In recent years, I've decided to just admit that I'm a bit of a sci-fi / fantasy geek. I love to watch or read plot lines about good vs. evil, humans vs. supes (that's slang for supernatural beings to us nerdy types), demons vs. angels... you get the idea. I knit this cowl while watching the final episodes in a "save the world from the apocalypse" season of one of my favorite TV shows. I couldn't help but think that the oh-so-cute boys tasked with saving the world would have benefitted from something to keep them warm during those long and lonely nights fighting evil.

I have been knitting for a long time (since I was about 7!) and crocheting even longer -- lots of crafting, generally, as long as I can remember. For the past 15 years or so, my focus has been on knitting. I have been teaching knitting for about 5 years. I am a CYCA Certified Knitting Instructor. I teach a variety of knitting classes at Twisted in Portland, OR, where I get to spend my time with lots of wonderful knitters! I taught at the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, OR in 2011 and at Sock Summit 2011 in Portland, OR. I am always interested in trying out new forums to teach classes. I also teach private lessons for individuals or small groups. When I’m not knitting, I am an attorney practicing intellectual property law - that’s trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, etc., everything except writing patents. I work on both transactional and litigation matters related to intellectual property.
