Carrie Sullivan, aka Irish Girlie Knits, is a blogger, sock-obsessed knitter, and designer known for her deceptively simple, perfectly gorgeous designs such as Cotty and Summer Wind. In addition to her self-published pattern line, Carrie has designed for sock clubs and yarn companies such as Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin' Sock Club, the Woolgirl Sock Club, The Plucky Knitter Classics, and Kollage Yarns. Carrie also made her teaching debut at Sock Summit 2011. Her knitting adventures, as well as her two cute doggies and ever-growing sock yarn stash are blogged about at We Do Not Have A Knitting Problem.
By day, Carrie runs a clinic for children with autism in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her Masters in Special Education from San Francisco State University and her Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame. Go Irish!
"My great-aunt Mimi described her brother, my great-uncle Frank, as such a caring, friendly guy. They grew up during the Depression, and she says he always brought home a friend when he was on leave. When their mother would wonder how she would feed an extra, "Frankie" would say, "Ah mom. Give him mine."
I designed the Uncle Frank socks in my great-uncle's honor and used that cable pattern again here. I just know this hat is something he would have worn. After all, he was quite the fine fella."
