I live in Southern Maine with my husband and two young children. I studied fibers, photography and sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art where I received my B.F.A.  I also hold a M.Ed. from Antioch University.  I am an early childhood educator, mama, wife, artist, crafter, knitter, home chef and gardener.  This is where I catalog pieces of those ventures.

My husband taught me to knit when we were both 15 (high school sweethearts!), and I’ve been knitting ever since. In addition to self publishing patterns, my designs have been published in Knitscene, Knit.Purl, Interweave Knits, Pom Pom Quarterly and Quince & Co.  You can view my self published knitting patterns here or on Ravelry, and view all of my designs on my Ravelry Designer Page.  Come join the Thread & Ladle Ravelry Group to chat knitting & cooking, for questions regarding patterns, and to participate in Knit Along’s and pattern tests!

Please get in touch!  I'm on Instagram & Pinterest: @threadandladle.  You can find me on Ravelry at beatrice2009 or reach me by email:
