The body is knitted sideways

My first published patterns

Alpaca motif incorporated into yolk

Sweater can be worn back to front also

Original version of hat

Hat Pattern for American Alpacas

I didn’t want to write any more patterns

It interferes with the creative process

The garments got complicated

Spring 2004

And not wanting to re-create notes at end

Not wanting to stop to make notes

I usually start sleeves somewhere in middle

Familiar stitch patterns add interest

The subtleties are rewarding

Then I started dying my yarns

Buttons can make a statement

Diagonal Knitting; a whole new grammar

Becomes a cape with added collar

A long rectangle folded on itself

Straight back with diagonal edges added

Big collar picked up and knitted last
