My name is Mandy Powers, and I like to knit. I’ve been knitting since 2003, when my sister gave me some leftover yarn and aluminum needles to use. I soon discovered bamboo was much more my style, and I’ve been knitting like crazy ever since.
I prefer wool.
I have a husband (he is lovely, and rarely complains about all the yarn) and two kids (Jerry is 9, Maggie is 5). The kids are willing handknit models. The husband usually isn’t.
In the winter of 2008, I started teaching knitting classes in Greensboro and High Point, North Carolina. If you would like to know more about my teaching schedule, please visit my classes page.
My first book, a collection of twelve patterns for hats and mittens, was published in October 2010. The collection is entirely self-published. You can learn more about it on The Red Collection page.
