New in 2017: check out my pattern-a-week Patreon project!

Hi! You might know me as Knitgrrl -- I’m a designer, and the author, co-author or editor of several books, including Knitgrrl, Knitgrrl 2, Spin to Knit, Felt Frenzy, Crochet Style, Just Socks, Just Gifts, AlterNation, The Pillow Book, How to Knit in the Woods, the second edition of Knitting For Dummies, Alt Fiber and The Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design.

I am also the former editor of UK-based Yarn Forward magazine, previously wrote a column for knit.1 magazine and most recently served as the expert columnist for Knitting Today!

I own Knitgrrl Studio, a workshop/studio space in Cleveland, sell hand-dyed yarn, founded the annual NaKniSweMo KAL, and co-founded Felt School (both of which have Ravelry groups).

I also teach online classes, including the bestselling Designer 101, a kind of bootcamp for knit designers! Note that we’re switching to a new platform for this in 2017, more information will be coming soon.

Supporting independent designers is very important to me -- I own and operate Cooperative Press, a fiber arts publishing company.

And finally, I sell my patterns on Ravelry, too. Thanks for all your emails, comments and the lovely work you’ve done with my designs!
