Deborah Carpenter

Deborah enjoys a good challenge, whether that’s mountain biking, rock climbing or designing fun crochet patterns.  She finds inspiration almost everywhere and enjoys playing with stitches and techniques to create practical or whimsical designs. Deborah and her twin sister learned to crochet from their grandmother as teenagers, but didn’t start designing until 2011 when they opened up shop as Yarnovations.com.  Deborah taught elementary and middle school in the States and abroad for several years before returning to Colorado to marry. Crocheting is both relaxing and stimulating as she raises two active young sons.
