Mods to Tornado Pattern

I’m reposting my Tornado pattern here on my new blog since I’m phasing out the old one. Pattern directions & charts can now be accessed & downloaded through this new link. Thanks!

These are the modifications I made to the Tornado pattern originally designed by Mira Saarentaus & can be found on Ravelry.

My project with the original notes, as well as photos & links, can also be found on Ravelry.

Better Know A Crafter: Roxanne Miller

 
Roxanne came in to chat us up about a knitting program she’s been working on, and we couldn’t keep our eyes off her gorgeous new sweater! It is made with two weights of Madelintosh in the same colorway, for a very cool lacy stripe effect. It is stunning, Roxanne!

What types of crafts do you do?
I like to make things. I knit, sew, draw, cook, decorate, garden–anything that pops into my head. I love creating things. I usually get inspired by everyday things. I’ll see something someone is wearing or see something for sale in a store & instantly think, “I could make that!”, then go home and try to figure it out.

 
 
 
What is the beautiful cardigan you are wearing?
I knitted this using Madelinetosh DK & Tosh Merino Light in the color Opaline. I used the Army Of Knitters pattern Cassiopeia.
 
 
 
 

How did you learn to knit?

I actually taught myself how to knit and crochet. I’ve been knitting for about three years and absolutely LOVE it.
 
What is your favorite animal?
My favorite animal is a liger, known for it’s skills in magic.
Thanks Roxanne! Happy knitting!
