Taiga Hilliard on

My name is Taiga Hilliard and I am a yarn addict. I love designs that have a classic feel to them, but with a twist and am most happy when I get to work with cashmere, or other luxury yarns. When I do not have needles in my hands, I enjoy photography and reading.

I love top-down pieces, with very little finishing, and in the round patterns, which carries over into most of my designs.
