I live in an area where we have all four seasons. This means that I have lots of time and opportunity for knitting. I have a degree in teaching and in anthropology. I was taught to knit by my Mother when I was a young girl of about ten. Fortunately, I took to knitting fairly easily and have been knitting ever since then. My designs are full of texture without being difficult. I try very hard to provide complete instructions. Many of my designs are inspired by my travels. My patterns are all test knit by volunteers on Ravelry.
I am currently designing mosaic hats, cowls, scarfs and shawls. I have designed some easy to knit shawls that are very versatile. I have traveled to some workshops around the country to keep current on designing. I volunteer to teach knitting at the Edward King House Senior Center in Newport, RI.
When I am not knitting or designing, I try to keep current on website design. I love to cook and do a bit of gardening. I have started to bake bread including sourdough and French bread. I do manage to get some exercise in every week. I love to walk by the ocean.
