    Is it possible to see the scrumble pin in a close up? I think it is cool, but want to see it a bit better.

    LOVE those knitted pieces you designed. I can’t decide what I like better, your green knitted tunic dress or this yellow one.

    The sweater dress and cowl are both GORGEOUS – I love the acid yellow tone, especially against the red of the background…..

    I love this yellow empire waist dress! Looks great. I have been itching for a while now to make me one similar like that. Can you post some general pattern description (I am in particularly curious about the increases /or decreases/ that you made to get the tapered dress shape). Thank you. πŸ™‚
