More summer knitting….

One project I’ve embarked on this year is updating older patterns with new photography, because let’s face it – my photos sucked. They were really not good and not presenting my designs well. Earlier this year I met Tabetha Hedrick, fellow designer and photographer, who did some wonderful photos for me. With life intervening, it’s […]

So What Would You Knit for an Alien?

Oh, I can see your faces now – you think I’ve finally gone off the deep end – lol. No, I haven’t – not yet. I did however, happen to mention to my fellow Indie Design Gift A-Long designers that I was going to visit Roswell, NM last weekend. Last year I promised my DH […]

Secret Knitting…..

This year has been one of doing more ‘secret’ projects than self-published ones for me. I’ve been fortunate to have several submissions accepted. While knitting for publishers is fun & rewarding-I can’t share any details about the projects until the publisher releases the book/mag/pattern. I can share some teaser photos-no details-though! So here are a […]

A new month & fall….

A new month & fall is upon us. Here in Colorado the days are warm & the nights are cool. The Aspen leaves have turned into fall reds & yellows and the prairie grasses from green to brown. Winter is right around the corner. It’s time to think about cool weather knitting. And to help […]

Well, here we are-over a month since my last post…

where does the time go? It has been a pretty busy month so I guess that’s the answer. So what have I been up to…let’s see…… I’m taking Shannon Okey‘s online Designer class, which is great! We started with style sheets and I now have a beautiful new one. The first pattern to be published […]

Say hello to………

Aztec, Woodland Rose Tunic and Shazzam! – all three are my designs in the newly released book “Circular Knitting Redefined – Leave Those Straight Needles Behind” by House of White Birches. And making this book really special for me is not only having three designs included, but Aztec made the cover! Here’s DRG’s (parent company […]

What a month…..

this December has turned out to be! Busy, fun, exciting, frustrating, cold and beautiful. Most of my energy this month, and DH’s, went toward finding that happy middle ground between tempering my SIL’s enthusiasm for Christmas and while celebrating it. This year has been one of learning how to live with a developmentally disabled person […]
