I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master.
I design clothing for children up to about 10 years and also adults.
I have been published in Universal Yarns, Willow Yarns, One Skein Wonders for Babies, as well as various online magazines and self published designs.
This poncho is a great cover up when the weather starts getting cool. Knit in wool, it will keep your child cozy and warm. Fun to knit in self-striping yarn, but if made in rows of different colors, it can be a great stash buster.
