I am a proud mother of a beautiful girl who sometimes draws things for me to knit. My husband is very supportive of my knitting and designing hobby and extremely helpful with computer questions.
I prefer to construct my garments and accessories as smartly and seamlessly as possible to save time on finishing and move on to the next idea. If I like a certain feature with a garment, for instance a special neckline or certain type of fit, I might revisit that idea later and explore it further with a new design. However, I tend to not repeat stitch patterns unless in matching sets.
One of my favorite parts of designing, is getting to work with so many wonderful people.
I especially cherish the international friendship aspect of being a designer, getting to know knitters in different countries and being able to collaborate with other designers, knitting magazines, and fiber artists.
