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.
Slouchy hats and berets are all the rage this year. And why not? They're fun to knit, forgiving in fit for a wide range of head sizes, and don't give you hat hair when you take them off. Tammie is a great choice for summer and fall travels, whether to Scotland or just around your neighborhood! The ribbing helps it fold up nicely in your suitcase, and the worsted bamboo/cotton/elastic yarn means it'll have a good blend of heft and coolness.
