I am so excited to reveal the designs and patterns for this year’s Road To Rhinebeck Shawl-along with Kristy Glass Knits and Asylum Fibers. Sometimes collaborations and projects are just so special that it is a touch of magic in every step and the finished product is beyond what we imagined at the start. For me, this is one of those cases. Working with Kristy Glass & Stephanie of Asylum Fibers on this annual collaboration may be one of the single best parts of my year. And my job. Our theme this year is Dutchess & Dragons and may I present: The Dragon County Crochet Shawl AND The Dragon Kounty Knit Shawl!Read More
Continuing my New York City roots exploration and shining a spotlight on other makers & designers, I want to introduce you to Katrina Walser of Oliphant Kat and her newest design for us: Emilia’s Nursing Shawl. And don’t worry - no baby is required to create and love this designer and this design!Read More
Since going home to NYC for Vogue Knitting Live in January and then again in April to visit friends and celebrate my birthday, well, I have had my inspiration by architecture reignited. It got me thinking about my crochet design work and it inspired me to present a collection of Shawls Of A New Shape for 2018.Read More
As a designer I am always challenging myself to try new things. And as a former frequent traveler I know the need of packing light and having garments that serve multiple functions. That was what inspired me to design my new Four Way Shawl. Wear it as a shawl, a scarf, a wrap or even a sarong. I pack this one item from Chicago to Miami for it's multi function awesomeness.
This one item will truly get you through every season and is fun to create. What is special is the triangle shape and the ability to make this larger or smaller with ease. I chose a soft acrylic fiber but then moved up to a bulky weight fiber for the winter collection.
