I received an email a few months ago with the subject line “weird crochet request,” asking if I would create a teapot cosy that looks like Björk. It’s the most unusual request I’ve received to date, and it’s finally finished!

Knitted, crocheted, and embroidered with a mixture of merino wool, baby alpaca, and acrylic yarn. It took a few tries to get it just right, but I’m really pleased with the end result. It’s definitely one of a kind.

Though I’ve had little time to knit since starting my new job as a professor at SUNY New Paltz, I’ve been working steadily on this sweater — my second official commission. It’s also, incidentally, the first v-neck I’ve ever made (thank you for the challenge, Cade — I learned something new!)! Knitted up in a deep navy blue and bright, jolly red, this sweater was completed just in time for the wintery months to come and is sure to keep its owner toasty warm. The red yarn is from Oma’s vintage stash, which makes it a particularly special one-of-a-kind Brooker Hollow original. (Special thanks to Brian for modeling upon request.)

Made as a wedding gift, this throw measures about 51″ x 51″.

Crocheted in my signature color-block granny square pattern. Squares arranged with Brian‘s help.

100% acrylic yarn makes for easy care.

Mimi really loved the look of the Wythe Scarf, so I made her this one custom one in Woodlands — a rich mixture of turquoise and umber shades. Pretty lady!

I made a knit t-shirt.

 I made the hat from yarn I got from Oma.  It’s literally as bright as it looks in the picture.  Too bad it’s that kind of acrylic yarn from the 60s that feels like plastic.
