Staff Projects: Hats for Days – Part Deux

We are expected to have our first snowfall of the season next week here in the Pacific Northwest. While this may not come as welcome news for some people in our neck of the woods, folks around the KP office are excited at the prospect of putting our most recent labors of love to work, keeping our heads toasty and warm during this potential snowpocalypse (we don't get a lot of snow around here).

Meet Morgan, New Digital Graphic Designer

Hey everybody! My name is Morgan, and I am incredibly excited to be joining the Knit Picks team as the digital graphic designer. You want emails? I got you. You want web graphics? Coming right up.

I have an Australian Shepherd named Roo, and I am quite fond of the little fluff ball. Look at ...

Travel Knitting: My UK/Ireland Trip Sweater!

Several years ago, I got to take an amazing trip around the UK and Ireland with my husband and his parents. It was such an incredible, once in a lifetime opportunity, I decided I wanted an equally special, one of a kind souvenir to remember it by, so I came up with a plan to knit a trip sweater! And then I did it! The idea was to buy yarn in every city I visited (or as many as possible, at least), and then knit a sweater with stripes of all the yarns I bought. Also, to have the project as my travel knitting throughout the trip–on planes, trains, and backs of cars. So I started my planning by choosing a pattern. I ...

Meet Erica, New Marketing Coordinator

Hi, I’m Erica, and I’m the new marketing coordinator at Knit Picks! I started out here as the book designer working on our pattern collections, and I quickly became a huge fan girl for all things Knit Picks. I am so excited to be moving into this new role and sharing all that’s good about this company with you! (That’s me on the left.) You might be asking yourself: What kind of a knitter is this Erica person anyway?  Well, the first thing I should tell you is that I taught myself to knit back in college. I’m ashamed (and a little proud?) to admit that my first big project was … drum roll … the Queen of Hearts Bikini from Stitch ‘n Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook.

It’s been a bit since our last staff project post.

Regardless of how busy we are, you know we spend an inordinate amount of time with our pattern queue and massive yarn stash. Here’s a look at what has been coming off of our needles around the office this fall!   Kate’s Shifty Shawl
