I learned to knit from my grandmother when I was 6. My focus in life has always been big picture, so I find great pleasure in spending time with detailed projects where I can lose a day in the enjoyment of the project. Knitting is my first love, because of the adaptability and variety. I enjoy lace, fair isle, stranded and garment knitting. Designing patterns is always something that I have done for myself, designing for a larger audience is my next challenge.
In my real life, I am the Yarn Production Manager for Craftsy. I get to develop projects with designers and play with yarn every day. I teach knitting at Fancy Tiger in Denver, instructing in 101, 201 (hats), lace, fair isle, socks and specialty classes. I get my beading fix by making stitch markers, which sell locally and on etsy(sunneshine).
I live with the love of my life, my very supportive husband, Bill, and our young black lab AJ, who makes us laugh every day.We spend time hiking, biking, camping and enjoying the beautiful Colorado mountains when I am not crafting.
