i have a fine arts background that turned very easily into fiber art when given the chance. i like making things and find myself right at home with the colors and textures of all things woolie. i spin, knit, dye, recycle, embellish, design, and teach. i am the founder of Indie Knit and Spin, a small indie fiber festival that happens each november in Pittsburgh, PA. my yarn and dyed spinning fiber can be found at the through the cosymakes shop, including kits for my patterns. a bunch of my patterns have also been collected in a book: Knit One, Embellish Too: Hats, Mittens, and Scarves with a Twist. my indie patterns are available right here on ravelry.
