I live in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Though I have a degree in apparel design, I took to knitting years ago and haven’t looked back. I am currently enamored with lace, and with incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of my designs lean in this direction. I travel often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country. My new book, Knockout Knits, will be released in September 2014.
