March 2017 - My new site is now up and functioning. I can blog, share my thoughts and photographs, and sell my patterns! So much happening in my life and all is creative and forward moving! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Sept 2015 - I haven’t updated this in a while!
Still knitting, always knitting, I still teach and work at Mad About Ewe Fine Yarns. I also have designed for Vogue Knitting, Koigu Magazine, Zealana, Jimmie Beans, and Malabrigo, As of the beginning of 2015 I also became creative director of the Buffalo Wool Co., a new job that just flows along with what I already do.
I love to knit and design my own knits. I am heavily influenced by colour and texture (like most designers!) and the yarns I use usually tell me what they want me to do. When I try to tell the yarns what I want - they almost always argue back.
March 2012 - It has been a wonderful year. I have had 3 more pattern in Vogue Knitting - 2 in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue! I continue to teach and self-publish and sell my patterns through Ravelry and Patternfish. I have just started a Ravelry Forum Group Le Tissier Designs.
March 2011 - Late last year I entered the Vogue Magic of Mohair Competition - I was 1st runner-up! My pattern will be published in the Early Fall Edition of Vogue Knitting. My feet still haven’t touched the ground!
I work full time at my LYS, helping to run the store and teaching. Most of my patterns are designed around a technique that I am planning on teaching in a class! We also host a retreat once a year and I teach at the retreat as well. This last year - 2010 - was our tenth retreat!
Last year I started selling my patterns through the store and as well at Infiknit - a Canadian pattern and yarn distributor. They sell to yarn stores across Canada, the USA and Great Britain. Look for LeTissier Designs in your LYS.
