I have started my Etsy shop up! Take a look....

My patterns will be sold there, in addition to Ravelry, and I will also carry upcycled and hand dyed yarns! I am so excited!

Sweater progress

I am currently knitting my very first sweater, and I thought I would share my progress!

Every non-knitter I tell about my love affair with knitting says "Do you knit sweaters?" or "Knit me a sweater!" or "Doesn't it take forever to knit a sweater?"  As frustrated as I am with stereotypes, I figured it was about time I gave it a go.

So here she is... a peek of my Paulie, so far....

I know, an adventurous first sweater since its in fingering weight yarn, but I love working with smaller yarns, so I didn't think it would be too oppressive. This is Malabrigo "Arbol" and Ella Rae Merino Lace. 

Have you ever knitted a sweater? :)

Introducing Debra!

Debra is knit flat and seamed as you go. Unique construction, excuse to use a flashy button, perfect use for handspun... what's not to love?

Debra can be your wallet, your trinket carrier, your cosmetic bag... who couldn't use another bag?

from Ravelry! You do not have to be a Ravelry user, but if you are not, I definitely recommend signing up. :)
