What a GREAT free pattern! I had no idea how I could use up just 1 skein of bulky, and this turned out perfect. Mine is Malabrigo Mecha in Piedras. Love the many colors in this colorway, but how it's not overwhelming. The buttons were found at Joann's and what a deal at $3.00. Come… Continue reading Promenade Scarf
Yes, another Venetian Carnival Cowl. When I published this pattern, I know I mentioned that I don't publish a pattern unless I enjoyed it immensely. So, yes, I did make another one. I just love the Madelinetosh Merino Light, in any color! I don't think they have a bad colorway, TBH. These buttons are actually… Continue reading Venetian Carnival Cowl
In the last month I've made quite a few things. I was overwhelmed with work drama so I tuned out from everything - facebook and other sites - for a bit and really just enjoyed the quiet. So meditative to bring life down a notch and just enjoy the scrumptious and squooshy yarns and the… Continue reading Quiet time produces so much joy
This pattern is fun for me, so I wanted to put it out there and hope others enjoy it too. It's done in sock weight and I've made 2 and I need to make some more for Christmas gifts. Find it on Etsy Find it on Ravelry
This crocheted cowl pattern will be available within a few weeks. It uses sock yarn for the body and a worsted weight contrast yarn for the oversized stitching inserts.

My sister is VERY good at things like this, so I was very grateful for the help. My ideas flourish in fluffy fibers, while her's do… Continue reading Back home, safe and sound
Pretty yarn and a very nice pattern called My Dolphin Cowl. Love the picot hemmed edge, it's worth the extra work. They scrumptious yarn was Baah! La Jolla, in mystique. I used just under 400 yards, maybe @380.
This was a very fast and easy project from Malabrigo Book Three. I wanted to try Rasta yarn for a while but it's expensive to buy and it's very hot where I live, so it had to be a practical adventure. The buttons are from Joann's. They really were the only ones I felt went… Continue reading Rasta Neckwarmer
I do tend to make the same patterns over and over and over... I guess patterns are a bit like books, recipes or even friends - some you just enjoy more than others. I kid, I kid. I love Koigu, but I don't care to order it and it comes in a totally different color.… Continue reading A 3rd venetian Carnival cowl?
Find it on Etsy Find it on Ravelry You only need 1-skein of Madelintosh Merino Light (or a nice sock yarn) To make this one. I love that! Unique stitch combinations make up the wavy button band, then the body is perfect for leisurely crocheting. Makes a nice 1-skein gift and works well as a… Continue reading Venetian Carnival Cowl Pattern
