Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton
Since there are painters and crafters on both sides of her family, it is not strange that Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton has applied her talent in combining colors and structure to designing handknits. Hamilton’s artistic endeavors began in her childhood, and she started selling her creations in her mid-teens. A true multi-crafter, she is proficient at embroidery, macramé and crochet but finally settled on handknitting at the age of 22. Her knitting career started in New York where she developed her talent during the early 80’s. There she designed for the knitting magazines and a private clientele as well as sold her handknits to boutiques in Manhattan. The high point of her time in NY was a handknit collection under her own label that was sold to select boutiques in 20 states from Florida to Alaska.

The move over the Atlantic to Mariefred, Sweden gave her the peace and harmony to raise a family and develop her business and artistic creativity even further. Cornelia has written numerous articles on Swedish knitters and knitting for the American market and has 13 pattern books to her name, including Noro: Meet the Man published by Soho Publishing in the fall of 2009. Her latest design collection, Reflections, features the Poems Collection from Universal Yarn.

With her sons grown, she now divides her time between Mariefred and Atlanta designing and developing her own yarn line, Heaven's Hand.
