My best friend came back from England in 2006 with a new accent and a new love of knitting. In 2008 she taught me how to knit and it was something that I really loved and took off with. I starting making scarves and selling them at craft shows and to friends, and a little bit on Etsy, but I never thought it would turn into the passion that it is today.

In 2012, after my husband and I moved to Portland and a week later, decided to drive back to Illinois, we knew that we needed a plan, we needed to do something, so that was when Knittorious was given a name and we opened a store. I honed my skill and am now able to make people all the things that you see today. I closed the stores doors after having our first born son, so that I was able to soak up all the baby snuggles.

I now do tons of craft shows in the fall and winter. I love being surrounded by cozy, warm goodness and am usually always wrapped up in something that I've made.
