Denise Bell
Denise is the designer behind two books, each of which draws inspiration from a specific region and its culture. Her first book, Ultima Thule, is set in the Shetland Islands off the north coast of mainland Scotland, and features incredible lacework inspired by life on the islands. Her Kailyard shawl draws gasps when it is unfurled. Her second book, Deep Roots, considers the landscape and personalities of the Flint Hills of Chase County, Kansas, a unique tallgrass prairie uninterrupted by mechanized agriculture. Along with these two books, Denise has designed lace shawls, skirts, colorwork vests, sweaters, and other interesting garments.

Her teaching experience includes events from coast to coast and border to border at large conventions, small retreats, guilds, and yarn shops. Denise's goal is to encourage students at all levels to be intrepid and eclectic in their knitting adventures.


Denise and her husband Chris run Lost City Knits, a small independent company named for the town nearest their Eastern Oklahoma farm.
