Hi knitters, designers, dyers and fiber artists!

My favorite part of the knitting world is the connections and relationships we create and foster. We are a rich community with so much to offer each other! If you don't see what you're looking for below, please send me an email so we can chat more!

TEST KNITTING

Pattern creation is a team effort - test knitters make important contributions to readability, fit, and layout. I count on both repeat and new testers, testers at all levels of experience, and testers with yarns at different budget points.

 

If you’d like to test knit with me, the best way is to join my mailing list - new test calls are announced there first!

I contacted Jen about help grading. I had been designing for a few years (mostly shawls) and this was my first garment. I wanted to do my own grading so I read all the usual reference books but still needed some help applying it as well as understanding some of the nuances to the various measurements.

 

Jen was amazing. I honestly do not think I could have put out my first sweater without her assistance in grading. She has a very thorough understanding of fit and guided me through the process of grading consistently across an inclusive size range.

 

She also helped me troubleshoot some problem areas in the pattern (for example: the collar not lying nicely). I now feel much more confident doing my own grading and in the quality of my sweater designs.

DYER COLLABORATION

I love working in partnership with independent dyers to create something truly one-of-a-kind. So if you have a great idea for a project or think we’d be a good match, send me an email, I’d love to hear all about it!
