Random Link Love

Well folks, I’ve got nothing. I’ve been hammering away at some worky things and have been feeling incredibly inspired with ideas lately (as is always the case when I don’t have time to work on them–but I’m writing them down!).  But, here is a cute pic of my nephew Tegue a few weeks ago on [...]

Recently Published…

I’ve been a bit behind in mentioning some of my published projects, and here are two I’d like to share with you. First up is the Candy Cloche (Ravelry Link)  in Interweave Crochet’s Winter 2009 Issue. This hat makes  use of a star stitch (or marguerite stitch) on the brim, and a few readers have [...]

The first thing I made was [...]

“Those slippers are so sweet! Kristin is one of my knitting heros. Her new book looks fantastic. I would love to see more patterns for boys. Currently knitting for friends with new babies, boys. Have been knitting from Itty Bitty Hats/Susan Anderson – love her work! I started crocheting first, because I thought [...]

Book Review & Giveaway: Color By Kristin

Back when I was editing magazines in NYC, I came across the work of Kristin Nicholas, a prolific colorwork knitter, embroiderer, and illustrator. She had just released Colorful Stitchery: 65 Hot Embroidery Projects to Personalize Your Home (which is an amazing book by the way!) and I surfed on over to her blog, Getting Stitched [...]

So Long 2009

2009 was a tough year, but I made it through.  I expect it to be quiet through January on this here blog  due to a push-to-the -finish on a work project of mine, but I hope to be back soon!

In 2009 I:
-Lost a Brother-in-Law and subsequently but became a lot closer to my family
-Published my [...]
