Gayle Roehm devotes herself to fiber arts and happily spends her days with yarn and needles.

Gayle teaches at knitting gatherings around the country, and occasionally publishes her own designs.

Reviews

"Originally published more than two decades ago and appearing for the first time in English, 250 Japanese Knitting Stitches by Hitomi Shida follows the author's Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible...Gayle Roehm, a knitting instructor who focuses on Japanese patterns, translated the text in both books; the stitch diagrams, however, use symbols only and require no knowledge of Japanese." -Publishers Weekly
"This is mindful, challenging knitting at its best, and this translation opens up a world of Japanese knitting charts to English speakers." -Library Journal
"Knot stitch is one of those little tweaks that turn a basic project into a one of a kind creation. It is used quite often in the elaborate stitch patterns described in the book 250 Japanese Knitting Stitches by Hitomi Shida." -10 Rows a Day blog
"This is mindful, challenging knitting at its best, and this translation opens up a world of Japanese knitting charts to English speakers." -Library Journal
