Welcome to Twitchy Design! I’m Keri.
I’m a bit obsessed with all things crafty! Even as a very little girl, I’ve always been making something. I am especially drawn to fiber – strings of any sort, tufts of unspun fiber, scraps of fabric, etc. Fiber is so central to humanity, since the very beginning; a foundation of civilization, the simple act of twisting a few strands of something together.
I taught myself to sew with doll clothes, a needle, and thread before I started school. I was 8 when I learned to crochet from a 1960s McCalls magazine while on a road trip to Arkansas to see my Great Aunt Gert. I was a senior in high school when I finally started knitting with a friend in English class. And my most recent obsession, spinning, I picked up when my dad sent me my step-mother’s wheel in a care package. I enlisted my generous friend, Bohoknitterchic, to answer questions and troubleshoot for me.
I love a challenge! So in all my crafting, I am always trying to learn a new technique, or tweak an old one into something completely different. Along the way, I’ve honed my skills and creativity, experienced some amazing “Ah ha!” moments, and created some wonderful pieces. Twitchy Designs will document these crafty wanderings.
