- I am a self-employed knitter/designer and photographer. I strive to write unique designs inspired by nature, folklore, magic, Fairies and Elves, and I find a lot of inspiration from symbolism and traditions in cultures throughout history. I also love to photograph nature on an intimate level. As a Master Gardener I raise garden starts each spring to sell locally, and I am also a soap maker and musician. I can be found at our local Dexter Lake Farmer's and Crafter's Market on Sundays from May thru October selling my knitting patterns and hand knit items, as well as hand crafted soap, macro-photography from the garden, and tomato and pepper starts for your garden. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band The Pears can be found on Reverbnation.

Victorian Lace Valance Pattern
I have always wanted to knit lace valances for my windows. I thought I would start with a small window in my bathroom before I moved into the dining room which has 3 large windows.I used Araucania Lonco Multy which is a kettle-dyed fingering cotton on a #4 needle. I am very happy with the results. The pattern is very easy to modify for any size window which makes it a "one size fits all" pattern. And I love the yarn, it's gorgeous! My pattern is available on this blog for purchase.
