As I love knitting so much I decided a few years ago to spend more time with designing knitted garments and create the corresponding patterns. And that's what I do today most of the time. In the meantime I published two German knitting books and work as an online trainer for knitting courses. My patterns are available in English and German, and I offer them on many websites and in my own online shop at www.fashionworks.de
