Romi Hill
Romi’s love of lace knitting lead her to start Designs by Romi. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including Knitty, Knitscene, Interweave Knits, Twist Collective, and in several books. In 2010, she established a Ravelry group with the goal of knitting 10 shawls that year - seven more than she had planned. Her first 7 Small Shawls eBook subscription collection was born! She is now working on her fourth eBook and stays busy knitting, designing and teaching.
