I live in upstate New York (in the USA), where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Despite holding a degree in apparel design from Cornell University, I took to knitting years ago and I haven't looked back. Currently, I am enamored with lace, beads and unexpected constructions so most of my designs lean in this direction. I travel often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country and online with Craftsy. I run two innovative kit clubs, have a line of knitting kits, self-publish patterns, and hold mystery Knit-Alongs twice a year. When I'm not designing or knitting, I'm gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family and taking time to play!
