Kathryn is a hand knitter, specializing in creating one-of-a-kind knitwear, accessories, and home decor. She knits exclusively with wool and other natural fibers from U.S. sources, dyed to reflect the colors of Whidbey Island sunsets, forests, and seaside towns. Each pattern is accompanied with a photo that shows her inspiration.

Kathryn's work is inspired by living on Whidbey Island, growing food and flowers, baking, reading, writing, and walking on the coast and in the forests. In her knitting she seeks to evoke these simple joys and pleasures and the leisurely pace of life surrounded by nature, wildlife, and laughing grandchildren.
