I have been knitting and crocheting since I was a child, but rarely created any children’s items – just did not have much motivation. But when I had my own daughter, I started imagining all the cute things Kristin could wear and this is how I started designing children’s clothes... And then I realized that it was exactly what I wanted to do in my life.
In the past several years, I’ve created and sold hundreds of custom-made (mostly one of a kind) items online. However, one day I realized that I have too much on my plate and couldn’t keep up with all orders anymore. I thought if I started writing patterns, I could make something just once and let other knitters and crocheters make the garments by themselves, and even sell finished projects made from my patterns. I really feel that it was the right direction to take, and I’ve been so blessed by this experience. Somebody else making something out of what I’ve created—that’s what makes me happiest!
I enjoy knitting and crocheting at my bright studio in Seattle, Washington, with my best helper—adorable tiny Chihuahua Pixie—on my lap. There I create happy-fashion designs by combining colors, textures and materials. My own line of 100+ patterns and, published in July 2015, series of books Imagical Seasons™, came to light as a result of these experiments and aspirations. Thank you so much for your interest in my patterns! Somebody else making something out of what I’ve created—that’s what makes me happiest!
