Handmade knit and crochet accessories, that are made for the modern woman, who enjoys adding pops of color to her wardrobe.

Who comes to mind, when you think of a person who knits? Is this person someone who may be a grandparent? Is their favorite place to knit, sitting in their rocking chair with a hot cup of tea? Aren’t stereotypes the worst?! Well that isn’t Naima Barnes. She doesn’t fit that description at all (although, she does love a nice cup of tea, especially pomegranate tea).

Naima began knitting as a way to practice self care. She jumped head first into it when she decided that she needed a hobby to occupy her time after work. She taught herself by watching YouTube videos over and over again to learn different stitches. Naima instantly fell in love with being able to make something with her own two hands and wanted to create for others. She first began creating for friends, family and even her dog! Naima soon realized that she wanted to create for more than just friends and family.

Knits by Naima was created to do just that, fulfill that need for more. Knits by Naima creates handmade knit and crochet accessories, that are made for the modern woman, who enjoys adding pops of color to her wardrobe. The fall and winter accessories are designed to keep you warm while also staying fashionable. The spring and summer accessories are designed to be your go-to when grabbing brunch or traveling. Above all, her products will have people on the street wondering, where did she get that? So, the next time you think of someone who knits, don’t stop at just the grandparent in their rocking chair, think of Naima too, a 28 year old woman in her apartment binge watching a new tv show as she creates.
