Blackrocks Wrap

The Blackrocks Wrap was inspired by the pattern made by rivulets of water receding from the ancient rock formations found along the shores of Lake Superior. It features dense cables and is knit flat from one end to of the rectangle to the other. While the sample used a light fingering weight yarn, the patternContinue reading “Blackrocks Wrap”

Woodlot Cowl

This light-weight, densely cabled cowl is perfect for the upcoming temperature swings. It’s the perfect size to tuck under a coat to keep the chilly air off your neck, but since it’s made with a light fingering weight yarn, you won’t get overheated. Knit in the round from the bottom up, there are instructions forContinue reading “Woodlot Cowl”

Mindfulness

Oh, hello there. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Life has been more than a little crazy over the past year and, to be honest, I haven’t felt much like designing. Or knitting. Or much at all, really. All my energy was focused on just existing in this current world and everything else has sortContinue reading “Mindfulness”

Mettle

One of my goals for this year is to update my older patterns to include low vision versions. I’m happy to say that Mettle has now been updated to include two low vision versions: one with black text on white background and another with white text on black background. You can take 25% off thisContinue reading “Mettle”

Cables for Days

When the cable bug bites, it bites hard. For most of February and all of March, I struggled with a lack of motivation to knit. I didn’t touch a set of knitting needles for weeks. Now that my desire to knit has finally reappeared, I’m faced with a different problem: an overabundance of ideas. InContinue reading “Cables for Days”

Awakening

Just this past week, the world seems to have awoken – well, it has here in my little corner of southwest Ohio, anyway. Since moving here from northern Michigan, where spring was really a month of slush brought on by melting snow, I’ve truly grown to love this season. My favorite part of morning walksContinue reading “Awakening”

Stonesinger Cowl

This delightfully squishy cowl features tightly woven cables and lots of texture. Knit in the round from the bottom up with Aran weight yarn, this is the perfect project for when you want something quick yet engaging. I’m absolutely thrilled about this collaboration with Morgan of Knitcraft and Knittery, whose Aran Weight Merino I usedContinue reading “Stonesinger Cowl”

Hearthfire

My Hearthfire shawl holds a very special place in my heart: it was the first pattern I published where I felt like a “real” designer (whatever that means – thanks, imposter syndrome). It was also my first time using Shobha’s (the owner and dyer behind Serendipitous Wool) yarn. I just updated the pattern to includeContinue reading “Hearthfire”

Frostfall

Months ago, I approached Shobha of Serendipitous Wool Company with an idea for a pattern – all I had at the time was a general idea of the stitches and color I wanted, plus a name: Frostfall. In a happy coincidence, one that you might even call serendipitous, Shobha was dreaming up a similar colorwayContinue reading “Frostfall”
