NewfieGir on

I am a transplanted Canadian ( a proud Newfoundlander in fact!) to the state of Indiana. I have basically been knitting for as long as I can remember. Over the years, I have lovingly gifted my knitwear to anyone who appreciates it. In 2010, with much encouragement from friends and family I began designing my own patterns. Now in 2014, I have finally decided to share some of them with you!
