In my everyday life I work as a web and graphic designer. After work (and in nearly every free minute) I fetch my needles and start knitting. One day when my family and friends where completely overwhelmed with knitted items, I decided to offer my self-designed models and the corresponding patterns online. That was a few years ago - and I'm very happy that it succeeded so well.
