Debbie Stone will talk to us about gauge, fabric and ease.
Having learned to knit and crochet at an early age from both of her grandmothers, fiber arts have always been an important part of Debbi's life. Her designs can be found on Ravelry at The Stitches Of My Life Designs where she goes by the name of cockeyed, for obvious reasons. She also collaborates on designs with Marcy Vandale under the label Adventure Du Jour Designs, all of which can be found on Ravelry as well. Along with designing, Debbi teaches knitting and technology classes at local yarn shops in the Portland area. She also has partnered with Stephanie Pearl-McPhee and co-hosts the 3 Strung Along knitting/spinning retreats each year held at The Resort at Port Ludlow in Port Ludlow, Washington where she teaches as well.
