I was born on the island of Jamaica and migrated to the US at age 7. My mother taught me to crochet and sew at 8 years old I taught myself to knit from one of her books. Years later, I would learn that my mother knew how to knit but did not feel she was competent enough to teach me.
I stopped knitting and crocheting as a teenage but, started again about 12 years ago. I now knit or crochet almost daily. I also started designing crochet and knitted garments and accessories at that time. I am particularly fond of cable and color-work. I would call my design "esthetic classic with a twist."
When I am not knitting, crocheting or sewing, I share my passion for the needlearts by teaching others. I also own an online yarn store.
