Keeping it cozy one stitch at a time.
Introduced at a very young age to the timeless handicrafts of knitting, sewing & crochet by my Mum and both of my Grandmas, I haven't looked back since! My love affair with creating any and everything with my hands grows with every completed project. The handmade community is an incredible one and I feel so blessed to be in the company of other makers who share with, inspire, and support one another.
Smash Knits evolved from years of making warm & cozy accessories to gift to friends and family. When my gift baskets began to overflow with finished pieces, I knew it was time to take things to the next level. Working against the bitter cold of the Canadian Prairies, I wanted to create pieces that are fun, fashion friendly, and timeless, without forsaking functionality. Using a variety of fibres allows me to create items for any customer, regardless of budget, ethical views, and style preference.
Nestled in my bright and cheery studio, I always have several different projects on the go simultaneously. It's my happy place! I have a tendency to go from sewing machine, to knitting needles, to crochet hook. Some may call it "ADD", but I describe my tendency for leaving bits and pieces in my wake as "creative clutter". I am constantly scribbling notes or dreaming up my next big project in my head. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Ashlee. I have about 10 different projects on the go at any given time, and leave them all over the house. I love, love, love that moment when I finish a new piece, no matter what it is :)
