You can find me in all these crafty places:
Be sure to join my Ravelry group: Kathleen Dames Design for test-knit and pattern announcements, KALs, and support.
I live and knit (and design and teach knitting) in New York City with my husband (my very own Frederick Wentworth) and our three children. Before becoming a knitwear designer, I was as an art director in book publishing in Boston. Happily, the building blocks of design translated from graphic to knitwear.
For me designing is like writing a sonnet: There are strict rules about form (book covers should display the title and author and fit on a shelf, sweaters should have openings for head/hands/body and be constructed from knitted fabric), but within those forms there is boundless room for creativity.
