About Loose Endings
Loose Endings is Charlie’s home studio in Plano, TX where with a bit of whimsy and a whole lot of geek, she designs patterns (crochet & knit) and curates a selection of yarn and other fibre goodies to share her passion for the fibre arts.

Who is Who at Loose Endings
“As a maker of Things, I create original work that enhances peoples lives, through creativity and self-expression. I share my passion for fiber arts through education and pattern design.”
Cheryl (Charlie to her friends) is a fiber artist & designer, a writer of fiction, a foodie & collector of champagne glasses… She has a mild obsession with owls, the color pink, the genre of steam-punk, books, and Harley Quinn. She is…A Creative Heart…
She never has the same color hair for very long and for the short while she worked at a local yarn store people often tried to find yarn that matched her hair.
Though left-handed, Charlie was taught to crochet right-handed at a young age. She was taught how to knit at school during her fourth grade year. Her first knitting project? A bright yellow teddy bear. It wasn’t until she was introduced to an independent yarn shop decades later that Charlie fell in love with the fiber arts.
Charlie is a member of the CGOA (Crochet Guild of America) and the TKGA (The Knitting Guild Association)
Pattern Oversight, Opinionated Furball
Henry is just as opinionated as his sister, however he prefers to focus on the technical aspects of design. Watching over Charlie as she writes the tech specs for her patterns, he has been known to add his own commentary during the drafting stages.
