Knitters - want a quick and beautiful pattern that does double or even triple duty? Please check out this post by the lovely and talented Jewleigh. She's an amazingly gifted knitter who has just designed her first pattern. Is this not beautiful? I think this would be a beautiful gift for the holidays.
I stole this photo right from her post but I'm pretty sure she won't mind.

Jewleigh began knitting only a couple years ago and immediately surpassed me in talent and knowledge. She knits socks, which I haven't, and sweaters, which I haven't, and now she's designing patterns? Which, of course, I haven't. Amazing. You can also find her on Ravelry.

Please, go take a peak at some of the amazing work she has done.


  1. Thank you for sharing. I JUST finished my 1st 2 projects ( a scarf and hat) and I LOVE this. I am thinking of taking a sock class at either Threadbender in Wyoming or Joanns as I am on a "sock" mission. Happy Winter knitting. Are you on Ravelry? I just joined.


  2. Next year I'm going to *try* and get some knitting done;) so I'll bookmark this link thank you. In the meantime I'm having a look at your bloglist to see if anything tickles my fancy!
    Nice to 'see' you just now:)

  3. Pamela - I am on Ravelry as ItsLily. Hope to see you there. Jewleigh is, hopefully, going to be my d-i-l someday, especially since she and my son have been together for 6 years. Goodness.

  4. Beautiful! I wish I could the hang of knitting. And crocheting for that matter!
