I love design, fiber arts, depth of color and texture. I use mostly natural yarns and dyes for my creations. I design and knit bold, fresh shrugs, scarfs, women's and children's items and more. Email me at marykaye31@gmail for more information.

The Babes Wear Sweaters!

The Babes need to stay warm too in soft, slouchy, hanging around sweaters.
Fibers are all soft man-made yarns that are meant to stand up to playing.

Thanks to Tyler (6 months in blue), Joselyn (2 years in blue and brick colors) and
Manal (3 months in pink)!

The Hannah Shrug

The Hannah Shrug is made from a soft, wool-blend yarn. A crocheted collar completes the look! Merry Christmas Hannah!

Cozy Fall/Winter Scarfs of 2009

Cozy, colorful scarves are made from natural or organic fibers. I experimented with 100% organic cotton, Alpaca and fine merino wools. December found me creating a modern twist to the "pouch" scarf. Email me at marykaye31@gmail.com for information on how you can get your very own hand knit "pouch" scarf
