♊ Power Knitter, Passionate Teacher, Periodic Blogger, Loyal Raveler, ♡er of life+color. When I take a break, I …crochet!
I live and work in Piraeus, Greece, with my husband, an English & Greek Language Teacher & Digital Editor and our teenage son, an avid crafter from an early age.
I was taught to knit and crochet at school, when I was 13 years old and creating my own “patterns” seemed only natural to me. Thanks to Ravelry, I have been able to write them down and share them with you, the wonderful knitters’ community.
I usually collaborate with indie-dyers and create original accessories and garments with their beautiful handspun/handdyed yarn. I am a firm believer in the power of working together to promote our crafts. I also invest my money and time, buying the yarns I like to create a new designs(although not so often as I would like to, as budget is always an issue these days).

lace’n’garter knits is my official Ravelry Designer’s group! You’re welcome to join us in Test Knitting KALs and in the annual MKAL!
