I have a new set of videos taking a look (again) at the Chinese Waitress Cast On. I realized that my favorite way to make this cast on, with a crochet hook (my prior video showing this technique) was actually producing a twisted first line of chain stitches, and I was determined to figure out… Continue reading Chinese Waitress Cast On (again)
Hello all! Today I released my Harmonious Echo cowl pattern. This cowl features all the same cables as my Harmonious Echo pullover pattern, but it a smaller cowl pattern - so if you loved those cables, but didn't want to knit a whole sweater, this cowl is for you! It is available on Ravelry right… Continue reading New cowl pattern!
Wow, things sure have changed since my last post in early March! How is everyone doing? Pretty much all of my 2020 events have been cancelled, which is understandable, but still disappointing. A pretty big percentage of my yearly income is from teaching, so that's hurt a bit. On the other hand, I've had more… Continue reading How are things?
Hello all! So sorry it's been so long - a lot has happened, and I've been super busy! But I've reached a bit of a breather in my schedule (albeit not a very long one) so I figured I should post to catch you up! If you remember, I told you all about our house… Continue reading Checking In!

I finished up my sweater design, and just in the nick of time, too! 🙂 I can't wait for you to see it - it'll be in the next issue of Cast On magazine, so you'll have to wait just a little bit longer! As part of my sweater, I used… Continue reading Channel Island Cast On and Bind Off
Hi again! Sorry it's been so long, I've been swamped lately! We survived Hurricane Florence here with no lasting damage - we got about 8" of rain all told, and some debris in our yard from the wind, and we lost power for about 4 or 5 hours, but that's about it. Several local roads… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 9/19/18
Hi all! I haven't touched my Vitamin D cardigan since last week - so no change there. I'm trying to get my socks done for the next Cast On issue - I'm almost to the toe on the first sock! I need to get to knitting faster because I am behind my self-imposed deadline for… Continue reading WiP Wednesday 6/20/18
