Dashing Through The Snow Socks

These socks were created with a beautiful self-striping yarn that blends all the blues of a cold winter. Inspired by the movement of snow as it falls to the ground and gets plowed neatly along the sides of the streets, this pattern captures what you might see during a long walk during this chilly season.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Shawl

This is a sideways shawl that was inspired by the many facets of the sugar plum fairy, from her intricate costume of glittering appliques, to her tiara, to the shape of her tutu. A thin, slender crescent shawl with a garter body and a decorative open lace stitch pattern forms a delicate plum blossom panel amongst an airy, whimsical openwork border.

Cranberry Harvest Socks

The shade of ripened cranberries just before their fall harvest inspired the deep color of these socks. Not only does the yarn have just the right pop of fall flair, the distinctive stitch pattern will make you glad to kick off those shoes and show off your cozy style.

Flipping Your Fins Shawl

This is a bottom up crescent shawl that was inspired by the arrival of June. The vibrant tonal coloring of this hand-dyed yarn from the swatch reminds us of the many blues and greens one appreciates while watching the waves in the summer evenings. The size and shape of the shawl lends itself to be worn either traditionally or draped in a number of ways around the neck.
