Three Holiday Dec Ideas

As long as we're on the subject of knitting for the holidays — if you have some spare time and spare yarn, here's some cuties for you.  All these are my original designs, and newly available on Ravelry. First up, felted Holiday Baubles, made with short rows in garter stitch and embellished in any number…

More recent FO’s

Here's some eye candy for ya:  a few FO's! Sari Silk bag:  this was knit from some recycled-sari silk yarn, although at this point I'm not sure exactly which manufacturer.  This major FO accomplishment started life as "Unbiased", a bag pattern from Knitty, Fall 2004.

Third Time’s A Charm!

If you think waaaaay back, you might remember a few issues I had while trying to make some felted slippers for myself. Of course, these were not just your garden variety felted slippers.  No, I had to make it harder than that.  My goal was to replicate my dearly beloved, but quite elderly, pink furry bunny slippers:  Hip and Hop. I had…
