For me, colour and texture rule and most of the inspiration feeding my imagination comes from the natural world. I see knitting as art, as viable as any other, and no matter what the tool or preferred palette, in human hands, magic happens.

New Spring Kits!




Fresh blooms amid tender green, the color of tulips, magnolias and apple blossoms. Imagine knitting with silken yarns so soft and lovely, every stitch is like a garden stroll. This fiber bouquet is primarily of hand-dyed luxury fibers and the yardage will take you a long way. I've been collecting these hues for awhile as they are so evocative of spring. An embellishment pack is included.

Each kit contains 7 yarns of approximately 500 yards including: 

  • 1 100 yard hand of Blue Heron textured cotton in Hibiscus
  • 1 100 hank of a hand-dyed variegated tape yarn (now extinct) in multiple pinks and a touch of green 
  • 1 100 yard hank of bamboo in pale pink 
  •  1 50 yard hank of La Lana silk in tender green
  • 1 55 yard hank of Hand Maiden Double Sea Silk in variegated greens and pinks 
  • 1 50 yard hand of Hand Silk Maiden in rich, deep pink like the throat of a nectar bloom
  • 1 50 yard hank of either tape or ribbon in variegated pink 
  • 1 $10.00 PDF pattern of your choice. Email me the name of your selection and I will email it to you in PDF form. 
  • 1 pouch of coordinating beads including shell, ceramic, pearls, green turquoise and jasper (8 beads in all)
  • *All kits come packaged in a clear plastic project bag

Yarnscaping is an idea I had a few years back based on the concept of making little kits of gourmet yarn centering on a specific theme, scene, concept or evocation. It is, after all, the way I knit and knitters keep requesting the exact yarns used in a certain project. To compile all the yarns I often use, which sometimes equals as many as 25 different kinds, would be so labor-intensive that no one would ever be able to afford the results. Winding all those yarns into delectable little balls takes time. And then there's my gourmet tastes in silks and diva yarns to consider…..
But, I thought, what if I offer starter kits? If you recall how the art of baking sometimes features starter recipes for cakes where all the cook need do is add their own staple ingredients—milk, flour, eggs—and stir for the magic to happen. My new Yarnscape Starter Kits work on the same principle. I'll be offering tasty yarn kits of mostly Fleece Artist yarns, hand-picked in evocative color combos along with beads for embellishment, enough yan for a large scarf or a small wrap or even a vest. Just add your own plain yarns and—voila! The kit can expand to nearly anything you want to make with all the knock-out yarns available to lift your knitting from the ordinary to the extraordinary!
Burnished Grape with amber and amethyst
Each kit contains up to approximately 300 yards of yarn and contains mostly silk plus combination yarns of my own creation.
We're still working on getting them ready but they should be on sale here soon. Bookmark this page or take an
RSS feed to update you each time a kit is offered. I'll have limited numbers of each so stay tuned.
