We ate a lot of great food in Japan. Obviously, I didn’t photograph every meal that we ate because: A. I get really sick of people posting photos of all their meals and B. I was too busy eating them! So, here are some highlights of the food we had in Japan. There were lots of other great things, too! We flew to Japan on Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving feast included a cup of ice cream and a sandwich. I have … Read More
I’ve been making progress on my gloves! I just haven’t been blogging about them… Here are a few photos of my progress. Join the fun in the Mari Knits Ravelry group and share your progress!
When I re-learned how to knit as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Armenia I would go to the seedy smoke filled internet cafes a few times a week. I would spend half of my time catching up on emails, and the other half looking at knitting patterns and saving them to my flash drive. One of my favorite sources–Knitty. Fast forward a few years to when I started designing–I couldn’t imagine ever having my patterns published, seeing my name in … Read More

However I’ve been much more consistent about posting photos to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, so you can always follow me there!

Presenting to you, finally: Two Hands Make A Star This pattern is the final pattern in … Read More

I’m not one of those people who can always look ‘just so’ and thus I need accessories that are flexible. Shawls don’t have to abide by this rule because usually I wear them like kerchiefs, and those tend to stay put a little better. So … Read More
A lot of really exciting things have happened recently. Back at the end of June when I was at TNNA I walked by the Interweave booth, and saw a little poster for the new Unofficial Harry Potter Knits magazine. I did a double take, and realized that it was MY sweater on the cover. I think I shrieked in excitement! Last week I got a PDF copy of the magazine, and let me tell you, it’s full of beautiful patterns! … Read More
I am publishing a new pattern today! I knit these gloves when I came back from Germany in March, or maybe it was April? After that they sort of sat around for a while, because it seemed silly to publish a glove pattern in the summer. Who wants to knit gloves in the peak of the heat? Although it’s not exactly fall here (it’s still very hot and humid) I am dreaming of fall, and there’s nothing like knitting fall … Read More
