Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
A while back I asked a group of ladies here what kind a pattern they would like to see. The first response was from knilesknitter, and she said she would love a shrug that covered her breasts and stayed there. She loves the circle shrugs, but hates when they don't actually close. This pattern is my answer to her problem. I have worked hard at being sure it will cover you up, whatever size you are!
Always feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and I will get back to you ASAP. You can also visit me at my Jessie At Home Facebook page, or chat with other yarn minded folk in this Facebook group.
