Lucy Vest Pattern 2

September 25

Lucy Vest at Marke

The Lucy Vest pattern is now available from Knit Picks! This version uses Swish DK. It’s shown here in the Peapod, and there are over 30 other colors to choose from as well.

The vest is graced with an easy-to-memorize eyelet ribbing, with the V-neck shaping flowing from the center rib.

Attention to detail includes instructions for decreases in the neck and armhole ribbing so they curve properly and lie flat.

The pattern is available from Knit Pick here. I love their “kit builder” which makes ordering the pattern and just the right amount of yarn a snap!

Forest Weave Top

May 15

I recently finished this top, Forest Weave by Yumiko Alexander. The yarn in Schulana Kilino, a worsted linen/cotton blend.

I enjoyed the clever design, with its big cables separated by dropped stitches. And I’m so proud of myself, for once completing a summer top in time for summer!

Stitches Stitching, the Cardigan

February 8

I’ve joined the tradition of knitting a project for Stitches. With Stitches West just around the corner, I put the finishing touches on my second Tangled Yoke Cardigan, this time in a mossy color.

I still take delight in Eunny Jang’s ingenious cabling around the cardi’s yoke. If I wasn’t worried about appearing obsessed, I’d make a third of theses sweaters in a straw color. Or maybe red. Or grey. Or… oh dear, how many colors does Rowan Felted Tweed  yarn come in?

Knit Picks Pattern

April 8

I’m excited and grateful to be part of Knit Pick’s Independent Designer Program! The Knit Picks version of my Smock Top Sweater uses their beautiful Merino Style yarn. I’m crazy for the Kenai color seen here:


I have a Japanese Maple that leafs out red in the spring. Doesn’t it look like fall?

I appreciate Knit Pick’s including me in their Independent Designers Program. You can read more about it and see other patterns here.

Many thanks to Susan Claudino for doing an awesome job knitting the sample for the Knit Picks Smock Top Sweater! She’s a talented knitter, and you can admire her work on her NoKnitSherlock Ravelry page.

For anybody who’d like a refresher on how to knit smocking, I’ll remind you I’ve posted a YouTube video that demonstrates the technique.
