Andie at Prom

I had so much fun designing these! The pattern is based on Molly Ringwald’s character from the John Hughes classic “Pretty in Pink”. Mine are embellished with beads, but those are optional, of course. These are the perfect accessory for a special night in the 80s (or to keep your hands warm as you are typing right this minute).

Annabel Lee

This shawl design is based on my favorite poem and is my homage to Poe. The lace pattern is a study in negative space and motion. The solid rectangles represent caskets and the decreases flow in different directions to give the piece the feel of an angry ocean. The lovely Sasha at Skein Shop tech edited this one and has a very nice write up on her website. She also interviewed me, which was super fun.

Shell Belle Socks

My newest design! These ruffled ankle socks are worked cuff down and will work up quickly in sport weight yarn. When we were growing up, I used to sing the Beatles song of the same name to my sister, Michelle. I hope these happy socks make you want to sing as well!

Available through Knit Picks and Ravelry.

Unicorn in the Grass Socks

This is a fun addictive and quick sock pattern to work. It is written to be very beginner friendly, although I would suggest having experience working in the round. Stitch pattern will look nice in a variety of striped or varigated yarns. Just have fun. It’s only knitting!

Goldberry Mitts

Lacy and delicate in appearance, but easy to knit. Good beginner lace project for someone comfortable with knitting in the round.

Days Like This Mitts

“When it’s not always raining, there’ll be days like this. When there’s no one complaining, there’ll be days like this…” – Van Morrison

These mitts are for everyday wear. Super stretchy, cushy and easy on the eyes.

Increases and Decreases

No matter which class I’m teaching, I like to give my students a handout that covers increases and decreases and how to knit them. It is nice to have them listed all in one place.

I have labelled them as either right or left-leaning, which can be helpful in choosing the proper stitch, whenever your pattern doesn’t specify which increase or decrease to use.

So, here is the PDF for you. Enjoy!
