New pattern sneak peek…

Hello there!

Here’s a little sneak peek of the new project I’m working on for PaintBox yarns available over at


I’m using the Aran weight yarn and it’s just wonderful to work with.

The pattern won’t be launching until mid to late August, so I’ll be sharing some more sneaks before then, so stay tuned!

It’s raining here today, so a perfect day to knit!  I hope you get to fit some knitting in today too! 😀


Back Porch Shawl pattern…

Hello everyone!

I’ve completed my second “Back Porch Shawl” and have written the pattern.  This one is much longer than my first so there’s more to wrap around you to keep the chill off.

I used the super soft and cushy Main Street Yarns available over at I used Dark Grey, Tweed Grey and Off White.


AND, it’s now available for FREE here on my website.

Happy knitting!


Working away…

Hello there!

I’m still working away re-making some of my patterns.  It’s been fun to make some of my oldest patterns again!  🙂


I still have a few more to do, and then I’m going to photograph them and update the patterns.

It’s a slow going project, but I’m not in a hurry!

Happy knitting!


Main Street Yarns…

Good afternoon!

One of the many things I love about being a designer over at is, every once in a while, I get to try out new yarns!

These samples of Main Street Yarns “Shiny & Soft” just arrived last week in the mail.


It’s seriously some of the softest yarn I’ve ever felt!! It’s just lovely!

I was generously sent 3 balls of yarn (at a whopping 365 yards per ball!), so I’ve decided to make myself a second Back Porch Shawl. 🙂

In my last post, I mentioned I wanted to make another one, but a little longer, and I’ll have enough of the Main Street yarn to do just that.

And because I’ve had such a great response to my original Back Porch Shawl (thank you so very much 😀 ), I will be creating a PDF pattern for the Back Porch Shawl that will be available for FREE!

So off I go to get this shawl finished and the pattern written!

Happy knitting!
