Kate Lemmers on

I became obsessed in 2000, I have not stopped knitting since. I love working in yarn stores and I teach Knitting, Needle Felting, basic Crochet, Hand Dyeing, and Designing. My designs have been published in magazines. I also have sold designs to some yarn companies. I live with my loving and extremely understanding husband and her over flowing stash just 30 minutes from NYC.
