Annetarsia Knits

This is a new book written by Anne Berk, a master knitter and teacher. She has developed a new knitting technique that makes intarsia, a technique that is often considered very fussy and difficult, into something that is fun, fast, and easy. I was hired for this project in the late summer of 2012. Since then, the amazing team involved with creating this book has been working away, making sure that this was the best book it could be! This was the best learning experience for me, and has really motivated to make my designs that much better. Thank you Anne, for giving me this opportunity! For more information on Anne Berk and her book, Annetarsia Knits, visit her website. Also be sure to check out the guest blog post I wrote for Anne about my design process for Annetarsia Knits!

All pages, with the exception of the two covers and the last sample (the index) are displayed as two-page spreads. Copyright Anne Berk.

Dreaming of Shetland

Dreaming of Shetland  is an e-book of knitting patterns that is going to help fund Deborah Robson’s research of Shetland sheep. This is a project that I am especially excited about because it includes patterns by some of the biggest designers in knitting. I am so grateful to be able to help this very worthy cause. This is an e-book that is being released in portions, and not all of them are released yet! Check out this page for more information and to purchase the book.

Quadrangle

​​My senior year at Canisius College, I was lucky enough to be chosen to be the designer of the campus’s literary magazine, Quadrangle. It is a yearly publication that features the creative writing and artwork of students, alumni, faculty, and employees of the college. This was the 60th anniversary issue, so the E-Board decided that a theme of “time” was fitting. I designed the magazine with that theme in mind, and really tried to make our issue tie both the literature and the art together.
