About

PhD looks to career pivot to find joy

I spent 10 years working for my PhD. And a few years into my first academic tenure-track job (academic speak for a job where you have hope of having some sort of job stability 7 years later), I was exhausted. I was stressed. I was scrambling to do things I actually cared about because things that were less inspiring were pressing down on me like a lead weight. My children were (are) young and my husband was looking for a career change. I felt like Atlas, holding up the world.

And in that place, I re-found knitting. I had been a crocheter for nearly 15 years and a knitter for 10, but I found solace and inspiration in the creativity of knitting. I loved the luxurious fibers and the spectacular, unique finished objects I could find.

While it may yet be in me, I'm not a knitwear designer. But I do have creative inspirations I can contribute to the knitting world and I am excited to share those with you.

Stitch markers are one way to add whimsy, sparkle and your own voice to your knitting and crochet and I am so excited to share my designs with you. I'm also working on some new product lines to offer more must-have goodies to fiber enthusiasts everywhere.

Unlike my job in academia, these creative pursuits bring me joy and I would like to share it with you, one product at a time. Thanks for shopping and browsing. I hope you find something you love to bring joy to your knitting and crocheting.
