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.

Teaching others how to express themselves through highly unique, personal knitting is my passion! I wrote The Joy of Color: Fair Isle Knitting Your Way to let everyone have access to my workshops, even if they can’t come in person.

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!
