I finally finished a new design, not that it should have taken me as long as it did, but I am doing a lot of work towards growing tomato and pepper starts in our greenhouse to be ready for our local farmers' market, as well as making soap, printing macro-photos for cards that I make, etc. Spring does get me going, but there is so much to do. The Willow tree symbolizes the beginning of Spring, when all of life is stirring below, ready to shoot outwards once again. I feel that stirring within myself each Spring, anxious to sow seeds and feel that same sense of awe I feel each year as each tiny seed I plant becomes its own unique and incredible self, offering itself in the form of food and beauty for all to enjoy. I named this design "Willow Moon"... the Willow Leaf Edging is from Weldon's Practical Needlework Vol. 5, and combined with linen stitch for the body of the scarf, the difference in gauge causes a gentle curve to the scarf reminiscent of a crescent Moon.

- 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.
