une tricoteuse nommée allison

a knitter named allison (who also does other stuff)

About December 10, 2008

I’m a 30 year old knitter, writer, crafter, public relations person, graduate student and female human being living in Lexington, Ky. I hand-dye yarns, write knitting patterns and sell my wares at http://southerngirlknits.etsy.com. In my non-crafty life I work in public relations and am a doctoral student in the Educational Policy and Evaluation program at the University of Kentucky, studying higher ed administration. Creative work is my stress release. I’m very interested in history and read a lot of biographies. I’m definitely an Anglophile, and would walk a mile for a good cuppa Earl Grey. I’m also fascinated by mid-century retro kitsch and vintage collectibles. You can find me on Ravelry as PinkChocolate, and on Etsy as SouthernGirlKnits.
