Tiny Russian Dolls & Twined Scandinavian Knitting

Michele Cheong learned the techniques of garment construction in Hong Kong and is a long time sewer. Her creations are known for their artful simplicity as seen in her regular contributions to A Needle Pulling Thread magazine.

More recently, 7 years ago she learned to knit and from her first knit stitch she began tackling patterns and techniques only experienced knitters were attempting. She has since become a master of yarn manipulation and excels at techniques like entrelac and twined knitting.
