About

I learned to knit six years ago when my daughter was a toddler and got so thoroughly obsessed I had to find a job in the yarn industry so I could be around knitting all the time. I spent five of those years as the Design Director for Schaefer Yarn which had to have been the best job ever... now I am an independent knitwear designer! I teach knitting techniques at workshops around the country, but most often locally at my LYS, Knitting Etc. When I'm not designing or knitting, I am gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family, and taking time to play!
