I am a knitwear designer and teacher with a full time job and a family. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, cross stitch, etc. from my mother as a child. I think I jumped from craft to craft more often than I would like to admit!
Knitting has become my main focus. I love to create new designs, and to figure out new ways of doing things. I really want my designs to be easy to wear, AND well fitting and flattering. There is no need to take all the time to make something if it is not going to be worn!
Although I love to create a well fitting, good looking cardigan or pullover, I also really like to crank out accessories. There is nothing like the feeling of getting a project, or a new pattern done!
I self publish. Those are the designs that you see here on Craftsy. I also design for yarn companies and knitting publications on a regular basis.
This hat and Neck Gator is soft as can be! The yarn is lofty and warm. The hat is actually 2 layers thick over your ears, so if you require a warm hat in the winter, this is the pattern for you! I made it for skiing in Winter Park Colorado, where one of the mountains is named Mary Jane. The real Mary Jane was a working woman, if you know what I mean!
