Through the years, I have been surrounded by incredibly talented women. Among them, my great grandmother, my grandmother, my mother, and a wonderful woman who was a friend of my mom's who taught me to knit when i was eight.
As the spark of creating grew, I explored classes, read books, and tried various techniques with yarn and needles. In spite of this dabbling across the knitting spectrum, I always seem to come back to Fair Isle and Aran designs. A fascination due in part to my first trip to Shetland and the Outer Hebrides where I took classes with both Alice Starmore and Kaffe Fassette. So you can see where my love of color comes from!
Now, after an undergraduate degree in architecture, a graduate degree in communication, and several years working in those two disciplines, I am able to put yarn, color, and design together full time. My world is filled with colorful yarn and charting software. A happy part of this life is the Kanuga Knitting and Quilting retreat which I coordinate and provide some of the instruction every January. this big fireplaces, creative people, and lots of fun!
Every day, i think of those very talented women....some are here...some have moved on...but all are with me in their own way. Thank you ladies.
