I first learned to knit at age 12, in a packed car on a family trip to Stratford, Ontario. I learned the long-tail cast on and the knit stitch, and I knit a long, long scarf before setting it down in favour of other assorted crafts – beading, sculpting, sewing, cross stitch. Years later, I was inspired to pick it up again when I saw a woman knitting on the bus. This time, I was ready to learn everything I could about this amazing craft.
In my work, I strive to design garments and accessories that are both classic and modern, as well as flattering, comfortable, and above all wearable. I do my best to provide detailed, clear instructions and lots of sizes so that you can have the most enjoyable experience possible and love what you create.
In addition to knitting, I also crochet, spin, try to grow plants, and occasionally sew. I also adore anything to do with food and cooking. I take many of my photos with my Nikon D5100 and iPhone 6. I live in Toronto with my partner and a lot of yarn.
