I take pride in creating beautiful and cozy hand knits that are stylish as well. I love every step in the process of knitting, choosing a fiber, a color, and then designing a piece. My inspiration comes from nature. I love earth tones, sandy beach beige, ocean blues, meadow greens, city shades of grey, summer sky spectrum.
