Cynthia Wise discovered her love of knitting when her mother taught her to knit at the age of ten. Her first projects--a scarf, hat, and slippers--were created from loud pink variegated yarn on size 11 needles. Cynthia's childhood hobby has since flourished into a passion that has her constantly striving to develop her art.
After a debilitating injury left her unable to work as a chiropractor for several years, Cynthia concentrated her energies on designing, custom and production knitting, and learning new techniques. Although Cynthia is once again a practicing physician, she makes time to attend knitting classes and conferences and spend time with nature, to further draw out the artist inside.
Cynthia's versatile knitwear designs have been featured in numerous national magazines, such as Knitter's, Knit 'n Style, Cast On, and Machine Knitter's Source. She has designed patterns for companies such as Aurora Yarns, Cherry Tree Hill Yarn, and Schaefer Yarns, as well as for her company, Designs by Cynthia Wise.Review:
