I'm a born and raised Alaskan, living in the Midwest with my husband and precocious toddler. A good friend taught me to knit in college over a decade ago, and I haven't stopped since! I mostly stuck to simple knits - hats and scarves - for years. When we moved to Iowa, I managed a yarn shop for a while and started knitting more complicated projects - sweaters, blankets, lace, etc. I opened my shop years ago, but in fall of 2015 I started devoting a lot of time and energy into creating new items and patterns. I love knitting little things for my daughter and creating original knitting patterns. My idea of a perfect afternoon involves a chilly day, hot coffee, knitting and Netflix.
