Although my grandmother taught me to knit (as in the knit stitch) at the age of eight, I didn’t make anything other than dishcloths for the first two decades. I’ve been knitting avidly since 2006, and have just started designing my own patterns!
I am happy to be at home with my two little boys, and try to find time to squeeze in a little knitting each day. I’m a huge fan of audiobooks, which give me the ability to knit and read at the same time. I live on a farm in the middle of nowhere Mississippi, but I am originally from New York City. I am a classically trained pianist, and my husband is a violinist. We met while playing in a Celtic band. I love knitting hats, and I’m a lefty!
