Aimee Abernathy: Superstar Rock God

Why, yes. I did, in fact, knit that sweater.


About Aimee Abernathy

Nearly a decade ago, I was diagnosed with Lupus.  (Contrary to Dr. House’s assertations, sometimes, it really is Lupus.  Don’t get me started.)

After my diagnosis, I needed something to do with my hands.  I picked up a book on knitting, and that’s all it took — I was hooked.  Knitting has kept me sane in doctor’s offices, lines at the post office, and long conference calls for my day job (which isn’t, surprisingly, about knitting.)  Knitting was a gateway drug for me, like it is for many, leading to spinning and, eventually, weaving, as well.

The textile arts have taken me to some great places and has led me into places I wouldn’t have ordinarily gone.  I’ve been able to learn from fantastic knitters like Charlene Schurch, Wendy Johnson, and Cookie A., and I’ve taught knitters in several states, too.  See my classes page for just some of the places I’ve taught.

When I’m not globetrotting for my job or for my teaching, Charlotte, NC is home, and Yarnhouse in NoDa is my LYS, where I also occasionally teach.

Find me on Ravelry as “funfairiegirl”.

Hi Aimee, I’m taking your double knit class at SAFF and wanted to choose yarn colors for the project but what is the project? Thought I could better choose what to bring if I knew what we will be making. Can you let me know? Thank you!!!
