Katie's Profile

About

I'm Katie. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was pretty small. I enjoy making a variety of knitted goodies, from wooly sweaters to felted animals to Fair Isle hats, but I especially relish knitting socks. I love using tiny needles, intricate stitch patterns, and interesting construction methods to create a finished project in a relatively short amount of time.

After all that effort, though, why hide socks away in shoes? The result: put the fun of handknit socks on the outside of your sneaks! Every pair of shoes that I make is individually crafted and I enjoy each step in the process. I have lots of ideas for future sneaks; please feel free to share your ideas with me, too! I am always up for a challenge.

I'm a member of Etsy Maine Team. You can also find me on Facebook and Ravelry (username: prettysneaky).
