I taught myself to knit, and I love a challenge! I try to learn new things with every project and with every new design. I enjoy everything from leisurely TV projects to intricate lace with beads. I always have too many projects going on at once because I’m always anxious to start something new!

I am allergic to some natural fibres (cashmere, mohair, and yak, primarily) and I am sensitive to some wools, which means that I am comfortable working with a variety of non-traditional plant-based fibres as well as standard wool and wool blends. I have a degree in Genetics and Evolutionary Biology and my designs are often inspired by species that coexist with us on planet Earth.

“… whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” - Charles Darwin

Who wouldn’t be inspired by that?

Thanks for checking out my designs!
