My Grandmother taught me how to knit when I was seven years old. However, I quickly lost interest making Barbie tube dresses and put down the needles for several years. My passion was renewed when I moved to New York City to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where I majored in Fashion Design and specialized in knitwear. I've worked in the industry as a knitwear designer for over 10 years. I've gained lots of experience in construction, fit, and materials which I apply to my hand knit designs as well. I design handknit patterns for neoknits, a number of small yarn companies, and have been featured in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, and Twist Collective. I have also written a book of knitting patterns, Metropolitan Knits, which is due out June 2013 from Interweave Press.
