Cover Girl: Blazing Cowl

I was thrilled to see the latest copy of Crochet Today! magazine–that’s my cowl design on the cover!

The new editor asked me to do something special for the cover, so I pulled out all of the [post stitch, cluster, chain loop, and varying stitch height] stops to create the Blazing Cowl.  I had a LOT [...]

I Have A Lot of Scissors.

It’s true. I was attempting to  unearth my sewing machine this weekend and I could reach almost all of these pairs from one spot. And yet, I am always looking for a pair of scissors.

My favorites are as follows:
For Fabric: Clover Ultimate Shears EX-200 (green handles). These scissors are awesome–they are light, sharp, and accurate–the [...]

Kid’N Ewe Fiber Fest

Yesterday Nikki and I headed out to Boerne, TX for the annual Kid’n Ewe Fiber Festival. This was my first year attending, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  There were plenty of vendors selling yarn and wares, and it was low on the “frenzy” that you might see at bigger festivals. In fact, when [...]

Where the Magic Happens

Inspired by Sister Diane’s podcast about being more authentic online, and her video on putting things away, I thought I’d share a little bit of my studio space with you. Warning: if you think my job is at all glamorous, avert your eyes!
Whenever I’m in the middle of a lot of projects, things start piling [...]

Projects from Crochet Adorned

I was googling Crochet Adorned this week (yes, I do that!)  and I came across some fun projects inspired by the book, so I just had to share! There are so many ways you can use it even if you don’t want to make the exacct projects within–the stitch dictionary and how-to info makes for [...]

Pssst–Little Crochet

So it’s still really early for me to tell you about my next project, but since I popped the cover up in the sidebar over there (click through to see if you’re in a reader!), I thought I should mention it. All of this time I’ve been working on a new book. It’s called Little [...]

Just for the Fun of Knit

When I saw Susan B. Anderson’s new pattern collection of woodland creatures in Knit Simple, I knew I had to buy a copy. Sure, I already have her book, Itty-Bitty Toys, and no, I haven’t made anything from it. YET. But I did help a student of mine make the super adorable giraffe–and we crocheted [...]

Great Turnout!

Last night was my “Meet the Author” Event at Westfall Library here in San Antonio, and holy crap, a lot of people showed up! Enthusiastic crocheters (okay okay, and my mom and sister) filled up the room and it was a pleasant surprise! I talked a little bit about how I got started with crochet [...]

Temp: 94 degrees.

Yarn: Superbulky Malabrigo Rasta.
Knitter: Hot and bothered.
So I finished–except for the collar–my Cropped Cardi. To my dismay, it did kind of come out as a knitted fat suit. I left all of the ends loose after sewing up,  just in case the whole thing needed to be unraveled. And then I put it back in [...]

Feats of Crochet (And Knitting)

This week I was finally able to put the finishing touches on my * favorite * ever crochet project. (I think that might actually be a true statement). Now presenting, my Garden Path Shawl!

The pattern is by LilyGo and it is great, well worth the $6. I worked exclusively from the diagrams, I am sure [...]
