There are painters and crafters on both sides of Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton's family, and she strives to bring those worlds together in structured, colorful knitting. Cornelia loves dreaming up designs because it lets her unleash her creativity by bringing color and craft together. It's no wonder she's authored more than a dozen pattern books! She travels to teach at conventions such as Stitches, spreading knowledge that helps fellow knitters achieve their goals. As if she weren't busy enough, Cornelia even has her own yarn line: Heaven's Hand.
