strawberry jumper

Antea has been getting a lot of compliments on this jumper and I wrote down the pattern as some people have asked about it. I used Knit Picks Gloss DK in Scarlet that my dear friend Margarida gave me.

Beautiful local alpaca yarn. I wrote up the pattern as best as I could here.

pompom hat



Autumn Upstate New York always surprises me. I just want to knit all the time. Even Antea's Halloween costume was knitted - a big bad wolf tail and ears. Bobby Rabbit got dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood.

the girl in her summer hats



Two hats I made for Antea this Summer - both with fabric from Sew Green. I have uploaded the template and instructions here.
The blue fabric had me discover the beauty of wax fabrics - especially the outstanding designs of Vlisco.
Oh - and Antea has learned how to say "hat" (except she says "hatti").

to catch her dreams

Dreamcatcher I made for Antea with thread and ribbon from Sew Green, three feathers we caught in the backyard and this intriguing pebble we found in Cayuga Lake that had a hole though it.
