Here is some of the stuff I make! I hope you enjoy.

This is the garment I will wear on every freezing airplane flight from now on! It’s like a blanket, but better. The pattern to make your own is here. -Gina

Lap Loom Weaving - I took an end of Summer trip to Los Angeles, where I grew up, to visit friends and family. While staying at my mother’s house, I found that she had saved all the lap looms I used in my childhood, as well as bags of yarn scraps painstakingly organized by color. I was so inspired that I made a weaving almost every day of my trip. It was such a thrill to take a break from the sometimes rigid nature of knit design (which I do professionally) and just create. I’m totally addicted to making these free, gestural pieces. Thanks, Mommy, for getting me hooked on weaving again!

I have a long standing fascination with commemorative quilts. Whenever I come across a wedding or anniversary quilt in my research, I am struck by their poetic beauty, and think of the wonderful memories they must bring into the home of the family receiving the quilt.

When a New York City native and mother to a beautiful one year old commissioned me to make a quilt commemorating her daughter’s first year, I jumped at the opportunity. I was even more thrilled to discover she had carefully saved the precious clothes her daughter wore when she was an infant. We collaborated to design a quilt made from these baby clothes, with a timeless feel the family can cherish for years. 

I’m so happy to have this commemorative quilt in my oeuvre, and I certainly hope to make more!

I am so excited to be working on special knit projects and patterns for The Purl Bee, the first of which is available today on purlbee.com! It’s a sweet little wrap pattern I had so much fun making. If you’re a knitter and you make one, I’d love to see it! Send me a picture!
