After working in various advertising agencies, I took a break to be home with my young daughters and fell into knitwear design, mostly by accident. I’d always been a knitter who couldn’t follow directions without changing things, so the idea of writing my own was pretty organic. My friends in my knitting group were the ones who encouraged me to start.
The opportunity to combine two of my favorite things – knitting and cocktails – into a career, while having the flexibility to raise my daughters, has been amazing. I design mostly women’s garments and accessories, and love using cables, lace, and little details to make designs that are classic and wearable, but just a bit unique.
