made with love in san francisco

I live, work, and play in the beautiful city of San Francisco. A Connecticut native, I taught myself how to knit my senior year of high school and quickly became completely obsessed with it. To the dismay of many of my teachers, I churned out scarf after scarf during class, during lunch, and during study hall. I dragged a big crate of yarn 800 miles with me to college in Greensboro, North Carolina and continued to "teach" myself (and anyone who would listen) the art of knitting. Along the way, I picked up a hook and a copy of Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker and got busy with my newfound love for crochet. I designed the prototype for the fingerless gloves that eventually defined my business while watching reruns of The Office in my friend's dorm room.

After graduating, I packed my life into two suitcases and flew across the country to find a life for myself in San Francisco. On my first official day living in San Francisco, I woke up, Googled nearby yarn stores (obviously), and found ImagiKnit -- the biggest, greatest yarn store I had ever seen.

Two days later, I was hired.

Today, I'm still working full-time teaching classes and managing that big, great yarn store. Every day, I surround myself with amazing fibers and colors and textures and ideas. When I'm not knitting/crocheting/selling yarn, I'm generally either eating or sleeping or thinking about things I want to make.

I hope you find something you love here. Feel free to contact me about custom work!
