About Me

About Me

I am a lifelong fiber artist and educator living with my husband and three children in Santa Cruz, California.  I design a variety of knitted objects with an emphasis on 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.  You can find out more about my local teaching schedule at santacruzknitting.com.  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.

My newest interest is in working with hand cranked circular sock machines.

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

My patterns are available through Ravelry and Knit Picks.
