My new scarves – available here:
ModernNeedlepoint on Etsy
I was weaving a blue and cream striped scarf the other day and I liked how the little horizontal blue weft lines crossed over the cream warp threads and it reminded me of lovely birch trees. So here is my first version of a silver birch tree scarf, this one in gorgeous fall colors. This pattern woven wider would make a great table runner and after watching PBS’s Craft in America Episode V111 last night all about threads, I may have to start cutting up my weaving to make into little art quilts.
The finished scarf is available in my Etsy shop here!
As usual I am testing the limits of my threads to see how fine of a weave I can achieve on my 12 dent heddle. I wish they made finer heddles for rigid heddle looms, at least a 14 dent. I should have doubled up the warp threads on this one, you can see little spaces between the warp and weft and the weft likes to slide a bit since the weave is not balanced. Nevertheless, a good test of what I can get away with!
I am loving weaving on my Kromski Harp rigid heddle loom. This is a variant of a houndstooth pattern worked in Valley Yarns 8/2 tencel and 10/2 bamboo, one strand each (2 total) for the warp and weft on a 12 dent heddle.
It is a simple pattern, black in the first 2 slots and holes, green in the next two slots and holes for the warp, then 4 throws of black, then 4 throws green.
I am using one strand of black of both the Valley Yarn 8/2 tencel and 10/2 bamboo and one strand of Lemongrass 10/2 bamboo and one strand Olive 8/2 tencel. Using the two different shades of green gives it a nice depth.
My latest crochet pattern! I love my kindle fire and needed a soft and squishy cover to protect it when I am not using it. I chose to create a cable pattern since the cabling adds an extra layer of padding as compared to normal flat crochet or knit.
You can purchase the pattern in many places:
If you like crochet cables, I highly recommend this book of patterns, very affordable and tons of patterns to learn:
For all of you Spring brides! Available in my Etsy shop here.
I first made this cute little crochet Easter bonnet about 4 years ago. I was messing around making hats and made this one without writing my pattern down. I also used a pansy flower design that was not my own. So, fast forward to 2012 and I finally have created the pattern using my original pansy flower design!
You can purchase this pattern several places:
The interlocking crochet technique opens up a huge range of possibilities. The double-sided patterns are such a bonus, especially when working on blankets and scarves.
Here is a colorway that I have used in a baby blanket for our little friend Sebastian. This is a sample of the same colorway but with a different pattern.
This book has a great set of patterns and teaches the basics of interlocking crochet.
Interlocking crochet is pretty basic once you get the hang of it. You create 2 separate rows of double crochet filet, then each row is worked with a separate color through the mesh of the other color. Now, when I first bought this book, I actually threw it across the room because I could not figure out the stitches. I HIGHLY recommend that you watch these tutorials by the author before you start.
This pattern has a different patterned opposite side, some have the same pattern with just the main dominant color reversed.
Much more to come!

My new pottery bird art pendants on Etsy! These are inspired by those funky 70’s articulated owl pendants that are once again all the rage. Will I make an owl pendant? Not sure, but I have a ton of other birds to make before I get there.
