Knitting: Tee
Pattern grading is a stressful and time consuming task, but size inclusivity is important. Heck, all inclusivity is important. Isn’t that what we learned in preschool?
Knitting: Cowl
3 years ago, I went to my first ever Knit City as an attendee. Prior to that year, I was a closet knitter and had absolutely no idea of the world I was missing out on. I wore a rectangular shawl knit out of some cheap yarn, based on a stitch pattern I had found on the internet. Between rushes of invigoration, I felt an awkward sensation of bein...

The year 2020 was a new beginning for me. Freshly discharged from surgery follow-ups, I was finally putting the last two years behind me. It was supposed to be the year everything returned to ‘normal’ but instead, 2020 became “The Year of the Pandemic”. We were told to stay 2 metres apart from others at all times, including our loved ones who l...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Amidst the current pandemic our world is facing, there’s an underlying sense of panic. Everyone is asked to stay home and isolate, and many of us aren’t sure what to do with ourselves. On the bright side, it’s an introvert’s paradise, really. Let’s all knit socks in the comfort of our own homes and be grateful we have the internet to share our ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Me in bed, 9 hours post-surgery, staring at my elevated ankle on Friday the 13th: FRIDAY SOCKS.
Knitting: Cowl
Last year was such a dream. The collection of ideas swirling around in my head somehow manifested from my fingertips. One by one, they slithered out like yarn from the inside of a yarn cake. And yet, it still feels like a reality that exists only in my imagination.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Inspired by the yarn they are made in, these are home socks. They are socks for being cozy in the comfort of your own home; Socks for the days you feel overwhelmed by the world and need to hide away from it all; Socks for when you need to feel connected to family. These are socks for when you just want to go home.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
Criss-crossing stitches and triangle points, oh my! This year I’m delighted to be collaborating with more and more indie yarn producers, including the lovely West Coast Colour family. For the first time since I began designing, I’m really feeling like more than just a knitting hobbyist. It feels as though I’ve crossed over into a new realm of d...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
People are more than just one thing. We are multidimensional and fluid--so is this shawl.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Double brim beanies are my go-to for mindless knitting. They’re what I knit when I’m in between more complicated designs, or when I don’t have the brain capacity to look at a pattern. With the perfect combination of knitting endless rounds of stockinette and special techniques to indulge in, they’re an awesome knit for when you just need to unw...
Knitting: Softies - Other
A number of years ago, I started thinking about the comforting properties of stuffed animals. Young children are soothed by the touch and feel of their squishy friends, but I too, discovered the value of having a miniature companion with me on the days I just didn’t feel up to facing the world. I made Paul and started taking him with me wheneve...
Knitting: Sleeveless Top
When life is a constant mishmash of chaos and disaster, what do we have to believe in but ourselves? The Calamity Crop Top (or rather, Calami-Tee) is my little nod to self empowerment and taking back control over my body, myself, and my life.
Knitting: Cowl
Every day is a battle, and it’s in the darkest of those days that we realize we are stronger than we think we are. I’m not a lover or a fighter. I am a warrior.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Sometimes life hits you with unexpected challenges. For me in 2018, it was a broken ankle. I had to learn to be still, and to accept help. But through the darkness came the opportunity to fully engage in my craft. Although I was physically immobile, my design aspirations took great strides. These socks, inspired by my surgical scars, mark the u...
Knitting: Hair accessories
The 90’s are back and better than ever. This little throwback to childhood is giving 90’s kids all sorts of nostalgic feels as adults. Crocheters have taken the velvet scrunchie train to new levels, so I wanted to provide a clean, seamless knitted version for the knitters that are eager to get on board.
Knitting: Cowl
My sister is a nomad. She is a wanderer of places and a wanderer of hobbies. This one is for her.
Knitting: Earwarmers
This newly reworked headband pattern features a slight variation on a classic chain-link cable. Whereas cables typically alternate crossovers, one side of this cable always remains on top, forming the moral ‘High Road’. Although both paths contain twists and turns, one comes out on top of each crossroad every time.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
The Cobbler Cap is a worsted weight, slouchy beanie, rich in texture resembling historical cobblestone streets, or a warm blueberry cobbler. Using under one skein each of two colours, the pattern boasts a deliciously detailed and intricate design, but is much simpler to make than expected. The stitch patterns used are a great way to introduce c...
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Casual Fridays with a twist--literally! The twisted stitching adds a bold and unique look to the classic ribbed hat. Unlike many other ribbed hat patterns, crown shaping on The Friday Beanie maintains its twisted rib pattern all the way up! Knit with a chunky yarn, this hat is wondrously squishy and warm, but it’s also super easy to adapt to ot...
Knitting: Cowl
The Cobbler Cowl is a funnel-shaped, single loop cowl, rich in texture resembling historical cobblestone streets, or a warm blueberry cobbler. Using one skein each of two colours, the pattern boasts a deliciously detailed and intricate design, but is much simpler to make than expected.
