Knitting Designs By Silka Burgoyne

About July 20, 2010

Kaleido, aka Silka , is a mother of three adorable kids with a full time profession in IT industry. Silka or Silkie, for which most of her friends call her, started knitting since 2008. Silka caught herself ‘hacking’ patterns all the time when she knits; so about a couple years after she picked up her needle again, she decided to start designing her own patterns so that she wouldn’t have to ‘hack’ anymore. Silka started off designing purses, then venture off to design garment for her kids and herself; and now Silka is officially obsessed with knitting and designing. In between coding, baking and cooking for her family with special dietary needs (her daughter has severe food allergy), running around with her kids, eating and sleeping; Silka spends almost all her free time (if any) knitting and designing.

Silka has published some of her designs in Creative Knitting and Interweave Knits. Her designs are also available at Raverly.com, Patternfish, Interweave Store and her Etsy store. .
