About

Hey,
Thanks for stoppin' in. I'm a photographer turned knitter/crafter. Making things is my love.

I started my business early on in the 4th grade making friendship bracelets and worry dolls for sale. I think I sold them for something like 50¢ apiece. Little did I know that future me would be making things and selling them again... this time wising up and factoring a little profit in, but still creating things from the heart.

I moved to Brooklyn in the summer of 2008 when I got into the Renegade Craft Fair (my first show ever!), and I've been doing KnitKnit as my gig ever since then. I also teach needle felt classes on occasion, so please drop me a line if you're interested.

I enjoy adding a bit of fiber to everything, and making things with funny, and sometimes clever, twists…

KnitKnit Eco facts:
I use yarn from a family owned yarn mill in Nebraska that now uses 90% less water in their yarn production. Go green! Other materials are purchased at local or US based supply shops & small businesses. Yarn and fabric scraps are saved for future projects so that every little bit gets used. I use Eco Felt in some of my pieces, which is made from post consumer recycled water bottles. I also ship via USPS Priority Mail for domestic orders which uses recycled cardboard for their packaging.

And of course, everything is handmade here in Brooklyn, NY.
