Focus on Fair Isle

Focus on Fair Isle

This winter I am focusing on one technique that I really want to hone in. Fair Isle. I've finished a hat, which rekindled my love of the technique. Next I need to actually get to knitting a sweater. A task I've only completed once or twice before. Which I loved, but it is quite the [...]

On Writing A Book

On Writing A Book

A Year In Review-ish

Is that how the saying goes? Anyways, [...]

New Pattern…and a Couple of Kits!

One in a while we designers have to admit a big secret... We didn't get it right the first time. Or at least, we could have done it a touch better.

Simple Mornings and Daylilies

“I paint flowers so they will not die. I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return. Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly? I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best. I never paint dreams or [...]
