- 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.

Are you looking for a quick, last minute gift for a knitting friend? I ended up making 4 of these...they are quick, easy and don't cost a lot of money to make. I found the square glass ornaments at Ben Franklin, $6.99 for a pack of 4. I used Bryson Rosewood Seaming Pins for the knitting needles, a pack of 10 costs around $7.00...and, of course, leftover sock yarn. I did find that all seaming pins are not created equal...I hand to sand some of the tips down slightly to get them to fit under the top edge, and then I used a crochet hook to position everything where I wanted them. When I wound the miniature ball of yarn, I used a little tacky glue to keep the ball from unwinding before placing in the ornament.
