As a designer in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long 2015 and 2016 I have published many lace designs and worked with multiple knitters.
Many years ago I learned knitting in school starting the obligatory stockinette scarf. Well, the scarf never made it to a finished object.
During early university studies I came back to knitting, starting with complicated lace shawls, and became addicted to lace knitting since. Knitting from finished pattern went boring pretty soon and I started to change patterns. One day I got to know a independent designer I admired for some time. She told me that I could create my own patterns too.
From this point I started to write my ideas down properly and got them tested. To date there are twenty patterns and growing published by me.
