Sharon Mooney

Knitting is my life! I've sold several thousand of my patterns online. I own Sharon Mooney Designs. I've designed for Cheryl Marschke, owner of Cherry Tree Hill, and for Bonnie Franz's "Stranded". One of my patterns was featured in Vogue Knitting's New and Knitworthy section. I have had designs in a Stitches West and two TNNA fashion shows (entered by Cherry Tree Hill). I've got patterns in the books "Special Little Knits from Just One Skein", "Broken Circle Trilogy, Volume 1", "Ribbon Style", and "60 Quick Knits From America's Yarn Shops". I've also designed for Jojoland, Brown Sheep, Frog Tree Yarns, Chameleon Colorworks, SWTC, Red Barn Yarn, LoveKnitting.com and Knit Picks, one of the designs having been featured in a Knit Picks catalog. I had a bootee and hat set published in Knit n Style's August 2010 issue. My book, "Amazing Lace", which contains 13 of my lace shawls and scarves using yummy Cherry Tree Hill yarns, published by Cooperative Press, it is available now through Amazon.com. I have a colorwork hat pattern called "Damask" in a Martingale Publishing book called "Knit Beanies". I also just published ebooks called "Easy and Quick Fingerless Mitts","The Lace Girls Volume 1", and "Spectacular Knitted Bracelets".

I like watercolor painting, gardening, and stitching of several types. I come from an Air Force family and my husband retired from the Air Force a while back. We live in southern California now and love it!

I have owned two successful yarn shops. I am now retired!
