I began knitting model garments for the yarn industry, and at the same time, working on some of my own designs. I then began doing freelance designing and my patterns have appeared in the collections of Classic Elite, Fiber Trends, Tahki Stacy Charles, Lion Brand Yarns and others, and have been published by Interweave Press, Knitters, Knit1, Cast On, Knit It and Annies Attic. In 2001, I launched my own business, Lisa Knits, a line of knitwear patterns that are available in yarn shops across the country.
