Leigh has been addicted to designing knits since her first knitted creation, a sleeveless, cabled dress, was such a hit with her Barbie dolls. Though quite a few decades have passed, she is as captivated now as then, by the knitting process and what can be created with a little inspiration, tenacity and a few skeins of yarn.
