I offer a full range of standard tech editing services to help make your knitting patterns more professional and bring you repeat customers, including:
- checking all stitch counts and measurements

I am certified as a technical editor through The Knitting Guild Association’s technical editing course, and have worked with both independent designers and yarn companies such as WEBS and Brooklyn Tweed.
I am also a designer myself – my work has been published in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Stripes: Making Stories, Spin Off, and others. Before becoming a designer, I worked as a research engineer, and have extensive experience in technical writing and editing. I am not a translator, but I am conversant in French, Spanish and Turkish.
