About Me

Hello, nice to meet you.

I’m Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. My goal is for you to have an enjoyable knitting experience, so I design, write and create tutorials that all aim to help provide you with this experience.

I worked at a yarn shop for over 8 years, so I am also quite experienced in yarn substitution and general knitting advice. Feel free to reach out to me if I can help with your questions!

My Background

I’ve lived in the Portland, Maine area for 17 years (after growing up in New York/Connecticut, college in Boston and a short stint in Southern California where I met my husband many years ago!). Living in Maine inspires everything I do and I’m so proud to call it home.

Prior to starting my design career I worked in the advertising industry for over 10 years. Currently, in addition to my knitting world, I also do freelance work in marketing, web development, project management and admin/operations. I have also worked in the tech field in the Portland area for some time and have enjoyed working with software companies and other start-ups. 

Thanks for learning a bit more about me – drop me a note if you ever have any questions or just to introduce yourself!
