Designer gift scarves created for good friends!

Hi everyone!
I have been busy writing up some new patterns! The first one is for my Radiation Therapist Theresa who was very gentle and kind to me while I had my radiation treatments for 5 weeks. This scarf worked up beautiful in the soft and light Sirdar yarn which I found to be a delight to work with. It really enhanced the pattern! The pattern is quite fancy and very lacy!
I named it Theresa's Lacy Scarf.
The second one is a free pattern that I dedicated to another dear friend who adopted me to be her little sister--Terry! This one is an infinity scarf which really knits easily and can be taken on the road as well!  I named this one Terry's Kindness Infinity Scarf!

You can find both patterns in my Ravelry and Craftsy stores and the first one is for sale also in my Etsy store!

My new patterns inspired by the tropics and fancy stitches!

Hi there!
Whew! This summer is going fast! I hope that everyone is having a great summer and doing some fun things!
I am feeling better these days and have been inspired by pretty yarns and fancy stitches! Here are two of my latest knitting works!
First we have the tropics inspired scarf knit with a gorgeous colorway from Red Heart Super Saver yarns--Banana Berry! I do so love the colors of this yarn and have really enjoyed knitting different things with it such as socks. Now I just had to design a super easy scarf with an addicting, and interesting pattern stitch. It is called--"My Secret Lagoon Scarf."

Next is the delicate beauty of the "Raspberry Leaf Cowl!" I just love how the beautiful pattern is so enhanced by the gorgeous pink yarn!

You can find both of these patterns for sale in my Ravelry, Craftsy and Etsy stores.  Here are links to the stores:

New Baby blanket design---Baby's cuddly Soft Blankie

Hi friends,
I am feeling so much better and getting more and more able to do things around the house in spite of my extreme fatigue.  I am especially happy to be writing up some of my patterns finally!

Here is my latest pattern.  This is a very sweet baby blanket worked in sport weight yarn.  It would look fabulous in variegated or self striping yarns or lots of other colors! It is really very easy to work and features easy panels of lace with panels of double moss stitch worked between and also as the entire border of the blanket. I think that the moss stitch really coordinates well with the little blocks of lace in the lace panels. And the really neat part is that the pattern looks great on either side of the blanket!There are easy to follow instructions and a chart. I have this pattern available in my Ravelry, Craftsy and Etsy stores.

Busy knitter--New hats and scarfs and and infinty scarf!

Hi everyone,
I know its been a long time since I posted on here. I have been very sick and have been spending the last 5 weeks having radiation for my stage 4 breast cancer which went into the bone of my left arm.

Now I am through with that and trying to recover and catch up on my knitting designs and writing the patterns out! 

I have just put out my latest pattern--a double set of patterns for the chemo hats and scarves called "Super Soft Chemo Hats and Scarves:.  Also, an infinity scarf called "Rhondaly Infinity Scarf".  You can find both these patterns in my Ravelry , Craftsy and Etsy stores.
