We Got Married!

Two weeks ago, Paul and I got married (finally)! It was a wonderful, small ceremony & it was the day full of love that everyone said it would be. To keep it manageable and meaningful,  we limited our guest list to about 50 people and did a lot of DIYing with the help of our [...]

Book Signing at Stash

Last weekend we headed down to Castle Rock so I could sign some books at Stash, a gem of a yarn shop just to the south of Denver. Look at the cute setup they had for me!

Crystal (the owner) and Heather (crocheter and hook designer extraordinaire) were so warm and welcoming, it was really lovely. [...]

What We Did On Our Summer Vacation

Last Saturday, Paul and I got in the car and headed out west.

I brought a crochet project with me. The yarn is Berroco Flicker, which I couldn’t resist at Stitches. The pattern is one of my own that will hopefully be published very soon because I wrote it almost a year ago!  On the first [...]

Weaving Marathon

One of the upsides of having a job that is not my hobby, is that when I find a few spare hours I can play with craft stuff just for fun. No pattern to write or deadline to meet.

This weekend I broke into my cricket loom, and took Angela Tong’s Weaving class on Craftsy. I [...]

Signs of Life

Whew. It’s been a whirlwind of visits, working, and trying to sneak in some crochet time. So far so good, I’m really enjoying getting up and going to work every day, being surrounded by smart people and thinking about possibilities.

My sister and nephew were in town last weekend so we crammed in a lot of [...]

So, We Live Here Now

We all made it to Colorado safe and sound. My sister Mary helped us drive up and we arrived last Friday, and since then have been in a hustle of furnishing the house, exploring our new digs, and trying not to go insane. It’s amazing to think we live here now–the weather has been awesome [...]

It’s Getting REAL in Here

Howdy friends. I am writing you from behind a tower of boxes filled with endless yarn, craft supplies, household goods, etc. We have about one more day of packing and then it’s hit-the-road time, we’ll be on our way to Colorado. I am excited, nervous, and mostly ready to get on with it. The dog [...]

Crochet Today May/June 2012

I’ve been meaning to write about two of my designs in the latest issue of Crochet Today, May /June 2012 (on newsstands now).

The first design made the cover (yay)–the Champs Elysees Beret. Named after a famous street in Paris, this lightweight beret features a floral design that radiates from the top down, and also has [...]

New Beginnings

In my last post, I was talking about Spring and new beginnings, and it turns out that I have some big news to share with you. We are about to experience a big huge new beginning of our own.

For the past few weeks I’ve been talking to the fine folks at Craftsy (you might remember [...]

TNNA Phoenix Wrap

Last weekend I flew to Phoenix, AZ for The National Needle Arts trade show. TNNA, as we call it, is a time for yarn shops to come see what’s new and stock their shops for the next season, and it’s also a chance for designers to chat with yarn companies and each other. I go [...]
