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 haven’t looked back.
Currently, I’m 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 I’m not designing or knitting, I’m gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family and taking time to play! Recently, I’ve developed a healthy addiction to yoga — and I’m determined to master a tripod headstand and handstand!
Eventide is seriously one of my favorite beaded scarves ever! Eventide is based an an incredibly easy 6 stitch "cross stitch" pattern. It is made by working double yarnovers that add length to your stitches so they float and appear to be woven not knitted. My inner weaver loves this! Beads are used on each end of the scarf creating an arrow of bling! The pattern includes lots of info on working with beads, including: stringing beads, purling and knitting with beads, working yarn-overs with beads, and more.
