About

from Nature to Knit

For as long as I can remember, I have knitted! When my oldest son was six months old, I made him a Max costume (from 'Where the Wild Things Are'), and someone I went to college with saw a picture of it and asked for one the following year. I had heard of Etsy and decided that this would be a good place to start. After a few costumes, I made some stockings, some stuffed toys, and finally some sweaters.
People loved the sweaters and there were very few places to find them in kids' sizes. From there, my business has steadily grown. Every year, I sell more sweaters, and I am constantly finding new ways to express my creativity through new patterns, new techniques, and new sources of inspiration -- from living in England and attending a course at the Royal School of Needlework, to my current home that overlooks the beautiful Canadian Rockies!
