About Me

I am an avid Fair Isle knitter and designer, and I love playing with colors—as many as possible! My knitting life began about 20 years ago when I read a profile of Meg Swansen. She and Elizabeth Zimmermann generously shared their knitting knowledge and philosophy of fearless exploration through their books, articles, and videos. I’ve been lucky to take many classes on color theory and knitting techniques as I’ve explored the fascinating world of stranded colorwork knitting.

I created Feral Knitter so I could provide the Shetland wool yarn, patterns, and information that people need to knit their own stranded garments, whether traditional or wild, subdued or saturated, from a pattern or self-designed. And I love teaching people how to design their own individual garments!

My “warehouse”—150 square feet of yarn!— is located in Berkeley, California.

You can reach me at feralknitter@feralknitter.com.

You can find me on Ravelry as Feralknitter.

The Fearless Feral Knitters Ravelry group is a good place to post photos of your projects or ask questions.

Enjoy your knitting!
