About Me

My photo
Dexter, Oregon, United States
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.

Free Patterns from Peargirl Knits

I have 2 new patterns that I am offering for free. The first is Jenny's Infinity...
This infinity scarf is a quick knit, using 3 skeins of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande on #11 knitting needles. There is a lot of texture in this scarf, and with a length of 72" in circumference, it can be wrapped 3 times around the neck as shown in the photo. Alpaca is lighter in weight than wool, so this is bulky and warm without being heavy. The pattern can be downloaded for free from my Ravelry Pattern Store: 

The second pattern is my Bell of Mindfulness:
This pattern is an easy crochet, featuring a discontinued yarn, Berroco Seduce. The length is crocheted, the beads sewed on, and then the brass bell is added. Beautiful to hang in a window, where the light will shine through the beads. 

This pattern is also available as a free download from my Ravelry Pattern Store:
"Listen, listen. This wonderful sound brings me back to my true self".

Best wishes for a happy, healthy 2014, I hope you enjoy!!!
