Hi! I’m Diane L. Augustin and I am Yarn Happy - Bead Happy

Check out my Quick Projects Bundle for projects you can make in no time. Thanks. Enjoy!

I teach knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet classes at several yarn shops and art centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/St. Croix Valley area. One of my passions is knitting and crocheting with beads. I also manage the daily activities and teach classes at ThunderWillow Community Arts in Hudson, WI. I have classes at Ramsay County and Hudson libraries, as well as through Hudson Community Education. I often conduct workshops and demonstrations at special events and festivals in the area.

I have been teaching professionally for seven years. My background as a graphic artist in the publishing industry facilitates my ability to design, write, produce and publish my patterns. I am also the photographer. I continuously develop new designs, offering them as classes, with a focus on teaching techniques.

I learned to knit continental or combination style at seven years old from my grandmother, who had to teach me in order to get her own knitting back from me! I live in western WI, just outside of Hudson, with my husband, Lance and the boss of the household, Thomas Edison, our stray kitty who came to stay. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy!

I hope my designs will become your favorites. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy!

My pattern was published in the newly released book, North Shore Knits, produced by Three Irish Girls. The book is composed of patterns by local designers, inspired by the fantastic new color ways created by Three Irish Girls.

My designs are also published in the Knitting: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2013-2017 Day-to-Day Calendars as well as Crochet: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2013-2017 Day-to-Day Calendars.

Berroco Yarns has posted a very nice write-up to their blog, Designer Spotlight: Get-up-and-go Cowl by Diane Augustin. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry.

Thanks for your interest!
Please Enjoy!
Diane
