Just a quick update on things to come: I’ve been busy baking all day, perfecting and refining my Floral Cookies. They’re pretty little things that taste of orange zest and look like Springtime. They’ll be even prettier when there are more edible flowers to be had. They will be the featured recipe for my latest pattern, Beryl Berry – a Child’s Sweater. Knit seamlessly, from … Continue reading Testing, 1, 2, 3…
Preparations are underway for the Swiss Yarn Festival, at the end of this month! I’ve been busy dyeing up yarn, winding skeins, and trying to figure out how to display everything! A couple things of note: I’ve put my Etsy shop on “vacation” until after the festival. I’ll reopen once again after I’m back, at the beginning of March. Hopefully, I will be able to … Continue reading Swiss Yarn Festival 2020…and Meat

This year looks to be even … Continue reading Sweater Sets!

Growing up, my mother always claimed we had a separate stomach just for desserts. No matter how full you were, there was always room for a little bite of sweetness to end a special meal. Sweets were a luxury for me, as I was only ever allowed a dessert when we went out for dinner or at a party. I always looked forward to going … Continue reading Introducing Dolce
Meze are small dishes, or appetizers, served in parts of the Middle East, the Balkans, Greece and North Africa. Gathering around a table filled with little dishes on a hot evening with friends is one of summer’s great pleasures – especially after a long day of work. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Turkey twice – once as a tourist, and the other time as … Continue reading Introducing Meze – Sport Weight
