Here are some cute ruffle socks I made. They are made with lace weight yarn and knit from the top down. The ruffle pattern in knit in reverse so the pattern appears when you fold the cuff down. You can buy the knitting pattern over at Ravelry.

Since my first encounter with knit slippers a few months ago, I have had them in the back of my mind.

The pattern I made the slippers from was good, but it was essentially a rectangle that needed to be seamed to fit a foot. I knew there was a better way, so the other day while watching TV I whipped up a pair of these cute ballet house flats.

These have a turned heel and the only seaming that takes place is the kitchener stitch at the front. The best part? They take no time at all!

I have a new pattern up for sale! KnitPicks liked my Sweet Mock Pleat Skirt so much they asked me to make a version using their lovely Suri Dream Yarn.

Just like the Sweet Mock Pleat Skirt, this patten is made to be adaptable to *any size* and you can get the pattern from KnitPicks here for only $1.99! You can also find the pattern on Ravelry. Happy knitting!

So welcome to this knitting blog I have started.  I have been knitting for years and finally am getting around to posting patterns I have developed over the years (and continuing to do so!).

First up, is this Mock Pleat Skirt (modeled here by my friend Michelle).

It was knit in a Peruvian mohair but any lace/fingering weight should work. Most of the piece is double-ply with the remaining bits being single-ply.

It is a great pattern because the way it is made makes it adaptable for any size or length. It is also really fun to make and even more so to wear!

You can buy the pattern here on Ravelry or here on Etsy.

Happy knitting!
