I am knitaholic, knitter and knitwear designer, mother of three boys. I have designed a couple of years now. Including my self published line, my designs have been published in Knitty (webzine) and Knitscene (magazine) and in Finnish webzines and magazines.
I love knitting, you can always learn and invent something new! I love designing cardigans, they are my favorites. In addition, I design accessories and sometimes for kids too.
You can always ask pattern support via email! My patterns are test knitted and all techniques used well explained and I have made some photo-tutorials on my blog to help knitters with some technques. My patterns include links to those photo-tutorials.
