Hi! Welcome to Woolen Diversions, the web home of Shoelaceswitcher Designs. My original knitting designs can be found on the Patterns tab, sorted by type. I primarily design accessories as they are satisfying, quick knits that provide great opportunities to try out some fancy stitches. My designs reflect what I like to knit: straightforward patterns with thoughtful details that are simple enough for knitters-on-the-go but fun enough to remain engaging. My patterns can also be found on Ravelry, Craftsy, and Patternfish, and you can sign up for my mailing list here.
Please browse around and stay a while! The blog is chock full of procrastiknitting at its finest, with more WIPs and grand plans than one can count. I am a compulsive researcher and distiller of information so I have lots of thoughts I like to share. I have two ongoing blog series: my spinner’s study (see the Spin-tastic! tab) and my Inspiration Saturday (see Knitspiration) posts. Archives and categories can be found in the sidebar, which I try to keep fairly well organized. Thanks for stopping by and don’t be shy about saying hello!
