Skills and Techniques

I can knit and purl with the best of them! I am a perfectionist and will undo rows if I find a slight mistake I previously missed. I love patterns that add texture and style to a project. My favorite new skill is making reversible cables for great looking scarf!

Get to Know

Thank you for visiting my store! Although a friend of mine showed me how to knit on numerous college vacations, I did not fully pick up the craft until late 2005. I will not admit to how many hours I spend knitting, but you can often find me curled up in a chair with my yarn and needles after work and on weekends.

I love trying new patterns and projects as well as experimenting with new yarns on familiar patterns. There\\\'s nothing like weaving in your last strand of yarn and finishing a project!

I like to knit items that are fun to make. For me, that\\\'s scarves, baby/toddler items, and pet apparel. I only wish I had either a baby or a dog to knit for! I am so excited that my cat can model my pet bandanas and collar cozies. I have been tempted to try several dog sweaters on her but managed to resist that urge. She loves her collar cozy, so she finally has a hand-made treasure of her own!
