"Glitzy Gift Bag" for Circle Knitting Loom - FREE!

Make a small gift more memorable with this "glitzy" knitted & felted bag!

I designed this project for loom knitting, using my trusty blue Knifty Knitter ... it's a quick & easy stash-buster, and looks really special when you're done!


I originally wrote this pattern for LoomKnittersCircle, a great resource for loom-knitters.


"Better Catnip Mouse" Knitting Pattern - FREE!

I wanted to build a better catnip mouse toy, one that would be easy & quick to make, tantalizing to my cats, but that wouldn't fall apart or leak catnip & stuffing all over the house ... and this is my result.

Combining odds & ends of scrap yarn -- less than 2 yards of wool & furry novelty yarn -- it's felted for fun & sturdiness! Plus, it's a great use for recycled felting gauge swatches.

"Belize Baby Blanket" Knitting Pattern - FREE!

The challenge: design a knitted baby blanket for a tropical climate!

To knit a baby blanket for my newborn niece, I had to find a yarn that was easy-care washable and dryable, of course, but also lightweight enough for the climate in Corozal, Belize, which is usually warm and always humid ... and believe it or not, cotton isn't the answer.
