KnittingGuru's Profile

About

My Mom taught me to knit and crochet when I was 4 years old. Since this was before I learned to read, I always designed my own patterns. I knit and crochet everyday and always have many projects going. I love thinking about people getting pleasure from wearing my knitwear.

The philosophy I bring to all my work is to create beautiful, flattering garments in wonderful, rich colors. When I design, knit and/or crochet something, I almost never repeat it. This means the buyer has the only one. It's like the difference between buying a print copy of a painting, and buying the original. In addition, I show my pieces on mannequins, not people, so that what you receive has never been worn.

My original patterns are written in English without abbreviations to make them easy to follow. Color photos, charts and close-ups are included. Tutorials help you through the stitch…

About

My Mom taught me to knit and crochet when I was 4 years old. Since this was before I learned to read, I always designed my own patterns. I knit and crochet everyday and always have many projects going. I love thinking about people getting pleasure from wearing my knitwear.

The philosophy I bring to all my work is to create beautiful, flattering garments in wonderful, rich colors. When I design, knit and/or crochet something, I almost never repeat it. This means the buyer has the only one. It's like the difference between buying a print copy of a painting, and buying the original. In addition, I show my pieces on mannequins, not people, so that what you receive has never been worn.

My original patterns are written in English without abbreviations to make them easy to follow. Color photos, charts and close-ups are included. Tutorials help you through the stitch and construction process. My previous experience as an educator and technical writer make my patterns special and guarantee your success.

I'm always happy to knit/crochet things to order. Just write to me and let me know if there's something you'd like me to custom make for you.

Everything in my shop is designed and made in my smoke-free, pet-free studio using only the very finest yarns. I use natural fibers, especially Merino wool, hand spun wool and cotton. These fibers don't harm the planet the way synthetics do and they are biodegradable as well as wearing best. Very occasionally I'll add a bit of irresistible novelty yarn. All of my work is impeccably finished inside and out, and my closures tend to be antique buttons or pins that I design to suit the garment.

If what you're looking for is something unique, high fashion, bold, artistic, feminine, and heirloom-quality, please stop by KnittingGuru often to see what's new. I guarantee you'll be happy with your purchase and will get lots of compliments too.
