Artist by calling, art historian by training, completely obsessed with yarn. The colors, the textures, the infinite possibilities within each skein...
I love knitting cables. I love knitting lace. Cables combined with lace are my idea of a knitting nirvana. I have been designing knits ever since I first picked up the needles about ten years ago; my first 'swatch' was a sweater for my baby boy. Since then my designs appeared in numerous publications, such as Interweave Knits, Jane Austen Knits, Twist Collective, Wool People, and Knitty.
I am a little bit of a nomad; originally from Europe, I've lived in five US states and two European countries. I've studied fashion design and I have an extensive background in studio arts and art history. All these travels and studies, along with my love of nature, continue to inspire my knitting.
I adore Ravelry and its incredible, friendly community. I've met more amazing and inspiring people here than I could have ever imagined, and many became real-life friends during my travels. So thank you for your support and all your kind words, the hearts and the stars, they mean a world to me ♥
I love to help make lace knitting fun and manageable even for the beginner lace knitter and almost all of my designs are very easy to customize. Knit what makes you happy, I always say. I am proud to have been called the Borg, because resistance is futile, and the Lace Vader. Welcome to the lace side...
