How Did I Start Designing?

My husband’s job transferred us to another state when my first daughter was 2.  We left all of our friends and family behind.  I picked up knitting as something to do and ultimately hoped to be able to sell my own designs (since I knew I needed to have rights to the design to legally sell them) on Etsy.  The designing took on a life of it’s own and now I primarily sell patterns, although, occasionally I stock my Etsy store with hand knits and other things I might be working on at the moment.

How Did You Meet Alicia Plummer of Two Little Plums?

Alicia and I met on Ravelry when she contacted me about modifying one of my patterns.  We really were kindred spirits right from the start.  We share a common faith in God and within just a few days of our first conversation, we both found out we were pregnant with our second baby girls!

What Inspires Your Designs?

There are so many things that I find inspiring.  Sometimes it’s something that I see when I’m out on a walk, sometimes it’s a great design element in one of my favorite pieces of existing clothing and sometimes, the yarn tells me what it wants to be!  In any case, I always design things that I actually want or need.

What Camera Do You Use?

I use a Canon Rebel T2i with a 50MM lens.
