I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
A different take on the string bag - this one uses approximately 20 plastic (nonbiodegradeable!) grocery bags.
Gauge is not important for this project.
I like to think of myself as a good steward of the earth. When I go shopping, I try to use canvas bags to cut down on the number of those cheap plastic bags that I accumulate. But still, I have an ever expanding bag of bags in my pantry. Every so often we foist off these bags on friends and family that have dogs but this year I decided to reduce, reuse, and recycle those bags into a new grocery bag.
