I love to feel the softness and watch what forms on the needles, while experimenting with different techniques and fiber combinations. I've begun to work almost exclusively from my own patterns and draw on inspiration from nature and everyday life.

I'm a softie for a good yarn sale and can often be found haunting the clearance shelf at local yarn shops. I meet with fellow knitters a few times a month to share, learn, and find out what's new in the world of fiber arts and knitting for charities.

I am available for custom projects and welcome your feedback. Thank you for your interest in my shop of handmade and vintage items. Please let me know if I may help you.
