In my teaching and design work in the fiber arts (mainly crochet and knitting), I emphasize
garment designs that are light, comfortable, and easy to wear, like those you see on this page.
I hope you'll enjoy browsing this site, where you'll find:
-- crochet and knitting patterns you can order to make items of my own design, from sweaters to ponchos, that are classic without being stodgy, fun but not radical. For quickest and easiest ordering, try my Ravelry page.
-- a calendar of upcoming classes and workshops I'll be teaching in the Washington D.C. area and at fiber arts gatherings all around the country.
-- occasional offers of great tools and equipment.
-- yarn/pattern kits for producing some accessories (right now, see my Kits that let you create your own one-of-a-kind Painted Shawl (photo at right) in a variety of complementary colors to match your personal palette.
-- free patterns and hints ; links to other useful sites; corrections , when needed; and other information.
