About

I first learned to knit – just knit; not purl, cast-on, bind off, etc. – when I was 10 years old, the same year I went to my first rock concert, The Beatles at Shea Stadium. After working endlessly on an enormous purple garter stitch muffler for my father I gave up. some years later, in my early 20’s, I was dating a man whose mother and grandmother were enthusiastic knitters, and so, to get in their good graces, I asked them to teach me to knit. It was instant addiction. While the boyfriend only lasted 9 years it has been over 30 years since then, and I have been obsessed ever since.

I have been teaching and designing for about 30 years. I spent a mercifully brief tenure doing hand knitting and design for a well known designer but I prefer creating my own designs. I try to write my patterns with a clarity that makes them accessible to people at all skill levels – I believe that the best way to learn is to jump in with a pattern that you love, and I want to make sure that anyone can follow and make my patterns, even if they have never done a technique it uses before. I always try to add something extra to my patterns, such as large size ranges or a photo tutorial on a technique used. I offer pattern support for all my designs and love to hear from people working on them.

There are several books and many patterns in the works, so stay tuned!
