After losing the ability to pursue my career and all my hobbies and pastimes due to a totally disabling neck and should injury in 2003, I took up knitting on a whim. Eschewing the patterns available at that time, and desperately needing a creative outlet, I decided to wing it and design things as I knit them.

Though I made a bit of a hash of my first sweater, with the armholes too high and the neck opening just barely wide enough to squeeze my head through, the sense of accomplishment I felt was a much needed balm at a time when I was still physically dependent on others.

I’ve come a long way since that first sweater. Though my life and the now looks completely different than it did before the injury, I’m almost entirely physically independent and the sweaters I design for myself fit perfectly.

Thank you for checking out my patterns. It means the world to me!

If you see a pattern you like, but can not afford, please pm me. Though pattern sales are an important income for me, I understand that the cost of patterns is a coffee for some people, but a day’s food for others. In an ideal world, lack of money wouldn’t prevent anyone from the pleasure of knitting.
