About Me

I'm originally from Ohio, USA but I moved to the UK in 2010. I took up knitting in 2007 and have been mad for yarn ever since. I knit, I spin, and I've also dabbled in crochet and dyeing. Outside of knitting, I work in marketing, and my interests include linguistics, ukulele, and photography.

Design Philosophy

This is my knitting mission statement: To knit interesting things, and to make the knitting interesting. From a process and project perspective, knitting should be fun - elegant, flowing designs, with interesting construction, and keep the seaming at a minimum. Top-down (or toe-up) in the round predominates, so we can try things on and modify as we go.
