” I believe that we are stronger together. When we respect each other, listen, learn, and educate, we can lift each other up and thrive as humans. All are welcome here, regardless of gender identity, race, age, belief system, or crafting style. I’m the former Yarn Editor at Vogue Knitting, and worked in the film and TV industry for years in the art department making crafts, props, and graphics. In the past I’ve done freelance animation for HBO and at Martha Stewart making crafty things for the magazine.
Currently writing and editing knitting books, appearing as a regular guest on Knitting Daily TV, teaching Fair Isle classes on Blueprint/Craftsy, freelance designing, and teaching as many people to knit across the globe as possible.
I like to wear stranded colorwork hats, am a firm believer in bright colors, and love a good lacy trim.”
