I began knitting in college after exiting a tumultuous relationship and taught myself how to knit and crochet as a way to battle anxiety, fear and depression. I opened Northknits handmade knitwear in 2014 after the Lord placed it on my heart to seek handmade as a reminder that we must Need Obey Rejoice and Thank Him, the 'North' acronym of which my shop is named. My pieces are for the daring minimalist who appreciates classic beauty and cozy, and seek a one-of-a-kind handmade reminder of God's constant love and grace.
I name each of my knitwear pieces around a personal biblical or spiritual lesson, and love curling up with coffee during my quiet prayer time to design and make each knit and crochet piece by hand. Fair isle cowls, as well as chunky infinity scarves, blankets and hats comprise my collection and each piece is handmade with calm prayer and grace. I pattern, make, photograph, package and ship every piece to you in hopes that you receive the love put into it.
As the founder of Our Maker Life, a knit/crochet movement for makers by makers, I am overjoyed that OML has been able to reach thousands - and it both encourages and energizes me to continue my love and passion for northknits.
I am just a girl who found grace through knitting, and all of you make the journey so very worth it.
I was recently featured by We Are Knitters (here: where I tell more of my story. Thank you for your beautiful support, I'm praying for you always. xoxo
