Started seriously knitting back in college and have done it on and off over the years. Came back to it in full force in 2004, learned to knit socks in 2007, became a knitting teacher in 2007, and started designing in 2010.

About designing: I consider hand knits as art for the body. Each piece should be beautiful, and unique for the wearer.
