Allison Judge began her knitting career when the youngest of her 3 daughters turned 2. She figured she'd never get to Mother Heaven if she didn't start hand making sweaters for her girls. Within a few years she'd also taken up spinning and weaving. She was lucky enough to have patterns published in knitting magazines and has a few patterns available through her business called knittinIt. After being store manager for Jimmy Beans Wool for over 3 years, she retired to give herself more time to play with fiber and to teach knitting and spinning. She currently is again gainfully employed by Jimmy Beans Wool, writes occasional book reviews and continues to knit for her daughters and very patient husband.
"My initial thought behind the slipper socks I designed was - WOW - I could toss so many colors into the knitting, plus the detail of "braided" knitting, a Norwegian tradition. The colorful socks were great, but I ended up toning down the socks to our national colors - red, white, blue. Much more sophisticated. And sorry, K.C. - the fleece lining is missing in these, but I believe they will be quite comfortable and cozy."
