Inge Herre Deneen

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 and to design sweaters, cardigans and other knitwear. She loves to experiment with texture and color.

Inge has taught knitting and fiber arts since 2009, first in Alexandria, VA and more recently in Indiana and Michigan. In 2013 she launched “fiber accent”, a line of hand dyed yarns and fibers available at Just Goods.
