A Southern girl born in Mississippi, I began knitting when I saw a fellow teacher knitting in the teachers' lounge and wanted to learn. Though I'm lefthanded, I knit righthanded because she couldn't figure out how to teach me lefthanded.

I also did software testing, tech editing, and pattern designing for Carole Wulster of Knitting Software/Sweater Wizard.I occasionally do a pattern of my own design, but I much prefer relaxing and following someone else’s pattern.My other passion besides knitting is reading. I work for my daughter when needed at the independent bookstore fiction addiction<http://www.fiction-addiction.com/> . I do her mystery reviews for the newsletter.

My love of fiber arts started at an early age while playing under my Grannies quilt frame, watching her spin yarn and weave on her loom. My mother was an excellent seamstress and loved to individualize her creations so it was only natural that I was drawn to wearable fiber arts. Add that to a love of color and making unique jewelry, I started Bird Mountain Creations. Then teaching was a natural progression. My favorite part of teaching is to see the creative side of others and the confidence built and shared in the class. And of course, the smiles upon seeing their Work of Art!

One summer about 5 years ago, my family relocated to Kansas. I got a wild hair and decided to teach myself how to knit. Who would have thought it would turn into a crazy obsession and become an anchor for my sanity and a staple in my daily life. I have a fairly busy life and work as a corporate accountant. Knitting, particularly complex patterns, provides a means for funneling my thoughts into a single task and allowing my mind to take a break from the constant bombardment of thoughts and distractions.

I love to learn and find that knitting with others is a great way to do this. I often have to go to YouTube to refresh my memory on techniques. Most of my projects are " altered" because I hate having extra yarn. Professionally, I began my work life as a hospital architect and changed careers mid life.
