For her birthday this year, my sister requested a 1920's-style cloche hat to go with her sassy flapper haircut. I was more than happy to oblige! I love the fashions of the 1920's, especially the hats, and have always wanted to make one. After searching in vain for just the right pattern, I decided to just design one myself. I named it after one of my favorite female icons of the era, the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.

I have loved Super Mario Bros. since the day I first played it on the NES. I designed this bag in honor of the release of the newest Mario game, Paper Mario for the Wii. The design for the bag is based on the last part of Level 1-1 of the original Super Mario Bros. game.

The bag uses a combination of fair isle, intarsia and embroidery to capture all of the detail.
 
 
holy point protectors - it's a tutorial! [uses already felted material]
So, by popular (well, popular for my blog) demand here’s my recipe for felt point protectors complete with stuff ups and cat shooing. Unfortunately the photos are a bit crap thanks mostly to my poor macro skills and dim winter light.

Make Your Own DPN Stitch Keepers, Deux [knit and felt]
I love DPN protectors. I wondered whether felted cups of our own making would serve, and another blogger sort of said, “So why don’t you?” So I did.
