I have been knitting since I was about 8 years old. My mother taught me to knit and my parents encouraged me to explore all kinds of arts & crafts activities by providing me with the materials that I needed to create.
As a girl, I loved to sew (I spent hours using my mother’s sewing machine making clothes for my dolls), knit, draw and paint. In high school I spent all my extra time at school hanging out in the art room. In college I worked at a cute little yarn store and I still have some yarn in my stash that I bought at that store…way too many years ago!
I love giving hand knit gifts to my friends and family. In these days of mass produced gifts (that often require a plug-in cord or battery) it is nice to give something that is truly one-of-a-kind. I love to see the smile on their faces when they open the gift I made for them.
I enjoy knitting (of course!), teaching my daughter to sew, going to my son’s sporting events, baking, making jam in the summer, making homemade gingerbread houses in December, and going to the beach.
I hope that you enjoy using my patterns to create special heirloom quality items for your home, friends & family.
The "Step in Time" Pillow knitting pattern is quick and easy to knit!
If you are a fan of the movie Mary Poppins you have probably guessed the inspiration for the name of this pattern. One of my favorite scenes is Dick Van Dyke (Bert) dancing with the other chimney sweeps on the roof top to the song "Step in Time".
I love how this stitch pattern looks on the pillow...evenly spaced steps...step in time.
This pillow is knit with super bulky weight yarn and big needles. You'll be done with this pillow so fast you'll want to make more than one!
