Baby's Grandpa Cardigan in Tunisian


In searching for clothing patterns for my little boy, I was very disappointed with the options. Nothing matched the style of what I want for my little boy. So, since I'm having an autumn baby, I set out to make a cute little cardigan for him!

Retro Baby Dots Blanket


I have some great news! I am pregnant with my first child!
Since I now have an excuse to make all the baby things, you will find a few new patterns for baby-related projects. Of course, one of the first things I had to tackle was the perfect baby blanket. So, I set out to make a simple rainbow-inspired pattern that would look elegant for either a boy or a girl.

Summer Fans Blanket


Last year, my husband requested a lightweight blanket for the bed during Southern California's hot summer nights.

After perusing my Pinterest feed for inspiration, I came up with the idea of making individual lace panels inspired by Art Deco fan motifs.

Quarter Sunflower Pincushion


My husband has been irritated with me leaving pins about when I block projects, so I created this little sunflower pin cushion! It was inspired by the pillow I made for my sister.

I used fingering-weight cotton yarn and a 2mm hook. The finished size is 3.5 inches square.

If you use a larger 5.5mm hook and worsted weight yarn, it would be perfect for a small throw pillow!
