Regina's Profile

About

My name is Regina, and I've been an avid knitter since 1993.

I taught myself using books, magazines, and scads of internet research.

What I found in all that research is that it's tough to find well-designed, easy-to-understand knitting patterns for knits that I love. Either the fit was wrong, the yarn was wrong, or the pattern was flat-out wrong. (Who can say "pattern errata"?) So frustrating!

As a result, I taught myself how to design knits, so that I could knit exactly what I wanted, using the yarn that I wanted. I found that it was a lot of fun! I got less knitting finished, because I spent so much time designing, but I didn't care, because I knew that the end product would be EXACTLY what I wanted. And if it wasn't, I could change it.

So many folks loved my knits that I decided to pass them along to you, my fellow knitters. Whether you're a newbie or you've knitted your whole life, you're going to love my knits, too.

I love to incorporate texture and visual interest into many of my designs. My favorite features include intricate cabling and lace, as well as geometric designs. Baby items are fun, too, because they allow me to experiment on a small scale.
