I'd have to say that the colors of the yarn inspired this sweater; the soft, fall colors reminded me of walking through the woods with the leaves swirling down. I wanted it to be a jacket that could be worn during the changing of the seasons so I knit it at a tighter gauge than usual. I am a big advocate of personalizing things that I make, and I wanted to give others a chance to make this design their own. I left the sweater plain for the most part, so that the detail could be added later, with embroidery, as the knitter desires.

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.
