Candyspun Knitted Shawl Pattern

candyspun knitted shawl pattern
I was sitting at our dining room table exhausted, my head in my hands.

Another week had rolled around. And I needed to design another pattern for the shop.

Let me start by saying… I love pattern designing. It’s a very rewarding creative outlet for me. LOVE it.

But.

There comes a time in every business owner’s life when you realize… you can’t do it all. LOL! What?!

So I reached out on Facebook for pattern designers wanting to collaborate.

And sweet goodness, replies came in! Glorious!

One of the designers had been test […]

How to Finger Crochet a Scarf – for Beginners

This is sooo darn easy. You’ll be amazed.

Even if you don’t know how to crochet at all, you can make this scarf in one sitting.

This would be an ideal last-minute gift!

You’ll need:

Cabled Coffee Lovers Knitted Cowl Pattern

“Can we GO yet?”

Every time we’d go out to eat, my parents would inevitably sit and sip their coffee for ages afterward.

They were both avid coffee drinkers. I, at the young age of 10, just didn’t get it. Ewww. It was bitter and nasty!

A morning didn’t go by without the pot brewing, filling the house with that delicious smell. Funny how coffee smells good even to those who hate the taste.

I don’t remember how I started drinking coffee as an adult. But once I discovered you could put milk into it and it turned into a miraculously tasty treat, I was […]

A Lovely Knitted Wrap Indeed

Years ago, when I was first learning to knit, I made this lovely wrap for my mom.

It’s a simple and elegant knitting pattern and wonderful as a Mother’s Day gift.

It was easy and comforting to make and it just flowed from my fingers.

I was in a distraught/hopeless/self-loathing/regretful rough patch of my life emotionally and every stitch was just a tiny, soothing act of love.

She adored it, of course.

I’ve long forgotten the yarn I used. It was pre-Expression Fiber Arts days so isn’t any of my mine but was a soft and lumpy bumpy pink, green, white hand-dyed wool. Lovely stuff.
