March 2017 - My new site is now up and functioning. I can blog, share my thoughts and photographs, and sell my patterns! So much happening in my life and all is creative and forward moving! Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Sept 2015 - I haven't updated this in a while! Still knitting, always knitting, I still teach and work at Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns. I also have designed for Vogue Knitting, Koigu Magazine, Zealana, Jimmie Beans, and Malabrigo, As of the beginning of 2015 I also became creative director of the Buffalo Wool Co., a new job that just flows along with what I already do. I am a knitting teacher and knitwear designer. I work full time in my LYS, Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns. I recently was 1st runner up in a Vogue Knitting Design Competition called the Magic of Mohair. My design was featured in the Early Fall 2011 Vogue Knitting. I will have another design in the Vogue Knitting Winter 2011 edition. I have recently purchased a Canon Rebel Camera and have started taking way too many pictures. I love this site for sharing my thoughts and pictures. Life is good!

  5. Congratulations! It’s a gorgeous design, and it’s lovely to know that a wider world is going to know about your talents, beyond those of us happy to have you right there in our favourite LYS. Can’t wait to buy my copy of Vogue Knitting and get you to autograph it.

    I saw this beautiful kimono at the Vogue Knitting Expo a nd I’d love to make it, although I’m not sure that I’d be able to paint those beautiful roses. Is the pattern available for purchase?

    • Thank-you so much for the comments and I am glad that you like the garment! You will be able to make the wrap and the roses are simply swirls of colour – giving the impression of the roses!

      The Victorian Falls Wrap and Sheath are going to be published in a future issue of Vogue Knitting, most likely this fall. It was 1st runner up in the Magic of Mohair Design Competition!

      Happy Knitting

        Thank you for this good news. I think the piece is wonderful and I’m glad you placed as well as you did. Frankly, if I had been a judge it would have come in first. I’ll be looking for the Vogue issue with the instructions. In the meantime, I’m starting my hunt for some luscious mohair. How much did you use, i.e., how much should I buy when I find some appropriate yarn.

      • Hi Operagail!

        Thank-you for the judgement! I was very happy with the placement though – publishing was my goal!

        If you are looking for yarn I used Undyed Maidenhair by Handmaiden for the lace edgings – you would need 850 yds if you were to knit both peices. I think that Art Yarns Silk Rhapsody is comparable, but I would have to check yardage/weight. The stockinet body was knit with Fleece Artist Montague, 70 mohair, 30 silk, also undyed, a new yarn that they are looking at – you would need 1400 yds. Subsitutes could be Fleece Artist Baby Kid, I thought about Rowans’ Kid Silk Aura, but it might be a bit heavy, Classic Elite’s Giselle looks promising as well.

        Hope that this helps
        Happy Hunting
