I have 50+ years of knitting experience and immersion in the yarn industry. Over the past few years I have done numerous test knits and paid sample knitting for Emily Ringelman, Ranee Mueller, Diane Soucy of Knitting Pure and Simple, Andrea Sanchez, and Bruce Weinstein. I have also done lots of commission knitting for Provenance Mill Clothiers (2012-2014) and The Cashmere Cape (2017-present). What can I say, I love to knit! You can see photos of these projects in my Ravelry project page under the tabs "commission" and "sample knits".
As a designer myself, I understand the importance of communication and meeting deadlines. Samples and commissions take priority over my own designs. I design because there are some patterns that just have to be written! I do testing and sample knitting because I want to help designers make their patterns the best that they can be.
I’d have to say that my favorite part of designing is the knitting and I am enjoy filling my time with it.
