I’ve been knitting since the turn of the 21st century, and I love how Ravelry uses the power of this thing we call the internet (or internets or interweb, if you will) to bring knitters together!

I have a knitting blog, Nocturnal Knits, and my own website where you can download free knitting patterns I’ve designed. You can also find Nocturnal Knits on Facebook.

I am the author of the knitting book “Picture Perfect Knits,” which was released in Fall 2008 from Chronicle Books. It’s all about intarsia, and the book is chock full of instructions, full-patterns, and stand-alone charts so you can incorporate intarsia into anything you’re knitting. You can order the book from Amazon.com or look for it in bookstores!
