Lorna was inspired to become a knitter by both a mother and grandmother who knit beautiful things. By the late 80's Lorna was raising sheep, llamas and rabbits and making yarn from their fiber. Next she created a popular yarn company, Lorna's Laces, which she sold in 2003. Since then she's spent all of her time designing, teaching and writing. Lorna's designs can be found in many magazines, web sites and through dozens of yarn companies.
