My entire life i have been creative. I flittered from different styles of art and music to crafting. My mother was crafty as i grew up and taught me many different craft projects, from crocheting to beading to cross stitch. I didnt learn much beyond the basic stitches until pregnant with my third son. I picked up looming and was hooked on yarn. With looming i felt limited, eventually i went back to crochet. And realized i had been doing it wrong all along! I learned the basic stitches, then went for the advanced stitches and within a year i was easily working through expert level patterns.
I prefer to add fun stitches in odd places to make a pattern fun. I like them to be hearty thick and warm for the winters up here in Alaska. I like my kids items to be classical with a touch of something new.
I have four boys, while i love designing things for girls and am very feminine myself. Ive found a distinct lack of cute boy things. I love coming up with fun things for my boys. Its getting those things into patterns that is hard!
I hope you enjoy my designs. Im just starting getting them all to paper. I know i love writing them!
I love ruffle yarn. Its so much fun and creates the neatest fabric when moving. I dont however enjoy the scarves made from it. Its just not my style. When I was trying to create a fun pant based on a antique coke crate, I came up with the idea to put rows of ruffles on top of lacy pants. Dancing with the stars may or may not have been playing in the background. Hey a girl gets her inspiration everywhere! These lacy shell pants are wonderfully stretchy, flirty and fun. They remind me of salsa pants or lacy pants that someone would be wearing in a spicy Latin dance!
