Deb Buckingham is a full-time knitting pattern designer and author of "Dishcloth Diva," released by Cooperative Press in 2012, and "Dishcloth Diva Knits On" in 2013. She creates patterns that are modern and chic in design, but allows room for even the novice knitter to gain confidence in knitting. Advanced knitters will love the simple, and sometimes challenging designs.
She has also been published in the 2013 and 2014 Knitting Calendar released by Simon and Schuster. Her work can also be found and purchased on KnitPicks.com and Ravelry.com where she works as a designer. Her website on Etsy drives consistent traffic to her creations.
She is a member with TKGA (the knitting guild of America) and blogs at theartfulyarn.blogspot.com.
A mother, wife, grandma, sister, friend, writer, photographer, knitter, quilter, but most of all a yarn-a-holic, she enjoys alot.
You will often find me nestled in my favorite chair, in front of my favorite TV design show, working on my next favorite project.

There is nothing more cozy than a textured blanket to keep your wee one warm in the stroller or snuggling next to you.
This baby afghan has a balanced and serene look to it. The clean textures are created with only knit and purl stitches, and the pattern is easy to memorize. I used an Aran weight yarn held single.
Natural looking designs are not only fun to knit, they create endless textures that leave you staring at it long after it's finished.
