I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

My next challenge

I got some yarns for this tote tonight after my class. I love to quilt as well as knit so this tote caught my eye immediately. It is from Knitters-Fall 2006. There are so many projects in this issue of Knitters that I really would like to try. It was hard to choose.

I picked out Nature Spun Worsted in the colors, Roasted Coffee, French Clay and Sunburst Gold. They are rich fall colors.

The bag is made sort of like the garterlac dishcloth. It is all in garter stitch but each square and triangle is done with picked up stitches and short rows. I think I should teach myself how to knit backwards!
