I live near Washington, DC, with my husband and two gorgeous sons.
- I got married in Central Park, about two weeks after 9/11. Bypassers cheered.
- I wear red socks and/or shoes whenever possible.
- I like bulleted lists.

Anthologies I’ve been in:
- I edited Knit It Together: Patterns and Inspiration for Knitting Circles. I wrote quite a bit of it, too.
- KnitSurfing the Subway in For the Love of Knitting (Read it!)
- A Knitter’s Therapy in Knitting Yarns and Spinning Tales
Around the Web:
- Suzyn’s Color Theory for Knitters on knitty.com “should be required reading” says the Yarn Harlot!
- I was a contributor on Carrie&Danielle – here’s my favorite post (I didn’t choose the picture!)
I knit. A friend in college accused me of “knitting my own reality.” To which I say: “Amen!”
- My popular Top-Down No Math Hats: Original, Manly, and Foursquare
- The Purple Teacozy of Sex (buy it)
- Trellis Cup Cozy (buy it)
- Bitty Mitts

Recieved your book today and I am impressed. What a lot of work and so well done, I don’t knit but I sew and I know how invovled one can get in a project Your Aunt Joy
Congratulations Suzyn. The book and photographs are wonderful!
Love your no math hat. Thank you for sharing. Is there any way have the crown of the hat wider? My son thinks it’s a little too pointy.
Thanks! You could always start with 8 st and do 8 increases – that should make the top of the hat flatter.
Suzyn, loved your website. It’s unique and fresh. I am amazed by your very eclectic background – and think it brings a vibrancy to your pages. Can’t wait to see more.
OH love the “knitting your own reality”. I think my husband would agree to that! Love your blog. I’d like to nominate you for the Sunshine Blogger Award, if you’ll join in: http://craftmanicmommy.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/oh-sweet-sunshine-a-blog-award/
Oh, you’re sweet – thanks! But I’m not much of a blogger. I posted – what – once last year!?
That’s what I thought as well. But I love your blog just the same 🙂
I bought this pattern now have lost it,I would like to have it back
Hi – your best bet is to go back to where you bought it – probably Ravelry. It could be in your library. Or, see if you can find the email that came to you after you bought it – it probably has a link you can use.
Can you make the swirly hat into. a blanket? How?
What a cool idea! I’d start with 8 st, rather than 6, because practice tells me that’ll give a flatter surface. Then I’d start just like the hat and… never stop increasing. Basically, make the top part of the hat as big as you like, and then cast off. You might want to do something to the edge so it doesn’t roll… Let me know how it goes!
