For Sale: Versailles Shell

It’s finally here – 2 weeks to the day of my initial preview! I had hoped to release it sooner, but making sure I got a good, error-free product out took a little more time than I realized. I had the shell tech edited by SavannahChik. She came highly recommended, but as [...]

Preview Monday

Just in time for the hot summer weather, I’m almost ready to release my first self published pattern. Here’s an advance peek so you know it’s not just a figment of my imagination. Modeled by the lovely Jess, Ms. Yarnmonster herself, the design is being tech edited and I hope to have it [...]

Blog Tour Stop – Knit So Fine

Today I have the pleasure of hosting Laura Grutzeck who, along with her co-authors Lisa Myers and

Babies and Drawstring Raglan Progress

Last weekend the Spiders welcomed another new arrival to the ranks – Cassie, Kaitlyn’s adorable little girl. As befitting a knitting obsessed group, we showered the little one with knitted gifts and other warm cuddlies to welcome her into the world. Kaitlyn has good pictures of our efforts on her

Seduction Indeed

I was in Ithaca for the Memorial Day weekend and visited my favorite yarn shop, Knitting Etc. There, I found myself irresistibly drawn to the aptly named new Berroco yarn, Seduce. There was a gorgeous shop sample of Norah Gaughan’s Mobius (from Vol 2) worked in the Seduce rather than the called for [...]

An FO, a new UFO, and an almost FO design

I’ve finished the Lily of the Valley Stole from Lace Style for a while, but forgot to post about it. I used Jaggerspun Zephyr in Suede for this and worked it on a smaller needle than called for in the pattern. I’m not a huge fan of shawls, but I like scarves, so [...]

Blast from the Past

Many moons ago I worked on a design for JCA and I finally got word from Mona that it’s time to share!
I had a lot of fun with this design, but if I were to do it for myself, I’d definitely go for a smaller gauge yarn for better drape and fit. [...]

Summer IK and contest winner

For this hoodie, I was going for a very delicate, airy piece so I knew I wanted a fingering weight yarn combined with a small repeat lace. The Habu silk wool makes for a extremely light, gorgeous fabric – perfect for a beach coverup. The cashcotton 4 ply loses some of the sheen [...]

Italy and a contest

The husband and I just came back from a week long trip to visit his family in Italy. Whenever we make the trek out there, we usually spend the bulk of our time with his family and in his hometown. When vacation time is so limited, it’s hard to justify taking time for [...]
