About the girl
Katie Rose is a graduate student, fiber artist, and lover of life. Weekdays she can be found pestering research librarians to let her touch old Slavic manuscripts. Weekends, you’ll find her helping the knitting masses at Stitch House Dorchester, picking up dropped stitches, re-twisting mis-twisted cables, fabricating new patterns and using her awesome arithmetic skills to expertly advise on yarn substitutions.
In the odd hours in-between, she’s working on touching her head with her feet in yoga poses, spinning up yummy yarns on her Kromski Symphony wheel, sewing on her glorious 1918 Singer sewing machine, baking up sweets, writing flattering 3rd person descriptions for “about” pages, and cutting a rug on the dance floor with her amazingly talented and handsome husband, Jonathan and their delightful young son Jean-Luc. She’s available for demonstrations of all things odd and antiquated, including bagpipes and drop spindles, but only if her cat lets her out of the house.
