I love to dye fabric, yarn and clothing and create with color. I like to knit socks, felted items, scarves, cardigans and all manor of stranded and slip stitch designs. I first got into designing socks because I could never find patterns that fit my thick ankles & high insteps. I would just find a nice stitch pattern, adjust for pattern multiples/repeats and gauge and use my favorite heel and toe. After having success with socks, I have made sweaters for myself and family members. I would find a pattern with shaping that I liked and drop in my choice of stitch pattern.
I’m bi-craftual: I learned to crochet first, and did that for several years until I learned to knit so I could make a circular yoked Fair Isle sweater. I never have made that sweater, because I can’t wear Shetland wool.
