I am a knitwear designer and teacher with a full time job and a family. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, cross stitch, etc. from my mother as a child. I think I jumped from craft to craft more often than I would like to admit!
Knitting has become my main focus. I love to create new designs, and to figure out new ways of doing things. I really want my designs to be easy to wear, AND well fitting and flattering. There is no need to take all the time to make something if it is not going to be worn!
Although I love to create a well fitting, good looking cardigan or pullover, I also really like to crank out accessories. There is nothing like the feeling of getting a project, or a new pattern done!
I self publish. Those are the designs that you see here on Craftsy. I also design for yarn companies and knitting publications on a regular basis.
The Coastal Cami is a nice intro to lace! I suggest using a stitch marker every 9 stitches, so you can always double check that you still have 9 sts after you work each section. This way you can make sure you don't leave out a yarn over!
This is a really cute cami, very stretchy. You will definitely want to wear a store bought cami or tank top underneath.
Also, this is something that your teenage daughters will really want to wear!
