Whether teaching at a local yarn shop or at a national knitting convention, meeting new people and sharing the love of knitting is one of her greatest joys.
"Looking at Nate’s inspiration piece the design was simple. And sometimes simple is good! Working a row of stockinette at the color change makes for a smooth transition of stripes, even in ribbing."
