My name is Maria Isabel, I started knitting and crocheting when I was a young girl. My mom is my first and best teacher. Starting with scarves I discovered the beautiful world of this craft. But it was when I finished my degree in Information Design that I really started getting more into knitting and crocheting techniques. I attended several lessons in local yarn stores and soon was able to follow patterns both in spanish and english. Then I started creating my own designs and found out I could also write the instructions for them when someone asked me to. I also became a knitting teacher in one of those LYS learning even more from each student that comes into this world. So now Im taking the next step into publishing my patterns and sharing my ideas. Hope you like them.
