I love knitting, nature, cats and a little zen.   Sometimes there are only moments when I can enjoy these.

I am inspired by designs and yarns and knit for family, friends or ‘just because.’  I use quality wool, often merino wool, or wool blends.   I love knitting with hand dyed yarns from local artisan dyers.

My granddaughter Anny names all of the animals I make.  I love how she knows an animal’s name right away.  If you take a look at Phil the teddy bear, you’ll see what I mean!

My sister Nancy, daughter Kate and good friend Nancy V are always weighing-in when I need another set of eyes. Come to think of it, everyone gets involved — my mother, hubby, nieces, other friends…. So much fun!

My niece Melanie Sager Phillips painted this gorgeous dreamy painting for me.
