We're all about well documented patterns


 Our mission is to provide well written patterns that are easy to follow and will not leave you frustrated. You will find lovely Designs that will showcase your yarn that are a pleasure to knit. The hat above is the Bring on the dots hat. the picture to the left is my swatch in the round for the hat.

I live in an area where we have all four seasons. This means that I have lots of time and opportunity for knitting. I have a degree in teaching and in anthropology. I was taught to knit by my Mother when I was a young girl of about ten. Fortunately, I took to knitting fairly easily and have been knitting ever since then. My designs are full of texture without being difficult. I try very hard to provide complete instructions. Many of my designs are inspired by my travels. My patterns are all test knit by volunteers on Ravelry.


I am currently designing mosaic hats, cowls, scarfs and shawls. I have designed some easy to knit shawls that are very versatile. I have traveled to some workshops around the country to keep current on designing. I volunteer to teach knitting at the Edward King House Senior Center in Newport, RI.


When I am not knitting or designing, I try to keep current on website design. I love to cook and do a bit of gardening. I have started to bake bread including sourdough and French bread. I do manage to get some exercise in every week. I love to walk by the ocean.
