I first was introduced to Heather Zoppetti the way I’m sure many knitters were — via her stunning Dahlia Cardigan in the Fall 2011 Interweave Knits. It was a garment that really made me sit up, take notice, and take immediately to the internet (via ravelry) to find out what else this designer has done. [...]
A little more than 2 years ago, my life changed irrevocably with the arrival of a squalling, demanding, endearing, intoxicating, impossible, wonderful creature — my daughter, Olivia. On some level, I knew that I would have to shift my life around to accommodate this new presence, but at the time, I didn’t appreciate just how [...]
I’m happy that I’m finally getting around to re-visiting and releasing Olivia Petit under my own design line – Connie Chang Chinchio Designs. The release of Olivia Petit also coincides with a brand new logo for the babies and kids’ section of my design line – Piccoli Chinchio – designed by my talented brother. [...]
It’s been a while since I’ve released a pattern — either through traditional publishing channels or under my own indie line — so it’s with great pleasure that I’m sharing two new babies/kids’ patterns under my Connie Chang Chinchio Piccoli Tesori line. Both patterns are sized to fit ages 6 months to 6 years [...]
I’m already thinking of the next indie design and I’m trying to match it up with a good yarn. First up on the table, a bevy of beauties from Sweet Georgia – light green is silk crush sock, dark green is cash silk lace, orange is tough love sock, turquoise is merino silk dk, and [...]

Ysolda thought I was being a bit stingy with the photos on the last post and suggested I post a few more; a request I’m only too happy to comply with. Again, [...]
Alexandria’s pattern page with specs and more info.
Well, the promise to post more about Alexandria went from “later today” to “later two weeks from now”…one of the hazards of a full time job I guess (especially one that requires travel to Virginia 4 days out of the week for the foreseeable future).

I’ve been wanting to meet Mary Jane for a while now. I came close in June when my sister-in-law came to the US to visit us. We managed to get up to Maine, but an hour long stop in Freeport turned into 6 hours and we didn’t have enough time to make it up [...]
The Winter IK issue is out and I have a short sleeved cardigan in it, the Alpaca Pleats Jacket. Unfortunately, this is one of those projects that came down to the wire for me, so I didn’t have a chance to take any proper modeled photos. The best I did was a photo [...]
The Cayuga Set is here.
Because not everyone likes both hats and mittens, I’ve decided to release them separately. If you’d like to purchase both patterns, I’m also offering a set option, where you can purchase the set for a 25% discount off the price of the individual patterns.
The Cayuga Set:
Yarn: Classic Elite [...]
