Kalurah Hudson on

I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. (6, 8 and 10) They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!

My design style reads romantic and at times vintage and whimsical. I am getting to do what I love every single day and hope that knitting and crochet never ever goes away!
