This is the announcement you've all been waiting new website This website has taken over a year to get off the ground, and at times I wondered whether it was the right thing to do. However I really really wanted one place where you could find my designs,  my finished items and me, and the blog was just not cutting it for me.

Well, Mr. Flood and his team over at Brooklyn Tweed have given us a wonderful way to welcome fall (A.K.A knitting season) with 18 mouth-watering designs in the BT FALL 12 collection.
