  • BOOK REVIEW: Comfort & Joy

    My dear knitting friend, Melynda has recently published her first knitting book, Comfort & Joy and today I'm honored to be part of her blog/book tour! Before I get into how wonderful this book is, I'd like to take a little trip down memory-lane… Melynda and I randomly met in 2010 online via Ravelry. She commented on a cute little boy sweater I had just finished (Tweezie) and that is all it took! That comment sparked a virtual conversation and we quickly realized that we lived just a couple of hours away from each other! Days after we met online we were already meeting in person and carpooling to Detroit to meet The Yarn...

  • BOOK REVIEW: Grown

    I’m honored to be one of the stops on the ‘Grown’ blog tour! Grown is the newest book self-published my friend and fellow knitwear designer, Kate Oates. The talented Kate is very well known for her line of knitting patterns for children for Tot Toppers. Kate has had such success with her line of children designs that she decided to take 10 of her well-known and loved children’s patterns and transform them into adult versions. What a brilliant idea, right?! With that came the birth of Grown… Grown is a refined collection that features raglan-style sweater designs with very little finishing and sewing....

  • NEW PATTERNS: Day Trip & Two Track

    Field Trip, A 2016 Plucky Knitter Collection, just released yesterday and I'm so honored to be part of the beautiful collaboration! For this collection I designed two garments that I'm extremely proud of and I hope they find their way to your needles ;) Meet Two Track.

  • BOOK REVIEW: Henry's Hat

    My little guy has a new favorite book (and so do I)… it's Henry's Hat! And it's not just my youngest (2) that loves this book, my older two boys (4 & 6) do as well.
