Tempted by the Skein of Another!

Have you ever been tempted by a beautiful yarn?  So tempted that you just had to get it onto your needles right away--pushing aside all of the other WIP's in your life?  


Thus was the case of this beautiful yarn from Fly Designs.  The deeply colorful and amazingly soft Merino Cashmere DK that made up this simple Tee-style sweater was all the inspiration I needed for its design!

Bloom Where You're Planted!

New Pattern just released to Ravelry!

Worked from the bottom-up this stocking cap features a two-color picot-edge brim and a bold lotus blossom motif.


The Lotus flower is said to symbolize rising from a dark place into beauty and rebirth. Embracing this symbolism, I placed the lotus motif against the deep green/blue background-- bringing it firmly to the forefront and allowing it to take center-stage.

Going Home



Inspired by the words of John Muir, "Going Home" was created with a day in the mountains in mind.  Sized to fit Teens-Adults with a head circumference of 18-23" this Fair Isle cap knits up doubly warm and soft in Juniper Moon Farms Moonshine yarn.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” ― John Muir, Our National Parks
