Inge Herre Deneen learned to knit as a child growing up in Germany, knitting through high school and college. Not about to leave her needles behind when she moved to the United States, she safely tucked them away in her luggage. Developing her own patterns began as a necessity, but soon she realized she had a valuable skill that allowed her to customize her knitting.
Inge has taught knitting and fiber arts since 2009, starting in the Washington, DC, area. She has designed knitting patterns, translated instructions for Verena and Anna magazines and offered professional finishing services. She taught at the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival two years in a row.
In 2015 Inge introduced Fiber Arts at Good Shepherd Montessori School in South Bend, where students as young as six, knit, crochet, spin, and felt wool.
