Hyphenated

I am quite proud of my newest knitting pattern. Hyphenated is my favorite design that I have created thus far, and it is also among my favorite sweaters that I have knit, ever. I knit two samples for this design. The sample shown here is the pullover version. In a few days I’ll be posting…

Scrappy V: My New Summer Design

Isn’t Alli’s rainbow Scrappy V just amazing?! My favorite and most used yarn weight is, without a doubt, sock yarn. After wrapping up a shawl, sweater, pair of socks or some other fingering weight project, I am known to place my leftover balls of yarn on a shelf. Each day I walk by said shelf…

You may be familiar with my not-so-stranded method for knitting colorwork in which I catch the floats following every stitch. While I have determined that this method works best for me, it…

The Queue Jumping Soldotna Crop
