Jen has been knitting since 2002, but has just recently begun designing. Her husband will tell you that Jen's side of the closet is insulated with yarn, and that Jen enjoys books, yarn, and books about yarn. When not studying for her master's degree in accounting, Jen is playing on Ravelry, wearing out the kids, or, you guessed it, knitting.
