Speaking of Angelus

I'm working on a second one as we speak (ok, full disclosure, not exactly right this moment because I'm typing, and I can't yet type and knit - when I gain that skill WATCH OUT INTERNET I'm never leaving again) to use this weekend as a Knit City shop sample. Will I be done in time? Tune in next week to find out!

Perfection is an easy knit, a sleeping puppy, and autumn sunshine.





New Pattern: Angelus

I am so excited to finally have my Angelus shawl pattern available for purchase! It's a labour of love - for gorgeous hand dyed yarn, for structural design elements and cables, and for cozy fall accessories! I designed it because I had two beautiful skeins of Malabrigo Arroyo that needed to be something special, and I wanted a crescent shawl big enough to wrap around my wide shoulders.

You can find more details and buy a copy

in my shop

, or on Ravelry!



A New Knitting Pattern: the Pevensie Coat for Girls ages 2 - 8

I'm so excited to show you all my newest design - an adorable girls coat meant to be knitted in a cozy bulky weight yarn. It's perfect for keeping your little girl warm through fall and winter, and the sweet vintage style and oversized details look fantastic. I've named it Pevensie, after the children who travel to the wintry land of Narnia in

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

by C. S. Lewis in their oversized fur coats.

It's available in my shop, or as a Ravelry download!

For the last few days of September, remember that 50% of all my pattern sales, including this one, will be going to Doctors Without Borders

You want the pictures right? I am so on that.

More pics after the jump!



Knitting Patterns for Famine Relief

Hi Knitters!

One of my favourite Ravelry groups is tallying members' donations towards famine relief right now. We'll be doing a raffle and everything. I think you'd have to live under a very comfortable, privileged rock these days to be unaware of the horrific suffering and death caused by the Horn of Africa droughts. Violence continues to escalate as Somalian refugees flee their homes and farms, travelling for days in search of food. Livelihoods are lost, possibly forever. Children are dying of hunger. It's something I can't even fathom, having never been faced with famine. There was one short time in my easy life when money and work was short and food was a little scarce and unvaried, but I wasn't ever in any danger. Ever. And now, even though I live like a queen compared to these refugees, these


who are dying for lack of something I've never had to go without

, I don't have enough money to save them.

Because even a little bit helps, I'm going to be donating half of my pattern sales to

Doctors Without Borders

for the rest of the month. It's not much, but it's what I can do right now. Please, if you have $3.50 and you've been looking for your next knitting project, consider making it one of mine. If you have $3.50 but you don't need a new pattern, please just ignore me, haul ass to the

Doctors without Borders

site, and donate it all. I know we can't save the world with such little donations, but maybe we can ease the pressure a tiny bit.

My Rav group, LSG, has raised over $500 in the past 5 days. I'll be adding my bit to that at the end of September.

So here are my patterns, found in my

Ravelry pattern store

, and keep an eye out for any new patterns, which will also be included.

 The Stella Cowl - 2 versions of this modern, cozy winter accessory, knit in the round using basic stranded colourwork.

The King's College Cowl - lacy, beaded, and beautiful. My most popular pattern!

Birdie - A cute little jumper in 5 sizes for girls 2 - 6 years old. It's a fun knit, with adorable results!

Thanks for reading, and for giving even a little bit.



Knitting Pattern Release: The Birdie Jumper

I am so pleased to have finished this pattern in time to take it to Fibrations on Sunday. This little jumper is too cute, and Rei had a fantastic time wearing it for her photo shoot. It's called Birdie, mostly because the lace pattern reminds me of feathers, but also because I think it's the word Rei says more often than any other. She loves pointing to birds and calling "Quack, quack, quack!" to them.

It's available through


, and my

Artfire store


Ok, one more picture. It's a little fuzzy, but soooo cute.
