New Hats & Hat Pattern in the Shop

This week I’ve been crocheting my fingers to the bone working on a new hat pattern. I love making hats, I really do, and this might be my favorite one yet. Why it’s never occurred to me to write (and sell) the pattern and to make multiples from the same pattern before now…well, I don’t [...]

Recent Publications

I’m still waiting for my copy of Interweave Crochet to get here (my mail is always so slow when it come to crochet magazines!) but you’ve probably already seen the preview, so it’s time to mention it. This marks my first published design in Interweave Crochet, The Breezy Hat (ravelry link).

This is a great, simple [...]

Fiber Day!

Today was a lovely day of fibery fun, organized by The Yarn Shop. Watching the weather channel last night (rain, rain, rain) I was worried that it wouldn’t happen, but luckily we only got a few sprinkles.
The day started out with demos on wool washing, dyeing, and carding. I personally will probably never (well, never [...]

Finally Finished: Lacy Days of Summer Top

Last summer, I started this top from Crochet Today. Originally, I wanted to make it with a fabric bottom, but I never found the perfect fabric. Then I decided to start to crochet the bottom, ran out of yarn, pulled it out, and continued my fabric search. And then it sat for about 9 months. [...]

Picnic Purse Pattern Now Available

I just added this sweet summer clutch pattern, the Picnic Purse, to my Ravelry Store and Etsy Shop.

PDF Pattern, $5.50

In case you couldn’t tell, this design was inspired by summer picnics. One of the things I loved about living in NY was going to central park and lazing about with friends for a potluck picnic! [...]

Tawashi Time

Lately I’ve been “in between” crochet projects- nothing huge (that I can show you) to work on, and so I keep alternating between big things (like the Ripple Blanket) and small, instant gratification things. And so I turned to my stash of Lion Cotton, from which I’ve been knitting washcloths, and thought I’d make some [...]

And the Winner is…

Lucky #7, aka Nikki from BumblesandLu (Nikki, I will email you for your address!).

Nikki said “I have a lot of stickers. So many that I’m constantly trying to give sheets of them away. But my favorites are these awesome 80’s phrase stickers. They’re turquoise & hot pink with sayings like: Totally Radical, Awesome!! & Cowabunga. [...]

Blocks for June

Carol sent some lovely blue and green fabrics for our 12 Squared Quilting Bee June blocks, and this weekend I cleared off my sewing table to get to work on these blocks.  (It was no small feat to clear off the table! And it could use more clearing!)

It was fun to work with the blues [...]

Crafty Stickers Giveaway

I have a secret guilty love of stickers. Ever since I was little, I loved to collect pages of cute little characters, hearts, shiny stars, etc. Only I did not put them in sticker books like so many of my friends– because that would be wasting them. In fact, I’d carefully- carefully- choose when and [...]

More Hat Patterns Available

I added 2 summer hats to my Etsy and Ravelry shops this week.


First up is the quick and simple Lacy Shells Hat. Above is another version I made for moi- from Cascade Pima Silk. I have received lots of compliments on this one and it’s come in handy to keep my head warm this week, [...]
