A few of our favorite Stitches of My Life Designs
Room on the Broom
This pattern was originally released as a part of the Let’s Get Knitted Wit-chy collection. Room on the Broom is worked in a fun boomerang shape using squishy garter stitch, a little bit of mesh stitch for interest and is finished with a picot bind off. A single skein of fingering weight yarn, along with 6 mini skeins allows you to play with colors to create a unique piece every time. With this quick and easy piece, you’ll zoom along on your Room on the Broom!
Knit with Knitted Wit Sock (80% SW Merino 20% Nylon; 420 yards / 100 grams), and Knitted Wit mini-skeins, Gems (80% SW Merino 20% Nylon; 46 yards / 10 grams).

Lumos: to light up dark places at the flick of a wand. That’s exactly what happens with the bands of solid fingering yarn and gossamer mohair in this piece. This project is quick to knit up and with a flick of your wand you have a little bit of light to wrap around your neck.

Debbi also collaborates with best friend and fellow designer / knitter, Marcy Vandale under the name Adventures Du Jour Designs. Here are a few of our favorites.
One of the challenges in packing for a trip is figuring out the right project to bring along. Road Trip Cowl is just that, a grab and go project, with an easy to memorize stitch pattern. Using 2 skeins of yarn, either 2 solids or one solid and one variegated, this stitch pattern produces a complex looking accessory that is deceivingly simple. We recommend Knitted Wit Sock or Single Fingering. Or perhaps pair your solid color with our For Yarn's Sake exclusive Gradient from Huckleberry Knits, Made You Blush.

Tool Box is the perfect way to play with color. The original design was created using 52 yards each of six different eye-popping colors. We've adapted the pattern to knit with three coordinating softer shades of uber-soft Woolfolk yarn. A simple, mesmerizing knit combining stockinette, garter and slipped stitches - you'll want to knit it over and over and over and . . .
We made our Tool Box cowl with Woolfolk's amazingly soft fingering weight yarn, Tynd and Sno.
- 1 skein of Sno - Woolfolk's marled version of its classic fingering weight yarn, Tynd
- 2 coordinating skeins of Tynd
- Both yarns consist of 100% Ovis 21 Ultimate Merino Wool; 223 yards / 50 grams
