my story

I’ve been a knitter and writer since I was a little kid. My grandmother taught me to knit on her chenille couch in 1970s New Jersey. Since then, I’ve brought together thousands of knitters through knitalongs, the Indie Designer Gift-A-Long, books and essays about the crafting life, and 100+ knitting designs.

In 2011, I challenged myself to write a novel, and today I’m a novelist, too. I write epic love stories that take place in fictional Viking worlds.
