1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?
My grandmother first introduced me to knitting when I was a young girl, but I didnít become passionate about it until the early 1990ís, when I was looking for a fun new hobby while at the same time working in the fast-paced city.
2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?
I love designing for kids because they are so small. You can really get creative with kids -- they can wear anything!
3 What are you most known for?
Designing for kids is where Iíve found a niche for myself.
4 How do you jump-start your creativity?
Swatching with new and exciting yarns, attending TNNA (The National NeedleArts Association) twice a year, flipping through knitting books, fashion magazines, and also surfing online to see whatís new and exciting in the fashion world.
5 What season inspires you the most?
Fall inspires me the most. I love earthy colors and there are so many more silhoutte ideas to choose from when the weather starts to get chillier. Itís tough to wear a knitted garment in the summer, especially in Florida!
6 On average, how many new patterns do you design each year?
I design around eight new patterns per year.
7 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?
Iím pretty addicted to knitting. I get really excited about incorporating other mediums into my designs -- embroidery, appliquť, beading, and fabric. Embellishing a knitted piece with various other elements really adds richness and dimension.
8 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
Going for a morning walk with my husband, Jay, and son London, watching Sunday Morning on CBS, then heading out to the gym to have a nice extended workout session, and then topping it off with some yoga and meditation.
9 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?
Tape measure, calculator, and definitely knitting needles (without those Iím out of luck!).
