Design Tools for the Independent Knitter

More, as it happens...

Gracious, where to start?

Exciting new developments:
I was invited to teach at Stitches Midwest! 3 classes: The Wonders of Linen Stitch; Unpattern: Poncho, and Cuff Craze: New Twists on Sock Design.

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity, to say the least, and I'm looking forward to a junket back to the Midwest. My friend and colleague, Susanna Hansson (www.oneofusannas.com), is teaching a full boat of classes as well. Can't wait.

The website is up and mostly running!
www.2ndesign.com
Knitting buddy Libby (www.albatross.com) has been pulling my teeth to get some bare-bones information up there for the time being. Soon we will un-park www.unpatterns.com and get that rolling as well. Thanks for everyone's patience and early feedback, too.

I'm sending out a spring rush of pattern catalogs, so feel free to e-mail me if you would like one for your shop (wholesale orders only, please). If you're a knitter looking for my patterns, first of all THANK YOU -- e-mail me and I can send you a list of shops which currently carry my two pattern lines.

I'll be taking a teaching sabbatical in June and July to do some exciting pattern writing (and working on a few book ideas!)... and Michael and I will be taking some time to build a house on a piece of waterfront property we just bought.

No rest for the wicked, right?
Merrily, we work along!
