To critique patterns

I have wanted to talk about how to recognize a bad pattern from a good picture and then I stumbled across the Samurai Knitter's pages. Funny and informative. I don't need to do it when she does it so smartly.

Port Townsend Snowman

I would pick up my hat.....
if I could just reach my arm.

Mrs. Claus Mitts

Mrs. Claus Mitts are hot off the press and my latest design. 100% wool and mohair, they are super cute, but I'm going to make another pair out of alpaca to test the pattern and publish here. So check back if you are interested.
This particular pair will be heading to the Indie Banditas Bazaar arts and crafts fair where I will be selling them.

Forest Knitting Walk

Finished another pair of beachcombers. The great thing about this pattern is the wrist tapers in so it is feminine and flattering, I also like that you can use handspun yarn. The forest is beautiful today.

Queen of Hearts handwarmers

This is my latest design of handwarmers. It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland so I named them Queen of Hearts. I'll bring them to the Indie Banditas Bazaar arts and crafts fair to sell. The pattern isn't one I intend to write up, so if you are interested let me know and I will and send it to you.
