Brigitte Elliott
Brigitte Elliott has been knitting since age 9. She has a degree in fine art and spent much of her adult life raising three children and supporting her husband'€™s business. Five years ago, when her kids were grown and her husband nearly retired, she fell in love with alpacas and their yarns, acquired several, and her passion for knitting was resurrected.

She began teaching in knitting stores in both Colorado and Florida. In 2010, she found an opportunity to learn a '€œnew'€ and exciting technique. It was so innovative that she went to Germany to learn Swing-Knitting from its creator and secured the rights to teach the technique in the U.S.A. After presenting the technique at TNNA Phoenix 2012, a surge of interest has launched invitations from yarn shops all over the U.S. Brigitte has also written several of her own patterns. She continues to create new works of art for her own Swing Knits®, as well as Skacel Collection, Inc and Knitter's Magazine.
