I have been knitting and designing for over 50 years. My favourite thing to do is to draft and knit garments that are classic-with a-twist, that will fit, that I will wear proudly, that will be admired, and that will inspire others to learn how to knit! And my next favourite thing to do is pass all I know about how to do this along to you!
