I truly love to create and knitting has been a great way to express my creativity. I take a lot of pride in designing and publishing knitwear. I enjoy the entire process from finding luxurious yarns, testing ideas, working and writing patterns, to photographing fantastic models and marketing through social media sites. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer as much as I do.
