Sampler Pillow

Wow I am so excited to share this with you all! I just completed this pattern and have converted it to pdf so it is avalible in my etsy store @ Http://
It is a great pattern for those of you that are a bit more than a beginner knitter. Its primarily for Intermediate to Advanced level, but don't be discouraged because some of my new students who only started last fall attempted this one and with much success. So check it out when you get a chance and please let me know if you have any questions at all. Happy Knitting! Abby

Neck Warmer Pattern

Yeah, the pattern is ready! I have this pattern for sale in my etsy store now for $3. When it is purchased you will be able to receive this by email. If you purchase any of my recycled yarns in my store you will receive this pattern for free as an extra thank you.

This is a pattern designed for the beginner in mind. You have to know or learn how to cast on stitches, knit stitches and know how to bind off.

Creating Designs

Creating a design is so much fun. The technical part, not so much fun. Looking into and doing research about copyright laws and how to get one for my designs, and so on and so forth. It takes so much longer to go through the process. I am sure that it will be worth it in the end though. Here is a design that I came up with and have not yet converted it to a PDF file. I hope you like the preview. Leave a comment for me if you do. It's a Neck Warmer. Simple and sweet I made this one from some hand spun alpaca fiber and mixed it up with some really nice unraveled yarn from a sweater which I believe contained angora and Merino. Hope you like!
