Some of my hand knitting designs--click photos to view enlargements and descriptions.

Abbie's Pauper Sweater Dale of Norway Peace knock-off that perfectly
replicates the very popular original, which the Dale Garn version does not. Pattern available. Dale Bogstad inspired hand knitted
sweater made using Abbie's Pauper Sweater pattern. Pattern is available for purchase, $12. Remake of 1984 pattern Knitting Fever Phoenix Lace
Top uses sport weight cotton and unlimited size choices Son and I designed this together, a V-neck cardigan with
celtic knot cables Daughter and I designed this together, a V-neck, horizontal striped
cardigan with darts. Aran Weskit, a vest front cardigan with shawl collar, knitted with fingering weight
yarn. Pattern available, advanced.

This beret was a very entertaining study in jogless rounds, because
jogs are unsightly in Fair Isle knits. With a little ingenuity, they can be gotten rid of. Son and I put our heads together to piece
together the colorway on this traditional Norwegian sweater. Pattern for Aran weskit
is such that any size can be made, so I knitted one for daughter, with lapel collar, and added a matching skirt. Knitted this Norwegian and matching mittens for husband but made huge mistake, and thought
I'd have to rip much of sweater, but I prayed, and the Lord gave me a wondrous solution requiring no ripping. Made this shawl from someone else's pattern but got rid of seams by using invisible CO plus setting up edges so I
could add border panels by picking up stitches as I knitted.

Mini shawl and booties are redesigns of things I knitted for my babies, so I could have a
keepsake of those times by dressing a Bilo baby like my own. Accessories for my personal Norwegian cardigan, not pictured. Filet lace is crocheted, and I design these word and phrase panels and
frame them.

I've written a hand knitting pattern for the Dale of Norway Peace and Bogstad knock-offs: Abbie's Pauper Sweater pattern. Skill level is advanced. Price is $12. I can be contacted via FaceBook or my Wordpress blog.

Information about the original Knitting Fever Lace Top is HERE. My re-design corrects errors, eliminates unnecessary seams, replaces open work on lower bodice with cabled vines, and greatly expands the quantity of differing sizes that can be made, as the original pattern only provides two sizes.

I took up hand knitting in 1981 because I wanted things that I could not afford, so thought I'd try making them. I surprised myself with the discovery that I have a knack for this, much to my delight! Because we manage our money carefully, I determined that I would not make this an expensive hobby, but rather an inexpensive way to provide clothing for my household, so I have not taken expensive classes nor purchased many books. In fact, I own one reference book, and belonged to the Knitting Guild just one year -- to complete two master courses. I have honed my craft through personal effort and discovery, and am passing such to other knitters via my publications.

My personal preferences fall into the traditional realm: Fair Isle, Norwegian, Aran, Guernsey, Argyle, Shetland. I have made sweaters, shawls, socks, hats, mittens, doilies, lace things, cable things, multicolored things. In so doing, I have discovered, invented and researched a multitude of techniques for producing professional quality garments.

I've added photos of some of my finished projects, above.

I love to do needlework, draw and paint, sew, make music, wire wrap gemstones, raise wild silkmoths, but there is something much more precious than all of these -- the Lord Jesus. Without Him, I can do nothing at all. Even in my fiber art endeavors, many times when I have faced a challenge that seemed to be insurmountable, I have prayed and Jesus has actually given me the solutions. He is faithful in every area of my life -- even in insignificant things like knitting!
