I have been addicted to designing knits since my first knitted creation, a sleeveless, cabled dress, was such a hit with my Barbie dolls. Quite a few decades have passed since then, and I am as captivated now as then, by the knitting process and what can be created with a little inspiration, tenacity and a few skeins of yarn. Though now primarily a knitter, I learned to sew at about the same time. Early in my childhood, I fell asleep many nights to the tune of my mother's old Singer sewing machine and I was thrilled when she used it to teach me to sew! She loved to embellish many of her sewn items with hand embroidery. One of my brother's shirts had an embroidered fishing fly on the pocket, and my sister and I had embroidery on collars and hems. I am grateful to have been taught by such an accomplished and creative sewist!
