I have been knitting off and on since I was a child. With a lifelong interest in the fiber arts, including working in costume construction and design for the theatre, sewing, crocheting, quilting, and cross-stitching, I rediscovered the joys of knitting nine or ten years ago, and it has since become my obsession. I am an interior designer and furniture consultant for a large university, but spend most of my free time dreaming up new knitting designs and patterns. It’s a challenge juggling a developing business with a full time job, but I love it and hope to turn this into a second career for retirement. One can dream….

My designs feature classic lines and textured fabrics, with an interesting detail or two. I try to design clothing and accessories that I would be comfortable wearing - and that I would pull out of my closet again and again.

For news, questions, sneak peeks, and test knits, please join my group laughingstar knits.
