Sivia Harding is a person who loves knitting and all fiber pursuits, surprise! Other than knitting and spinning, her favorite activities are reading, history, old music and films from the 40s, messing around with her camera, and plonking on the ukulele, not necessarily in that order.

Sivia has always been interested in fiber arts, and when she was 14 years old, she participated in fiber classes at the High Museum in Atlanta, GA which resulted in pieces that were shown in the museum shop.  After this introduction, she was never without fiber work in one form or another, but didn’t find her way to knitting until the year 2000.  By that time, she had worked in the graphic design field for several years and had a degree in painting and printmaking, so it wasn’t a huge stretch to begin designing with my new skill.

After contacting members of the West Coast Knitters’ Guild online, she became a member. One day a large box full of fine undyed yarn was donated to the guild, and since no one seemed to know what to do with it, Sivia offered to handpaint the yarn and make lace shawls to sell as a fundraiser project for the Guild’s yearly charitable contribution. A discussion arose about whose patterns to use for these shawls, and since copyright was an issue, Sivia offered to design new ones. Several of her most popular lace shawl designs resulted from the impetus of this guild project.

Knitted lace is her first and enduring love, and when she learned how wonderfully lace combines with beads, she began incorporating beads into most of her designs. Socks and fingerless gloves have become the latest additions to her design repertoire.
