Stripes, Part 1

Although I am toiling away (or more truthfully, working my butt off) projects I designed before I started my job keep coming. It makes me seem super productive, and I’ll take it!

Just before I left Texas, my friends at Crochet Today asked me to design a slouchy beach hat. I chose the extended single crochet [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Handmade Holiday 2011

Since it’s February already–mid-Feb, at that, you might think the title of this post was referring to Valentine’s Day, but you’d be wrong. I still haven’t shared my gifts from the winterholidays last year, but so it is. I had a bit of time and a flash of inspiration that led to me making a [...]

Wood Blocks Cardigan PDF

Now back to the beautiful crochet. Thanks everyone for your comments and e-mails. It’s nice to know that there are a lot of crochet-friendly shops out there counteracting the rest–and shocking to hear some of the things said to crocheters, read through the comments for a laugh.

I spent last week editing and tweaking my Wood [...]

An Attitude I Just Don’t Understand

Alright y’all. I’m probably preaching to the choir here, but this weekend when I was working at Yarnivore I met a customer whose story just infuriated me. She told me she had some things to return but wanted to exchange them for classes, and wanted to know if we would “actually” teach her to crochet [...]

Thundersnow Bag

Happy Friday to all! I don’t know where this week went, and that seems to be the case more and more around here! In fact, just yesterday I was thinking about how I forgot to share my holiday gift projects with you–but I’ll save that for another post (fingers crossed). Today I wanted to show [...]

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 [...]

Mr. Owl

A few weeks ago, a crocheter sent me a note on Ravelry with a nice story about the Soft Owl Pillow that she made from my book, Little Crochet. It’s the sweetest little story, and so I thought I would share it with you here.

Just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful treasure in [...]
