I live in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Despite holding a degree in apparel design from Cornell University, I took to knitting years ago and I havent looked back.
Currently, Im enamored with lace and incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of my designs lean in this direction. I travel often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country and online with Craftsy.
I have a line of knitting kits, self-publish patterns and run mystery knit-alongs multiple times a year. You can find some of these designs in my book, Knockout Knits.
When Im not designing or knitting, Im gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family and taking time to play! Recently, Ive developed a healthy addiction to yoga and Im determined to master a tripod headstand and handstand!
Ennoble was originally released as my ever first Mystery KAL in April of '11. It is a rectangular lace scarf with pre-strung beads worked at the bottom to create an elaborate border. There is ALOT of discussion and help for this pattern, if you need it, in my Ravelry Group! The pattern has both charts and written directions, videos and lots of helpful hints for working with beads!
