Knitting and crochet are my true passions but I expect to stay a part-time designer until I retire from my day job. I have a PhD in maths and started out in academia but I now work as an analyst for a Govt Dept. Although I am new to publishing in knitting and crochet I hope that my customers will benefit from my experience in teaching and publishing for a variety of audiences over the last 25 years.
I am lucky to have a husband who understands hobbies and especially the need for a hobby budget :-) We live in Australias national capital, Canberra, with our four footy-mad sons, in a house we designed in a lovely new suburb with landscaped parks and lots of birds, including beautiful black swans.

Do you have a lovely skein of varigated yarn and want a pattern that will not allow any pooling at all?

Slipped stitch short rows are used but you can easily use your favourite method or use this project to practise one you've just learned.
