About Me:
I'm the vice president of marketing for Knit Picks. We have an amazing and talented team of artists and knitters who handle the marketing, I just try to help them work their magic.

I learned to knit two months after I started here. My mom taught me on Christmas Eve 2007. People here often call me a "fearless" knitter because I jumped right in to lace, garments, and more intermediate projects. But I say that's because I have an entire tribe of knitting experts here who can help me get out of any knitting jam.

    I finished it. If I wasn't making it for my mom I would have never finished it. It was great travel knitting. It went with me to Austria, Germany, Italy, Yellowstone for New Years, and lots and lots of meetings at work.



    The pattern is the Shoulder Shawl out of Victorian Lace Today. I used… Continue

    Are you buying gift cards this holiday season?

    Posted on October 16, 2009 at 1:48pm 3 Comments

    Buying a gift card is a bitter sweet activity for me. On one hand, I'm giving a gift that gives in two ways--you get it as a gift, then they get to go shop with it, so it kinda doubles the enjoyment. Also, of course, they get exactly what they want.



    On the other hand, it's kind of impersonal and can carry that negative connotation that I didn't put much thought into it.



    The designers at Knit Picks have saved the day.…
