||Hi! I am glad that you have found my web "presence." For more than thirty years I knit for custom clients, and now I have put some of that experience into several books. The book theme is "Design Your Own," because the books are meant to liberate the creativity in all of us. With the proper tools to do the functional stuff, you can create any knit garment design or knit stitch design that you can imagine. You can, in fact, use the material in books #1 and #2 for any fabric, woven, knit, or crochet.
I try to help find yarns and sometimes make yarns available that have been out of production. There are Tamm color cards posted in the Yarn Catalog section.
