In 2014, I launched the sock monkey, a knitting pattern line with designs that interest, challenge, excite, and inspire the modern knitter.

My design influences have their roots in parallel lines and architecture; books and symmetry; food and color; white space and culture.

I firmly believe in wool and small farm yarns, something I actively promote to the fiber producers in my Southern Idaho farming town.

I believe that it is important to give back to the community that I have gotten so much from, which is why I design pretty much exclusively with independently-produced yarns.

You can join the tsm community on my blog, Ravelry, and Instagram.
