About Connie Peng
Connie Peng, aka yellowcosmo, brings a sense of adventure and artistic sensibility to her knitwear designs. Born in Taipei, she moved with her family to San Francisco when she was 12. The experience of learning a new language and culture formed her deep curiosity. After moving to Lake Tahoe for snowboarding, she also went from studio art to teaching at a local college. Connie creates a wide range of sweaters and accessories designs using colorwork, cables, and lace. Coming from a studio art background, she often starts her designs with her own original motifs. Her first love is designing with colorwork, but she also enjoys designing with unique combinations of cables and lace. She studied art at University of California at Santa Cruz and later earned an MFA in painting at American University in Washington, DC.
