Andrea is one of the many who was lucky enough to learn how to knit as a child from her grandma.
By her late teens, guided by the wisdom of the great Elizabeth Zimmerman and her many books, she began trying to work out her own patterns.
After leaving her life as a pastry chef to start a family with her husband, her hands found the necessary freedom to begin creating with fiber instead of flour. She focuses on designing knits to fit the modern wardrobe – fun to knit and easy to wear, with clear directions for every level of knitter. She believes in enjoying every stitch and wearing at least one hand knit everyday! Andrea has a great love for indulging in new techniques and skills and then sharing them with other knitters thru her patterns and workshops.
Her goal is to leave knitters feeling empowered and inspired, and wrapped up in their own beautiful knits!
