For me, knitting is so much more than just a fiber art, needle craft, or hobby. It is a shared interest that connects me with countless other wonderful people, and the starting point to so many dear friendships. Over the years, as I grew more particular about my finished objects, I began modifying and changing them, and fell in love with the mathematics involved with designing knitwear. I strive to make my designs simple, yet visually interesting, and to make the process of knitting them enjoyable. I love seeing happy knitters, who are proud of what they created.
It's all about the color; I like to surround myself with colorful expressions, colorful friends, colorful clothing and colorful days. I am not a fan of grey or garter stitch so you probably won't find me toiling away on a beige garter stitch shawl. I love knitting sweaters and have been designing them in my head for years. As my daughter, an only child, left for college last fall, I decided to take a running jump into the world of knitting design and teaching. My idea to write a knitting pattern book, once shared with a dear friend, is becoming a reality and a color work sock pattern and three sweaters are currently in development.
