Hi! I am a former professional guitarist who is very grateful to be a full time knitting pattern designer. I made all my clothes and jewelry as a hippie girl many years ago, and had a little cottage industry of selling my handcrafts to friends in high school. I later turned to music and put down all the needles and hooks and soldering guns and whatnot for over 30 years. I picked up knitting again a few years ago, but really kicked into gear in earnest June 2008 when I used it as a quit smoking aid. And then I discovered lace and shawls.... and the rest is history, as they say.
