Hello! I’m Patty McGuire, Pattymac for short — full-time artist (photographer, knitwear designer, maker, cook) dog enthusiast, and teacher. I live in sunny Virginia Beach, Virginia which is also my hometown (At one point, I spent 7 years in the mountains outside of Charlottesville, but missed living near the water.) What’s up with all the knitting? I knit because it makes me feel happy, hopeful, and alive. It makes me feel more connected to the natural world and has given me incredible appreciation for all things handmade.
My name is Patty McGuire, and I call my business Pattymac Knits. I have a few knitting patterns published, and am working on releasing all the ones I have sitting in notebooks. My background is in photography and I decided to use that skill to make the best possible blog. I write about yarn crafting and knitting specifically.
