About Me

About Me

I am a lifelong fiber artist and educator living with my husband and three teens in Santa Cruz, California.  I design a variety of knitted objects with a special love for shawls and wraps and enjoy working with simple shapes and unique design features.  I offer private lessons and classes ranging from introductory knitting classes to classes on lace shawl design.  I also work as a consultant to other knit and crochet instructors on designing classes and handouts for effective instruction.

In my “day job,” I have been an elementary classroom teacher since 1994 and have worked with teachers developing curriculum and assessment since 1997.  I have a current California teaching credential and a certificate for teaching adult learners.

I also work with hand cranked circular sock machines as well as flat bed knitting machines and I weave and spin!

You can find me on Facebook, Ravelry, and Instagram.

My patterns are available through a variety of sources.
