We are delighted to announce that Karen Moffett @sleepydragonworkshop has a design in Issue 1 | Lace.
Karen and her child KE (who models Karen’s design for the e-zine) make finished fiber art objects and patterns inspired by fantasy, sci-fi, and nature.
Several years ago Karen discovered knitting as a way to stave off the boredom and mental health effects of waiting for a workable cocktail of drugs to treat her newly diagnosed autoimmune diseases.
Knitting quickly turned into designing, and she started @arohaknits Swatch Studio, Babs’s @yarn_academy, writing patterns, learning new techniques, and gradually adding to the complexity of her designs.
But that’s not where Karen’s story ends.
Just as she was beginning to find a balance with her health challenges, her second child KE, began really struggling with their identity as well as their mental health.
But that’s in the next post…. coming soon![Image description: Karen sits outside with trees behind her. She looks with a soft smile towards the camera. The text yarn people and designer appear in white along the edges of the photo.]
