Knitting

Knitting is one of the things I do to relax. I find the motion soothing, and I enjoy the feel and colors of the yarn as it passes through my fingers. I like patterns that are regular but a little bit challenging. I tend to design patterns for things I can’t find in stores, like sweater vests using lace patterns.

One of my favorite challenges was how to make a mock cable pattern so that it would have cables on both sides for a scarf. I created two patterns, one for a flat scarf (Kittie’s Request) and one for a circular scarf (Sarah’s Circle). Both patterns are available for free downloads on the knitting website ravelry.com.
