I know, I know, it's been a super long time since I've last posted, that's because real life got in the way. I have published 3 new designs in the meantime:

Fangorn - I really wanted to design a sweater with cables that reminded me of tree bark and of course honour Tolkien at the same time. :-)



MishMash Mitts & Hat - I love using up stash!


Pretty Pat - a pretty little cosmetic bag named after my beautiful good friend Pat

Shiny and New!

Finally, I've updated the website, take a peek at Needle Beetle!

It's been awhile since I've done such a major overhaul but I hope you all appreciate the new squeaky clean look and have more fun snooping around.

Within the next few weeks I plan to offer 3 new free patterns as well as a new cable pullover design. Stay tuned for updates and thanks for visiting!

Howlite

This is my current knitting project, not my design, but definitely my knitting.

:-)

Love how it's turning out and am on to sleeve #2.

You can find this pattern by Heather Dixon at www.armyofknitters.com

I love the intricacy, the collar, the sleeves, the cables. It was too pretty not to knit it.

Dragon Realm

Finally, I have something to share, it's been awhile but I hope the wait was worth it. If you'd like to order this new pattern it will be available for shipping the second week in September. I LOVE dragons, and am pretty stoked I came up with a design that shows off my favourite winged reptile.

wow, time flies

Sorry, no pics for this one, but I promise, cross my fingers that eventually I will find time to be "more timely" with my posts. Aarggh, life really does get in the way, but it's all good.

2 new designs are in the works, I've had a hankering to design something with a fantasy theme in sock yarn, and that is in the works, as well as a lacy top with Clea #10 crochet cotton. Tiny stitches makes for a happy Needle Beetle. :-)

finally!

Hello all, I'm sad to report that the world hasn't changed from a 24 hour day, so I'm stuck juggling with all of my pursuits (knitting, running, reading, cross-stitch) and making them fit into my spare time. But, FINALLY I have managed in the midst of running and knitting to actually come out with 2 new patterns for your knitting pleasure. White Water Rapids is a v-neck cardigan in the colours of rocks and water edged with wavy lace frills and Impressions is 3 pairs of stranded socks combining colour with twisted stitches. Both were fun patterns to design and knit and I'm looking forward to wearing them very soon as we are already in September, where did the summer go??
