This website is a spot for me to not only document my creative process, but to share what I've made with you. I'm a long-time fiber artist. Until recently, I've focused on writing knitting patterns and books about knitting, as well as teaching about knitting both in person and online.
I'm really a lifelong creative, and I started out on the sewing machine. My parents are both super crafty, and I just grew up making my own clothes, sewing my own curtains and bedding, cutting my own hair...all of that stuff.
I have a lifelong interest in education, as well. I have a PhD in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Johns Hopkins University, I'm a Carnegie Fellow, and a Max-Planck Fellow! And, I recently left a wonderful-yet-intense job helping to grow Craftsy.com, the largest online source for craft education online, to move to Las Cruces, NM, to be with my mom through some pretty intense hip surgeries.
While I have the time and space, I'm just kind of seeing where art, education, and business intersect for me. Here, you'll find some of the results of my experiments (and those of my friends) for sale in my shop. You'll also find knitting tutorials and videos, and get information about new patterns as they're released.
