I began designing knitting patterns as I started teaching knitting back in 2010 since I wanted to provide my students with simple patterns to push their skills. As I continued to design, inspiration caught me up in its whirlwind and I began playing with color and patterns. However, my continuing goal is to create patterns which inspire and teach new techniques to beginning and intermediate knitters. Recently, I joined with a partnership to run our local yarn shop and part of that was creating a space to display and sell local handmade fiber art. Inspired by the pieces coming into the shop, I started creating functional pieces of art.
