I come from a long line of fibre-obsessed women, though my gran would probably be shocked by the size of my yarn stash. In the last few years, I have taken up spinning, which fascinates my husband and confuses my cats.
My work has been published in Twist Collective, Knit Now, and various Interweave publications. My self-published patterns are available through Ravelry, where I am known as k2cuss2 or sometimes The Cusser.
A transplant from Toronto via Canada’s west coast, I am adjusting to life in the Dirty South with the help of my very Southern husband. I am determined to master biscuit-making or die in the attempt.
About My Patterns
I’ve been writing knitting patterns for several years. All of my patterns have been tech edited and tested or have been reviewed by two tech editors to make sure you can enjoy your knitting, rather than wrestle with the instructions. In 2014 I started including an ‘About the yarn’ section, which describes the structure and characteristics of the yarn used in the sample(s) and gives tips on what to look for in a substitute yarn.
I respect the value of your knitting time, and strive to make my patterns easy to understand and error-free. If you do run into a problem or an error, please do not hesitate to contact me at the email address on the pattern or through the form on my Contact page. I generally reply to emails within 24 hours, usually much sooner. If an error slips through the editing process, I will fix it and get a corrected version out quickly, sending an update notice to anyone who bought through Ravelry.
If you’ve enjoyed knitting one of my patterns, let me know! I love seeing how fellow knitters interpret my designs, making a piece that is uniquely their own.
