Much like Edward Scissor-hands, I am Cathy Needle-fingers; It's hard for me not to be knitting. My Latvian grandmother taught me how; I only wish that she knew how it has defined my life. Knitting is a process of constant exploration. I am particularly interested in new ways of shaping and sculpting - in minimalist fashion - versus surface texture, but delight when new ideas arise no matter. Next up is a sequel to 'Cowlgirls' - can one ever have too many?

My studio is in New York City, but come summer, gardening competes with the needles (Cathy Spade-hands?)  in a village located in the northwest corner of Connecticut.
