I live in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Despite holding a degree in apparel design from Cornell University, I took to knitting years ago and I haven’t looked back.
Currently, I’m enamored with lace and incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of my designs lean in this direction. I travel often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country and online with Craftsy.
I have a line of knitting kits, self-publish patterns and run mystery knit-alongs multiple times a year. You can find some of these designs in my book, Knockout Knits.
When I’m not designing or knitting, I’m gardening, whipping up yummy feasts with my family and taking time to play! Recently, I’ve developed a healthy addiction to yoga — and I’m determined to master a tripod headstand and handstand!
Juego is a center out, top down, bi-color shawl worked seamlessly in sections with a reversible cable edging. The pattern contains links to 7 unique videos that help immensely with the techniques used in the pattern!
Juego was my Spring 2013 Mystery KAL, Mystery Knit A Long's are always a blast to work on as they engender a fabulous sense of community and help expand those knitting skills. I think many of the people who have already finished their Juego's might not have even attempted it had they seen the finished photo first. This puppy was packed with technique!
I knit my Juego in SpaceCadetCreations Celeste Five Rings and Feather, it was my first time working with this yarn, and it won't be my last.... it handled the beads and bloomed beautifully when blocked!
