Rarely will a knit pattern appear here as I do not consider myself a designer or pattern writer.  However, occasionally I can be persuaded to share how I made something, and since there have been requests, I am providing this guideline.

Making a Fiber Arts Advent Calender

2017/18 advent calender

Advent, also known as Count-down to Christmas, is only two months away and I am back working on my newest advent calender. It is all fiber arts, very big (30"x40"), and a work in progress! As you see it in the image above, it was at the point of being usable last holiday season (2017 season). But by no means completed.

How to Make a Gnome...EASY

process steps gnome/tomte

A Gnome, most especially a Scandinavian Gnome, is all about three things...the hair (and beard), the nose, and the hat.

Yarn Stars. The Perfect Last Minute Ornament or Decoration.

Yarn stars 2015

Yarn Stars make beautiful, very last minute ornaments for holiday decorating - tree ornaments, garlands, gift tie-ons, hanging in windows. Diane at craftypod and I had a little yarn star making playtime with family and these were the results.

As you can see, even if you sort of lose your way and go a different direction, as long as you are consistent, the star should work out. Notice the cool open weave of the grey and red star above. I love it!
