About Me

Welcome to Elegant Economy Designs! I’m so glad you stopped by! If you’ve read even one or two posts you see that I just love to ramble about knitting. I’ve been knitting for almost 20 years, I think (crazy!), but became utterly obsessed in 2008.

I started designing for myself when I couldn’t find the perfect pattern for whatever it was I wanted to make. After knitting a few of these up, I couldn’t resist the challenge of trying to develop my patterns to sell through Ravelry. I published my first set of patterns in April 2011. It’s a ton of work, but I find the whole process really rewarding. There is something magical about seeing a sketch turn into exactly the knitted garment I imagined, and then to make it available for other knitters to reproduce and reinterpret.

Subscribe to my blog, and you’ll know when new designs are in the works, what new technique I’m playing with, and what random knitting topic happens to be on my mind. I also like to ask my readers (that means you!) their thoughts and opinions about various knitting related quandaries. Click on this link and it’ll ask you for your email address. You can also use your favorite RSS reader to keep track of blog updates.

When you do subscribe, drop me a note (eleganteconomy at gmail dot com), comment, or message me on ravelry (eleganteconomy), I’d love to know a little bit about you and what drives your knitting passion!
