Finial Drop Christmas Ornament


This year, I have a little toddler running around for Christmas. That means I can't have my normal glass ornaments on the christmas tree.

So, instead, I have designed this series of crocheted christmas ornaments to decorate the bottom half of our tree. Since they're yarn and stuffing, it won't matter if he pulls them off the tree or tries to play with them. Win-win for all!

Falling Leaves Cardigan


I have been wanting to make myself a sweater for some time now. I love cardigans, but most of the ones I own are fairly plain and a little boring. So I set out to make a cardigan that I would be happy to wear. This sweater uses my embedded pineapple motif to give detail to the bottom half while keeping the top relatively simple so it can be worn with just about anything.

Axolotl


A couple of years ago, I was chatting with some friends asking them what to make for another friend who was having a baby. Pernille suggested making an axolotl stuffed animal. Not knowing what they were, I had to look up pictures of the cute pink salamander. While I thought they were cute, it wasn't quite right for that friend. Fast forward to this summer when I found out Pernille was having her own baby, I knew just what to make for her: an axolotl!

Pernille's Square


A friend of mine recently had a little baby girl, so of course, I wanted to make a blanket for her.
I designed this blanket as a heirloom-style lace square with a simple border that joins the squares while not detracting from the shape of each square.
