Thanks for stopping by,

I'm Courtney -

I have lupus and a crippling introverted personality that is balanced only by my extraordinarily extroverted spouse and partner. He and I share our home with our two ever growing daughters and a menagerie of animals on a little half acre homestead in the making.

I'm also the author of the book, Family-Friendly Knits!  The book was a long-term goal that materialized far more quickly than expected.  You can find it at the Interweave store online or anywhere books are sold.  I'm currently working on my second book with Interweave - one that reflect my growth as a woman and a designer.  This book is due to be released in the fall of 2019!

I once used this space freely as a place to document my real life as a fierce woman, doting mother and wife, and fearless pattern drafter. As circumstances changed and I changed along with them, I lost my way here and felt my personal life was better left at that - personal.  I've been regrouping and I'm rediscovering a lot about myself, my people, and my path in the online world.

If you'd like to dive deeper, feel free to check out some of my past interviews.  You can find a listing HERE >>

Some of the things our family deals with on a daily basis are completely foreign to a good many. If you're interested in learning more about Trichotillomania or Lupus - or if you or someone you love is suffering with either, I've compiled a list of links I've found helpful.
