The shoes are brilliant! the shipment took a while, which was not PrettySneaky's mistake at all. she was very helpful in ensuring it gets to me as fast as possible.

About

Custom sneakers...knitted!

My grandmother taught me how to knit while I was growing up. She kept a basketful of yarn, knitting needles, and crochet hooks for my cousins and me to use when we stayed over at her house. I started knitting more seriously in high school and haven't really stopped since! I enjoy making all kinds of projects, from sweaters to felted animals to socks.

The knitted sneakers came about a few years ago, after I saw a knitted pair in a craft magazine. I made significant changes to their model, experimented on a few pairs of Chucks, and developed the techniques that I now use for PrettySneaky. I love the endless possibilities in design...I'm always finding new ideas for patterns.

I love living and working in my home state. PrettySneaky is part of my professional life that also includes teaching art history at a local college. When I'm not knitting, I enjoy playing ice hockey and spending time with friends and family. It all keeps me busy, but I love the mixture!
