Jill Draper's Profile

About

Jill Draper makes stuff.
Lots of stuff.

In my shop you will find yarn, hand dyed by me - many of them made just for me in New York State, hand knitting patterns I've designed and every so often other little treasures I've created.

In addition to the stuff I sell here you can find my work in specialty boutiques, on rock & roll albums and various bodies. My hand knitting patterns have been published in books and magazines, most recently Interweave Knits, Knitting Today!, Knit 1 and "Find Your Style and Knit it Too!" by Sharon Turner. I have a BFA from Pratt Institute and since graduating have worked as a freelance designer in various mediums as well as a bookkeeper and bike delivery gal. Yup - a Jill of all trades.
