Deep Dive: Cartecay Cowl

I published my first stranded knitting pattern: the Cartecay Cowl. I’m incredibly proud of this design – it’s graphic, modern, and looks like something I’d personally pick out at a clothing store. My hunch is that if I feel that way, you might, too!   The design started with a few basic sketches in Photoshop, […]

Let’s Talk Art with Brooke Podcast

Recently I was invited to chat with Brooke Musterman on the “Let’s Talk Art with Brooke” podcast. We talk about how I got started selling artwork, what it’s been like to build a creative business, and more. If you’d like to listen, click here. ♥

That Extra Skein of Yarn

This spring when I knit these mittens designed by Leelee Knits, it was the first time I had a hunch I may never stop knitting. I learned so much with this project, including how to join new colors and graft with the Kitchener stitch. I even made my own hand-stamped copper buttons to accent the ribbing. I […]

I want to follow up on my last post where I showed the sloth pattern design I made for a Spoonflower challenge. Well, afterward I made a full collection that’s now available in both my Creative Market and Spoonflower shops. […]

First Spoonflower Design Challenge – Sloth Pattern

Last week I entered the Spoonflower weekly design challenge for the first time. The theme was “Sloths” and the only rule was the design had to be a pattern. All entries were voted on by the public. The results are in today. My sloths placed in the Top 50 – #42 of 337 to be […]

Christmas House Illustrations

This week I continued to pour through the patterns and illustrations from my 100 Days project, and found there is still gold to be mined. These little Christmas houses were originally in pattern form, but I’ve separated them into individual files so they can be used on Christmas cards and prints. They have painted textures […]
