Suds Sock

Posted in Knit, Soap , on February 27, 2010

The perfect accompaniment to rectangular GEEKSOAPâ„¢ or FANSOAPâ„¢ bars – the Suds Sock! Knit design by me, and created to perfectly fit both the smaller and larger rectangular bars of my handmade soap line.

Knit from soft cotton and when used with soap inside, it’s like having your soap and washcloth all in one! Features a smooth side and a nubby, scrubby side for deep cleaning and and exfoliating action. Handle on the back side slips through the opening on the front side to keep your soap safely inside while you wash, and allows your Suds Sock to hang effortlessly in the shower.

These can be knitted in your choice of color. Personal pattern not available. Purchase one of my Suds Socks on Etsy.

Cousteau Cowl

Posted in Knit, Showcase , on February 20, 2010

This is a knitted cowl pattern that I created in December 2009. The cowl was created to match the Cousteau Hat that I knit for my husband at Christmas, so my cowl pattern was inspired by the Cousteau Hat pattern by Typy on Ravelry.

The pattern is available for free on Ravelry.

Unoriginal Bordered Basket Weave Dishcloth

Posted in Knit , on February 20, 2010

This is my unoriginal basket weave design for a knitted washcloth, created in June of 2009. I was in search of a good dishcloth pattern for knitting a gift to my boss at my summer job, and I couldn’t find just the right pattern. I liked the look of basket weave, so I came up with my own bordered edge pattern design featuring the basket weave in all of its glory. This pattern is available for free on Ravelry.

Huug the Hug Monster

Posted in Crochet, Knit, Plush , on February 20, 2010

Huug the Hug Monster is a character and pattern design that I created in February 2008. The original Huug was knit, but I have since created a crochet pattern to make Huug, too. (January 2009.)

Huug was invented randomly one day when I envisioned this cute and cuddly monster who was built with disproportionately large arms meant specifically for hugging. I began knitting and tweaked the dimensions and the pattern until Huug came alive in fiber exactly the way I imagined him in my head.

Knitted Duck Plush

Posted in Knit, Plush , on February 20, 2010

This is a design for a knitted duck plush that I created in December 2007, loosely based on a Lion Brand pattern whose body shape was achieved by folding a knitted square corner to corner to create a triangle. This pattern is available for free on Ravelry.

What in the world is a “gribbly” you ask?

“In gaming, an enemy/monster that is small and/or insignificant, and usually serves no purpose other than to irritate the gamer/opponent.”


“In tabletop gaming, a small annoying monster that does little more than irritate.”

So these are just tiny little insignificant creatures hiding in nooks and crannies that will do little more than just irritate you if they cross your path. They like to pester and annoy whomever they come in contact with, and I like to believe that gribblies are to blame for all of those little irritating setbacks in your typical day. Having a bad day? Blame it on the gribblies!

These are two creations I designed and knit in March 2008. They stand about an inch and a half tall, with the bunny a little taller than the frog due to its long ears.
