Find me on Ravelry

Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration.


Knitted Socks East and West

I just received a new book on socks in the morning mail. 'Knitted Socks East and West', by Judy Sumner. It looks fantastic. 30 designs inspired by Japanese stitch patterns, it says on the cover. Though I am still a beginner when it comes to knitting, with both written directions and graphs, I hope to make every design in this book.

Double Parquet Nylon Tote

My design in the March 2011 issue of Crochet! Magazine

Dress It Up -- Double Parquet Nylon Tote
Design by Annette Stewart

An easy stitch known as double parquet gives texture and durability to the body of this pretty nylon tote. A pattern of slip and single crochet stitches worked without turning chains makes the bottom extra-strong.
