For your favorite patterns, head over to the News section to learn more about the design, and what is going on in my knitterly life.
Since I first began publishing my knit designs, I have heavily focused on publishing under someone else's umbrella - magazines, websites, collaborations, etc. Infrequently I would publish independently under the Klever Knits umbrella, but these were usually designs I loved very much. They were special to me and I wanted to hold on to them. The beginning of 2017 has brought a lot of changes to my life - a move across country, marriage, job - which resulted in a lot of internal reflection. Part of that reflection sparked the desire to truly revamp my brand, my website, and my designs & my design process.
After taking a good hard look at my previous designs, I kept seeing a major conflict. I wasn't designing the garments that I wanted to wear, I was designing what I thought would appeal to the most people. Because I wasn't staying true to myself I was getting stressed, struggling to create new ideas for submission calls, and creating so much unnecessary anxiety in my life. Now I will do my best to stay true to my style and knit & create the pieces I actually want in my life. And I hope that these designs will appeal to you as well!
