“I’ve got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom.”
~ Thomas Carlyle

I’m a juggler frustrated by time:  mother, knitwear designer and teacher.

And because I have a love of art, math and craft, designing knitwear makes perfect sense for me. My designs have been published by many major publications in the US and abroad, by yarn companies, and independently as Paper Moon Knits.  

You can find my designs on Ravelry as Joan Forgione, here.
