Today I’m playing catch up! Thing 1 I’ve been meaning to tell you: There was an article about me in the Detroit News Homestyle section, “Fiber artist takes dyeing skills to whole new level,” this past Friday. You can read it online here. That link will stop working at some point, so I’ve archived it …

Free shawlette pattern!

I have a gift for you! I designed a shawlette and I am giving you the pattern for free! It uses one skein of my Corrie Sock, or you can use two skeins and keep going if you want a full size shawl. I used the Budgie colorway. You can download the free pdf here …

An Homage to the Stubborn people

I admit it. I am stubborn. It has its pros and cons. I am determined and I persevere, no? (I’ll just ignore the cons for now. La la la la la…) So when Heather sent me the pattern for the newest kit, I had to chuckle at the title. Justin’s Stubborn Socks. Yes, Justin is …

The leading character is a knitter, and knitting features prominently! Grounded is the first book in a series, and I want the next book now. (NOW!!) To go along …

Woot! It’s a new hat pattern!

I finally finished it! Woot! It’s absolutely ridiculous that I’ve been working on this hat pattern for two years, but I originally wrote it for sport weight yarn, and while a stockinette stitch hat out of sport weight yarn might be warm enough for some people, I would get frostbite on my ears in that, …

STITCHES Midwest and a Pattern

Merino/Tencel fingering weight yarn "Macaw"

Are you going to STITCHES Midwest? I’ll be there! Come see me at booth 327. I’ve been busily dyeing, spinning, and carding, so there will be lots of new stuff! My newest yarn may still be a little damp, but you don’t mind, do you? My photo area is totally buried right now, so here’s …

Psst! You wanna buy a sock pattern?


Oh dear, that sounds like I’m selling sock patterns out of a trench coat in an alley somewhere. Well, I can’t think of a better title, and I’ve got a ton of stuff to do today before leaving tomorrow morning for the Fiber Event, so I have to make this quick. This pattern has been …

Hat pattern and shop changes

Modulation hat side

Huzzah! Thanks to Margo, the incredibly fast test knitter, I’ve completed my hat pattern! It’s called Modulation, and uses my hand dyed sport weight yarn on size 5 needles. It was really a lot of fun to knit! See that new Patterns link at the top of the page? You can buy it there, or …
