I have become obsessed with keeping my hands busy. I started making and selling hand-sewn purses back in Florida while at university while studying fashion. I am now living in Scotland with my husband, enjoying weather that allows me to wear hand-knits on a daily basis. I’m also working towards my MA in Fashion and Textile Design at Heriot-Watt University, focusing on knitwear in a sustainable context.
I love teaching others to knit, crochet and sew and find that crafting is essential to a satisfying life. This blog shows my knitted and sewn items, whether they are my design or someone else’s pattern. You can find my designs for sale on Etsy, and if you are Ravelry my username is Kristenmakes. I love comments and questions!
