I love to teach people how to knit or crochet and then watch them get totally addicted.

As co-owner of Sweet Paprika Designs, I'm always surrounded by yarn and knitting, and enjoy exploring the relationship between designing patterns and dyeing yarn.

When not knitting, I love to dance, teach Pilates, go on picnics and travel.
