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. You want snacks? Go get some! (I haven’t figured out how to deliver those digitally yet. But if I could, I promise I would. The first thing you should know about me is that I love snacks.)
I’m originally from Colorado, but moved to Oregon about 5 years ago. I have loved being out here, and I feel incredibly lucky to call such a neat place home. I have an Australian Shepherd named Roo, and I am quite fond of the little fluff ball. Look at her. Look at this cutie.
The second picture is her wearing a scarf I made her. As you can see, she was not impressed. She is also a very good companion on bike trips.
Other things I like include: reading, napping, coming up with jokes that are as corny as possible, and drawing! I’ve been really into using only brush pens and sharpies lately. It’s a fun challenge to figure out how to make something work only using ink.
Now let’s talk about KNITTING! I just started learning about a year ago. I’ve made a few unrecognizable balls of knots, some scarves, a couple of hats, dishcloths, and I just finished my very first sock! Now I just have to finish the second one … but we don’t need to talk about that right now. It will happen. Someday.
Knitting has been such a game changer for me. As a designer, I’m on the computer a lot. I spend a lot of time making things for the digital world, but I don’t often get to make things that I can hold and use in my day-to-day life. With knitting, I can snuggle, wear, and love the heck out of everything I make. That is such a rewarding feeling, and one that I’ve come to cherish very much. I never knew how attached I could be to a dishcloth.
I’m so, so dang excited to be a part of this team! Next time you get a Knit Picks email, I hope it brings a smile to your face and some yarn to your stash.
See you on the internet! Bye!
P.S. Please tell me your favorite jokes. Thank you.
