For me, knitting and crocheting evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between. I dream about wool during the long Canadian winters, often waking from my sleep with visions of knittins dancing in my head.
Things I never leave home without: Chris, my handsome traveling companion, a knitting project, trusty e-reader, and a picture of my slightly obese cat, Ivan.
