All knitwear designers do not just decide to become Knitwear Designers.

Vignettes of my many roles along my knitting journey include:

Knitter Helps Knitters - I have decades of experience working in yarn stores.

Maker of New Knitters - By sharing my enthusiasm for knitting, I have converted hundreds of "normal" people into knitters.

Therapist to Knitters - From my psychology background, I feel listening is a very important part of teaching.

Knitter Becomes Crochetier - Several years ago, I learned how to crochet and I was reminded on HOW to learn.

Knitters Ask Astor - I have gained a reputation for being a knitting problem solver.
