Sivia Harding has worked with fiber and art since she can remember. Obsessed since youth, by adulthood she had dabbled in weaving, spinning, and dyeing among other activities, and came to knitting in the year 2000. Almost immediately, she began to design. She is known mainly for her exceptional lace and bead designs. Her patterns also include accessories, garments, and imaginative Moebius creations. She has been widely published in books and collections, including Jared Flood’s Wool People series, online magazines such as Twist Collective and Knitty, and on Ravelry as Sivia Harding Knit Design. She has been teaching at larger venues since 2009.
