Find it on Etsy Find it on Ravelry I've been making this scarf for a little while and I'm really enjoying it, so it's now an available pattern.

I tried to make this shawl when I first started knitting and it was a bit too ambitious for my skills then but I really liked it so I kept it in my queue for later. I added more rows to the body and border and it's a very good size to be useful. The… Continue reading Forest Canopy Shawl
I decided to try taking the train 2 days a week to school. I save $20 a day doing this. I can knit/crochet all I like Saves on the wear and tear of my car I get less exhausted and frustrated by the traffic, bridges, school zones and trains. My first 2 days on the… Continue reading Dishcloths on a train

This one is in Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk, @880 yds. LOVE this wool, soft and pleasant, but light. Added beads to the YO's… Continue reading Wedding Ishbel for Sarah

Not… Continue reading Chevron scarf in luxury yarns

I didn't pick colors for this shawl, but for another and they were far gloomier than they… Continue reading The Gloomy Ulmus
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 finished scarf is for sale in my etsy shop and the pattern is for sale here in the pattern section. I love it in red, so pretty.
The Fragile Heart shawl pattern by Boo Knits was a nice knit. Picot bind off - who knew? Took a long time to do, but worth it (seems you always hear that about the picot bind off). I worked on this during lunch breaks in my car at work and it was relaxing. Malabrigo lace… Continue reading Fragile Sunshine
This long but narrow shawl I'll probably use as a scarf. The pattern, Momijigari by Beth Kling, is pretty simple, but the stitch count might get to you before anything else. After a while, I could only handle one row a night. Knit with Pagewood Farms sock yarn in the colorway Peaceful.
