And sometimes she Crochets.

Recently, I came across some notes that I had made while designing some crochet neck warmers. I have been busy deciphering and "Proof Crocheting" what I have begun to call my "Lost Notes of 2009" Collection.
Here is the first offering.


For your knitting pleasure, I give you Uniquely Ali.

NEWS FLASH! Busy knitter posts more patterns!

I have been busy these past few weeks designing up a storm and starting to teach classes at The Scarlet Skein! I have also found some notes for items that I created over a year ago. I am currently in the process of deciphering exactly what I wrote and re-knitting or re-crocheting all of them, so I can attempt to write coherent patterns. Amazing how those scribbles were perfectly clear patterns when I jotted them down and now they seem to have been written by a five year old on Jolt Cola and Pixie Stix! More patterns as they are decoded.
Have fun going where your needles, hooks and yarn take you.
Click on the names, or the pictures of the patterns to purchase.
Very easy, very quick and gender neutral. Make it masculine or feminine just by changing the color or the buttons. You can make two from one skein Punta del Este "Merisoft" yarn.
Perfect for holiday gift giving.

Everyone deserves a bit of luxury. Spoil yourself with silk, mohair, lace and beads.
