Vanessa Alyse



My name is Vanessa, almost everyone calls me Nessa. My story is interesting only in that it usually surprises people. I am a 27 year old self taught knitter, weaver, and crocheter. I have been living with fibromyalgia, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis for the past 10 years. These chronic illnesses can be very debilitating at times, often keeping me in bed for an extended amount of time due to pain and exhaustion. I started knitting as a way to deal with anxiety stemming from these illnesses. I had never knitted before but as soon as I picked up the needles it just all made sense.

I started to buy every type of yarn that I could get my hands on so I could pursue my weird little knitting obsession. I quickly realized that each yarn has a different texture and quality. It took me about a year to find the yarn that I work with currently, but the wait has been well worth it. One of the biggest compliments I receive on all of my knit pieces are about the softness and warmth.

As I created more knits, my illnesses became calmer and easier to handle, Knitting has not only become my passion, but also my therapy.

Weaving has been a newer exciting passion of mine that really allows me to express whatever I may be feeling at the time. This idea of wearable art has intrigued me to the point of obsession and I find myself swept away in creating pieces that feel like small paintings or landscapes.

There is a an overwhelming amount of joy that fills my heart when I am able to create something new with my own two hands and share it with the world. Every creation is designed and handmade by me, no machines involved - just a couple balls of yarn and two needles or my loom and shuttle! I love every part of creating from start to finish. I never expected for this to be a passion of mine, but as I keep creating and expanding, my passion for the art grows and keeps pushing me to create.

I hope that my work puts a smile on your face, keeps you warm, and makes you feel beautiful! Know that every piece is made with love and attention to detail.
