Meet Jennifer!

We’ve made a few changes in the office recently and I’m pleased to introduce you to one of our newest Knit Picks team members, Jennifer! Jennifer is brand new to our team, and has become a Jill-of-all-trades around the office. From processing all the new books we get in, to e-mailing with the designers in our IDP program, she's quickly become an indispensable addition to our little group. We asked her some quick questions about her crafty background and her experience working here, so far!

Introducing Big Art Knits!

I'm so excited to present my first-ever pattern collection, Big Art Knits! When we were planning collections for 2016, one of my suggestions was a collection that used really big, bulky yarns.

That's why they're so perfect for home goods-they add a cozy feeling without overwhelming a room.

Little Introduction

O hey, everyone! My name is Jenny and I’m a brand new, pleased-as-punch addition to the Knit Picks staff. As time goes on, I hope to share all my beautiful, botched or just plain shrug-inducing projects with you! It’ll be fun, I promise.  First and foremost, I don’t knit. And frankly, how are you all doing it? Was I merely born with the dexterity of child wearing thick mittens? The needles! The way you must hold TWO of them! On the other hand:  Crocheting.

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself because I have a feeling we’ll be hearing a lot from each other on this blog. I’m the new (very excited) Graphic Designer at Knit Picks. I just sent my very first catalog to the printers so I’ll have more time to post about all the crazy knit things I’m working on. I’m a self-taught crafter.
