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.

Go Giants!

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.

I started designing patterns in the Spring of ’08; you can find a list of all my patterns on my patterns page. For wholesale inquiries, please visit my wholesale page.

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.
