I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
Two patterns in one set: socks and fingerless gloves!
I am always drawn to the wonderful ways water flowsin this case with force, straight up. The lace stitch on the foot and back of hand for these pieces has plenty of movement and style, but is remarkably simple to work.
The socks are worked from the toe up, starting with a figure-8 cast on. The lace panel is worked over the top of the foot, with stockinette stitch on the sole. A gusset and short-row heel cup form the heel. The lace panel is repeated on the back of the leg and continues from the foot up the front.
The mitts have the lace on the back of the hand only, with a thumb gusset accented by yarnovers for an extra touch of femininity.
