In addition to being a mother of two and a supply teacher, I am also an avid knitter. It is very rare that I will go more than a day without knitting something! On those days you will probably find me spinning yarn instead :) When writing each pattern, my goal has been to write it so that it is easy for even the most beginner of knitter to follow. If you ever have problems with a pattern or need some clarification on a step, you can reach me by email for assistance ( I strive to respond to all emails in under 12 hours.
