Houndstooth Cowl

I love Houndstooth. It is a timeless and classic pattern stitch that we fall in love with it again and again! This Houndstooth Cowl features a dramatic red and black color palette and a turning ridge that gives a peek of color on the edge and finishes this design perfectly. I think this will be a favorite! I know it is one of mine. Link to purchase here

Late Post of New Design -- more to come

What can I say? Life is crazy sometimes and my mind is on more important pressing things, so I forgot to even post a new pattern in a booklet published by Knit Picks. Forgive me!
Here is the link for the booklet.

A Picture is worth a thousand words...

Long time since I last posted. It just takes more energy than I have to write a post. I am still knitting and designing like a crazy woman.
I got a new camera for Christmas, so as I learn to use it,  I will say words with pictures. Then perhaps, I will find my voice along the way. Enjoy our beautiful Old Mill.






Colossians 1:16 and 17
For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.
