Womb Warrior

A knitting friend gifted me some neon pink yarn recently. It’s a wonderful shock of pink and I already plan to use it in several upcoming projects. But in light of recent news, I felt compelled to knit myself a womb. Ursula expressed some interest in my work. For now, my womb is snuggled up to Persephone on my bedroom […]

Art of the Gift

I’m happy to announce that Twilly23 plushies are now for sale in at the Pendleton Arts Center. Additionally, they are part of the PCA’s holiday event Art Of The Gift. One of my cat plushies is even featured on the poster! If you’re in Eastern Oregon, stop on by for some great holiday gifts. The space is overflowing with gorgeous […]

Lotus Pond Blanket

My Lotus Pond Blanket is finally finished! This project began back in 2017 when Josh and I were living in our first apartment in Taiwan. Originally I was going to make pink flowers attached to vines that would hang down from our balcony. It was my first summer in Taiwan and I was unbearably hot most of the time. Knitting […]

New Twilly23 Products!

The studio has been abuzz these past few weeks. I’ve created one new and one old pattern. The ones above are my new Sweater Savers. These plushies live in your dresser and are stuffed with cedar chips to keep those pesky moths away. They are made with upcycled sweaters, ribbons and buttons. Monster purses have been a stable in my […]

Summer Spinning

Summer in Eastern Oregon was pretty intense this year, as it was in a lot of Oregon, even Portland. Yet I managed to get some spinning down thanks to our basement. These skeins are a ply of Pancake and Lulu roving and Plotulopi yarn that Josh brought me back from Iceland years ago.   Plying the two together gave me […]

Twilly23 plushies now in Eastern Oregon

I’m happy to announce that my plushies are now for sale at Pendleton Foundation Trust Fine Craft Gallery! Located in the Pendleton Center for the Arts, there are lots of talented artists featured. I’m so excited to be part of this creative community. I’m becoming known as an upcycled maker and was recently gifted two felted sweaters. These guys were […]

Lotus Flowers… Assemble

We’ve been getting intense temps in Oregon. It was 110 today! Josh and I have been surviving thanks to a small window AC and Marvel movies. Despite the heat, I’ve gotten some knitting progress made. My blue blanket is finished and was an utter joy to knit. (Except I didn’t weave in my ends as I went. Lesson learned!) This […]

Owl Plushie

Earlier this year I designed a new plushie. Owls were appearing in numerous forms suddenly so I channeled that energy into a new design. This item is available for purchase in my shop. Like my other plushies, these owls are made from upcycled sweaters. The buttons, felt eyes and bows are also upcycled. Combining different patches of sweater material makes […]

Tooth Fairy Pillow

My latest design is a spin on a tooth fairy pillow. I decided to take it literally and created a tooth with wings. This item is now available for purchase in my shop. On the back there is a pocket for the all important tooth/money exchange. It’s large enough to slip in a folded up dollar for more valuable wisdom […]

Tunicam Cattus

My newest design is a cat named Tunicam Cattus (Latin for Tunic Cat). It’s made from upcycled sweaters. I’m selling both finished cat plushies and DIY kits for you to make your own. Both finished cats and kits use upcycled sweaters, yarn and buttons. You can buy both at Salty Teacup in Portland.
