I am a musician, writer and artist with a huge passion for fiber. I love to hand dye and spin anything I can get my hands on! For adventures in knitting, spinning and other odds and ends, visit my blog, ABOUT ME: I have contributed both articles and patterns to a number of places in print and online, including Knitscene, Vogue, spin off,, and through Ravelry. In 2007, I was a guest on diy’s knitting TV show “Knitty Gritty”. I started the annual online spin-along, The Tour de Fleece in 2006 to spin yarn along with the Tour de France. I’m especially proud of the ribbons I won for homespun yarn at the LA County Fair in 2006 and 2007. I love the way a big fair can combine excellence in craft with deep fried Oreos on a stick. When I’m not designing, I’m dreaming about designing. I’m also knitting, spinning, dying fiber, teaching, cycling, writing, doodling, walking, doing crossword puzzles, drinking tea, eating chocolate, stretching, contemplating the mystery of existence, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest.
