Alpaca Scarf for Madame Latimore

Alpaca Scarf for Madame Latimore

Madame Latimore, my French teacher for all four years of high school, taught me how to knit the spring of my senior year. As you can tell by this site, I am certainly thankful for her help in getting me started in this field! In 2005, I made her a scarf as a "thank you" for her lessons that she gave me five years prior.

Bulky Multi-Colored Sweater for Mallika, my sister

Bulky Multi-Colored Sweater for Mallika, my sister

I knit this simple sweater in the winter of 2000 using three colors of the same cheap worsted wool/acrylic blend. It was a fast project, completed in less than 2 weeks and as you may be able to tell, the finishing wasn't the best.


Cableknit Scarf for My Sister

A simple dark grey winter hat I knit for my friend Clint in college. Unfortunately the hat doesn't get a whole lot of use right now because Clint and Maggie (his wife, and another college friend) live in Texas now.

Emma's Blanket

I made this baby blanket for Emma Charlot when she was born -- she is the daughter of Leigh Ann Charlot, who I worked with on the Susan Garrett for State Senate (IL) campaign in 2002. Leigh Ann reports that 4 years after receiving the blanket, both Emma and her new baby brother Tad, still enjoy its comfort and warmth.

Madhu's Black Mittens

Madhu's Black Mittens

These thick black mittens are knit with bulky wool on size 10.5 needles. I've made pairs for myself, my sister, and a former co-worker, Nate, as well as a few others. I have a tendency to always lose one of my mittens, and this pair is no exception, which is why you only see one.


Madhu's Fingerless Mitts

Madhu's Fingerless Mitts

Winter 2005 was definitely the winter of fingerless mitts -- my second of two pairs (other knit for Sandra).

Madhu's Stolen Baby Alpaca Hat

Madhu's Stolen Baby Alpaca Hat

If you see anyone in New Haven, CT wearing this hat, make sure you stop them and ask them where they got this one-of-a-kind wonderful hat! And then make sure you take the hat back from them and tell them that stealing doesn't pay.

Madhuri's Socks Flat

Madhuri's Socks Flat

These socks look huge don't they? Well, in fact they fit my size 7 1/2 feet (the average for American women) -- knit socks ofen are larger than commercially produced socks because they often lack the elastic that commercial socks have to stretch the socks at the appropriate places.


Madhuri's Socks Modeled
