Cochineal, Soft Coral, Medomak Goldenrod, Juniper, Denim, Violet I’ve never loved a Sweater that I’ve made more. And I’ve made quite a few over the last 15 years. Knit from the bottom up in the round. I’ve knit a few from the top down in the round so I struggled with wrapping my brain around… Continue reading My Rainbow Dotted Sweater; the linnea pullover designed by bristol ivy
Downton Abbey is what I watched all through the clicking of this yarn that became a hat. I didn’t mean for it to go that way, but it worked.

And now that I've got two, I understand why I need to walk away from the most gorgeous wool yellow and peach oriental area rug I've… Continue reading Braided Rag Rug
My mom taught me cross stitch when I was 12. I no longer have that first little bunny sampler I did. But I do have every one I did after.
