Knit

I learned to knit years ago, but it wasn’t until I began working at a small, local yarn shop, called Northwind Book & Fiber, that I added knitting to my professional portfolio. Therefore, knitting is somewhat new to me…compared to over 25 years of weaving! I started as many knitters do, learning the basics, trying out new patterns, and with enthusiasm, tested new stitches and increasingly more difficult patterns. Soon, I discovered that I’m not as interested in the complicated stitches and patterns, but rater, I enjoy the basic knitting techniques while adding my own design to each piece. 

This knit portfolio includes a handful of my favorite designs from the hat, to the cowl, and finally, the mitts. Each piece is designed with an inspiration, and each has been tested against the cool temperatures of Northern Wisconsin - and passed!

Additionally, I strive to work with yarn companies that use sustainable practices and locally sourced fleece. This practice is important to me; therefore, it is important to my brand.

 Custom orders are available. Patterns and designs may soon be available for purchase on Ravelry or Etsy. Stay tuned!
