My goal as a designer and knitting instructor is to get people excited about knitting. I create garments and accessories that are fresh, fashion forward, and figure flattering. My hand knitwear designs have beautifully tailored silhouettes that combine color and texture with an attention to detail, fit, and construction. When I'm not in my studio designing or in a classroom teaching, you can find me globe trekking in search of inspiration.
Look for my work on the pages of Interweave Knits, Knitscene, and Knit Simple.
If you live in the Fredericksburg, VA area you can take classes and private lessons with me. Find my class offerings and schedule at worldknits.com.
