By a happy accident I discovered knitting on a blog and knew immediately it was something I wanted to do. My combined love of art/design and mathematics/programming quickly led to me discovering their happy marriage in knitting design. Evenings usually find me working on my designs to the sounds of my husbandís Xbox in our home in Dallas, Texas.
