I specialize in small projects with big visual impact. Spicing up the traditional with interesting juxtapositions of texture, gauge, shape and/or color. Completing something amazing looking with nothing but your own two hands, yarn and sticks is so exciting and rewarding. Share the excitement - show off your projects from my designs by linking FO and in progress pics to the pattern page. Whether it’s straight from the directions or heavily modified, I love to see them! Questions? Contact me via email
