- 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 musician in the band Zayante. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band Zayante can be found on Soundcloud..

Amelie Escargot in Alaska
Amelie arrived in Whittier, Alaska yesterday via snail mail! Melanie Silcott, my niece, called me in the evening to thank me and tell me how much she liked her. Knitters know how much that means! Melanie is an awesome person and Amelie is in good hands.

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, or from Ravelry.

I would like to introduce Amelie Escargot, who I knit for my niece Melanie who travels the world. I never travel, so as in the movie "Amelie", Amelie Escargot will travel with Melanie and her boyfriend Morgan, and I will see pictures of her travels. She represents Oregon well, where it rains slugs and snails, and Eugene where we crown a Slug Queen each September during the Eugene Celebration. She will head to Alaska on Monday to begin her journey. I will post photos from Amelie's travels.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Each year we celebrate Cinco de Mayo in honor of my husband Dennis' maternal grandmother, Elise Conde, who came to this country from Sonora, Mexico. Dennis' mother, Marquita Pearman, has wonderful stories to tell of her mother's sense of humor and her love for playing the guitar. She died at the young age of 49 from uterine cancer, so Dennis did not have the pleasure of knowing her. Dennis is an amazing cook and makes a dish called "Puerco Pibil", or slow-roasted pork. We got the recipe from the movie "Once Upon A Time In Mexico", Robert Rodriguez, producer and director of the movie, and his version of this amazing dish...try it, you'll love it! Here you'll find the recipe in written form, can't seem to make it link though...I guess copy and paste into your google bar.
