Síle Thiels


Newfoundland designer Síle (“she-la”) Thiels is an accomplished Irish dancer and knitter. Síle is happiest when combining those two loves, hence the name of Síle’s company, Knit Dance Repeat. Dancers will love Síle’s patterns, as will those who love to knit cables and other textures. Patterns are available on Síle’s site and on LoveCrafts.
