Tric Drake's Profile
My book of original knitting patterns for newborns - "Welcoming Home Baby the Handcrafted Way" was released March, 2011 and sold out of the first printing within 8 weeks. The second printing is available now and the third printing comes out in January 2012 - over 18,500 copies in print worldwide! My own line of chunky handspuns - Colorful Nest Yarn Co. is now available in my shop.
I'm happily married to a wonderful man who never complains about my yarn stash. We have 7 children (ages 14, 11, 10, 8, 5, 5, and 28 months) who attend a wonderful Waldorf school. I knit while they're all sleeping in our cozy home in Nashville.
I spend insane amounts of time choosing my yarn combinations, knitting (and ripping out) swatches on different size needles, and trying out new stitch patterns until I find something that sings to me to knit it…
