Black Bear and Kitty Chase

i walked outside and when I turned the corner, I saw a very large black bear. I ran in the house and grabbed my phone. I was so surprised at how curious the bear was and how brave my one year old cat was. She just kept “stalking” and running after  

 the bear. It was awesome but I’m not sure I’ll go outside alone again for a while!!


Engagement Photos

My daughter Kelly is marrying the love of her life next May. Her engagement photos turned out beautiful!!! 


New Knit Blanket Design

Loving this new knit blanket pattern I wrote. It’s called Autumn Stripes and it’s available here. 




New pattern in the shop Cuddle Me Knits  for my doorknob hanging basket.  The handle is a boondoggle stitch. I just love that word, boondoggle.

I have two of these baskets at home and they are so useful. The one hanging on the front door holds the keys.


New Pattern Design

ive been working on a new shawl design in a knit moss stitch. I hope to be offering it in many sizes. 



Sarah is in Maui!!!

so happy my daughter gets to spend some time in Maui with her father. It’s been the longest winter ever here in Vermont and Sarah needs some sun and surf. She made friends with a sea turtle her second day on the island. 



That Hat

This wide- ribbed slouchy hat pattern has been a big hit.  My friend’s daughter was kind enough to model it and she was a super star!! Find the pattern here. 



Crochet Doorknob Basket Pattern

Yup- I wrote a new pattern for a crocheted doorknob basket with a hemp handle. These little guys are so handy and the tree bark button adds a nice rustic, log cabin feel. Get the pattern Here.
