I first discovered Celtic knots at the age of 14 and have been enamored of their interweaving intricacy ever since. For years I filled my school notebooks with Celtic doodles, so discovering that I could translate them to knitting was an absolute delight!

About the Designer: Julie Linsenmeyer
I fell in love with Celtic knots at the age of 14. So, you can imagine my excitement when I realized I could apply these designs to knitting!
I developed my knitting skills over several years of chronic illness. While stuck in bed, the challenge of learning new techniques and creating things of beauty was one of my greatest sources of joy. Now that I’m healing, I take delight in many more things – such as cooking, kayaking, swimming, walks in the woods, and learning many more techniques for creating beautiful accessories (you can check out my handmade silk scarves and jewelry on Etsy). But knitting will always hold a special place in my heart.
