Announcement   Stylish and practical handmade accessories crafted in Seattle, WA.

OpportunityKnits accessories are made with great care from original designs. I work with a variety of yarns, including wool, mohair, alpaca and fiber blends - including wool-free yarns for those of you who are sensitive to wool. Many of my designs can be worn by men and women alike.

All items handmade by me in my pet-friendly home. No cats allowed in the studio!

A portion of every sale helps to provide personal care kits (basic toiletries) for men and women transitioning from prison to employment. Your purchase from OpportunityKnits can make a real difference to someone who has "done their time" and is ready to get his or her life on track. It starts with a job, and getting a job means looking and feeling prepared and professional.

About

Stitching for Social Change

My shop and my product were inspired by a pair of fleece-lined fingerless mittens and my desire to link design and handcrafts to commerce that would drive social change.

The mission of OpportunityKnits is to support women in transition from prison back to community, family and employment. 10% of all sales is used to purchase personal care items, which I donate via my friends and former colleagues at Roadmap to Success, a local re-entry program.

My armwarmer design is the result of lots and lots of prototypes, starting with handknit pieces made from my yarn stash, a not-very-good pair of scissors, and my ancient Singer sewing machine. I've since graduated to a knitting machine (which still requires lots of elbow grease!) and a new sewing machine more up to the task.

If I can help even one woman get back on her feet - never to return to prison again - it will make all the dropped stitches, crooked seams, unexpected knots in yarn and broken needles worthwhile.
