In astounding company.

I truly am.

I feel… well, privileged isn’t a strong enough word, but I can’t think of a better one right now. I feel very, very privileged to be in the company of the utterly fantastic designers who brought us the sweaters in the current issue of Twist. And I couldn’t be more excited about my own design. I am planning on a longer post about the road that led to Twinflower, but things are pretty busy behind the scenes here right now. So for the moment. . .

. . . welcome, Twist readers! I hope you like what you find here. By way of introduction to those who haven’t been here before, I’m a thirty-something mother of two who adores both her math day-job and her creative hobby. Lately, I’ve been writing a series of tutorials on knitting to flatter your inherent shape, doing some self-published design work, and generally enjoying the summertime.

What’s been going on in your world?

    i could not get enough of this issue–every sweater more flattering (now that i know how to make mods, thanks to YOU) than the last! i love this one. i might make cityscape first just because i have a colorwork urge, but i can’t imagine how i’ll get them all made before the next issue :) great job!

    Twinflower is such a beautiful pattern! Of all the great patterns in the new issue, I think I’ll be making yours first.

    You work in maths? I didn’t know. I studied in math too and now work as a software project manager. My creativity level is far from yours! I’m going to Twist to see the whole garnment! Love the sleeves and the color! Congratulations!
