I am a hand-knitting designer and yarn dyer from Denver, Colorado, and
the author of Folk Shawls, Folk Vests,and Knitted Jackets: 20 Designs from Classic to Contemporary. Along with designing my line of patterns and hand-dyed yarns, I teach knitting in my Studio during weekly classes and the Knitaway® retreats, and at yarn shops, guilds, and events around the nation.
I have been knitting since I was 4 years old and teaching and designing for over 20 years. In knitting I have found both a way to connect with the world and a
meditative sanctuary. Knitting is for me an activity of the hands and the heart,
ancient and contemporary, grounding and uplifting. To work with my
hands and to share that work with others is truly one of the joys of my life.
Besides, being with knitters and yarn is a whole lot of fun!
