mindful designs for the yarn-conscious knitter
Originally from England, I now find my home in the Northern hills of Vermont where my husband and I, along with our daughter, have a goat dairy farm.
I taught myself how to knit one dark winter living in Finland. It came so easily and naturally it seemed like I knew how to all along (perhaps my Nanny’s genes have something to do with that), and I have been knitting ever since.
What began as a naturally dyed yarn business encouraged me into the world of knitwear design, and it is this which I focus on now. I love to celebrate simple stitches with beautiful yarn, clean shapes with delicate details. My time - our time - is precious and I work with only local, thoughtful yarns with a transparent. We are blessed to live in a time when many people, such as farmers and other yarn curators, believe the same and we have access to a wide range of consciously grown and processed fibers. So you will notice in my knitting I only work with domestic, organic, or naturally dyed yarns.
