A small independent businesswoman, she opened The Pendulum Beautique in 1970. Even so, she always took the time to show her love to us with homemade traditional foods.

Moonlit Kiss Design Story

When God sends you a kiss under the moon light, the only thing to do is repay the blessing by turning it into a design! Originally crafted with Malabrigo Yarn’s Mora in mind, Moonlit Kiss’ objective was “a design as luxurious as the fiber with which it’s knit.” To me that spoke of evening elegance.

But how does that translate into stitches?

Invisible Hem for Top Down Knitting

Several years ago, I published a how-to hem-as-you-go for bottom up knitting. Those were the days when I never thought I’d ever try top down knitting (hehe, as my nephew says) “in all my life!” But then I was challenged and not wanting to back down, dove into top down knitting. I “mildly” enjoyed it, saw the benefits, and decided, yes, top down knitting is something I would like to investigate further.

The only problem, none of my bag of tricks were applicable!
