80 Blankets: Double The Butta

I originally started this blanket wanting to work front post double crochet stitches. This makes a VERY squishy fabric. It also eats through yarn like crazy. You can see my start using this stitch in the photo above. I might revisit it using a different yarn. We’ll see. For now, though, I switched gears and …

Crocheting Mystery Yarn: It’s Cozy

I have no idea what this yarn is, but I’m loving it. Someone was donating it and I couldn’t resist the bulky roving and color palette. In weight it’s similar to Lion Brand’s Fifty Fifty yarn. It’s definitely not that, though. Also comparable in weight would be WATG’s Crazy Sexy Wool. It’s also not that. …

Free Faux Fur Knitting Pattern: Snowy Owl Cowl

Last winter (2018) I discovered Go For Faux (GFF) at work (Lion Brand).

It’s That Time Of Year

August is coming to a close. The temps have been noticeably cooler, which means knits have been making more of an appearance; grabbing a cardi to snuggle in or layering on a soft shawl for my commute. With the increased need for warmth comes an intensified desire for knitting time and making all the things. …

Sunflowers & Grannies

The granny square; a crochet motif that will be around forever. I learned how to make granny squares 20 years ago when I started crocheting, and they existed long before that and recently I’ve been noticing a resurgence of them on Instagram. I’m taking up my own hook and jumping on the granny square bandwagon. …

The Avalon Top: A FREE Knit Top Pattern

I whipped up this knit top a few months ago, but held on releasing the pattern until I could get some other eyes to look it over. It’s pretty simple. If you’ve made a garment before then this will be a breeze. And since there’s no sleeves it goes by quickly, which I love. I …

Design Simplicity

For the past two years I’ve had a full time day job, still within the yarn industry, but not involving working as a designer. It has meant many long hours of train commuting and a different perspective on what I want to create. What I want to [primarily] make now are projects with repeats I …
