylish alternative to your traditional triangular shawl.

Sorbet is another name for the Cornelian Cherry and translates to Dirndl in (Austrian) German. And a Dirndl, in turn, is either said fruit, a girl or a traditional Austrian or Bavarian dress.

Knitting: Sleeveless Top
Knit top down, starting at the neckband, this racer-back tank-top is shaped like one big chevron – knit in the round: increases in the back and decreases in the front create a unique shape and fit. It’s the perfect summer garment and looks great in both a single color or the two color version.

Knitting: Mittens
My sister loves turtles. I secretly call her turtle-guru (but don’t tell her). When she asked me to knit some baby stuff for her to give to a friend, I went a little crazy searching for cute turtle baby stuff. I love Sheldon, and I wanted a whole set to match it. Since I couldn’t find turtle (or honeycomb) mittens, at least baby sized, I came u...
