Logo has the words Knitting Tales next to a cartoon sheep Nora Howley is a U.S. based designer and writer. “My design work is primarily colorwork, and I am exploring bits of knitting history. My patterns are designed to tell a story, evoking places, people, and events,” Nora says. “I am working on making my patterns Low-Vision accessible through large print and screen-reader tested patterns with colorwork written out.” Patterns have clearly marked links to Ravelry or Payhip. The mystery links go to free patterns on Nora’s website.
