About

From a single strand to something adorable

Throughout my life I have had several 'careers'. I was a fry flinger for a fast food chain. I was a project manager for a computer company. I was even a radio DJ for several years and lived all over Canada.

Then one day, out of the blue, I got laid off. Stunned, I wondered what to do with myself. For so long I was 'something.' Now, was I anything?

Someone suggested I take up knitting to pass the time while I figured out what to do. I was against it at first - the idea of making misshapen scarves and doilies didn't appeal to me. And then I looked into it a bit more. I realised that knitwear doesn't have to be awkward sweaters that no one wants to wear. There's some pretty cool stuff out there! And I could make it!

Getting pregnant helped motivate me, as I was going to have a model at my beck and call (whether she knew it or not)!

And so, I picked up some books and taught myself how to knit. It was challenging and fun. I started knitting fun things for my nieces and nephew, and people started suggesting that I make them available to everyone.

Soon enough, Fuzzy Funk Designs was born. I pride myself on making fun stuff for kids and adults that doesn't take itself too seriously. I've always leaned towards that which is quirky and a little different, and I hope my stuff appeals to those people as well.


Cheers,

Julia

    I try not to take myself, or life too seriously. I stay at home with my crazy little preschooler and toddler, and knit my fingers off.

    I like to eat, run, and throw things. One of my favorite past times is taking things out of a box, and then putting things back in. Occasionally I will pose for Mommy, but it usually comes at a price.
