map-pin Vancouver, Canada

I learned to knit on arbutus twigs when I was six and haven't looked up since. I have been caught knitting at traffic lights, cafés and beaches, but my backyard is my favorite place to knit alongside my husband and Kitty. Always knitting, never waiting, you won't catch me without a project or two in my purse!
With a fashion design degree from Ryerson University, I have a passion for knitwear design and teaching. With a no-rules-in-knitting approach but high standards for excellence, my passion is to guide students to knit freely with solid technique.

I am passionate about building the knit community. I love to interact with fellow makers. I love to see what crafters are making, please share #ShareYourTCJ. I repost projects from my fan who knit TCJ projects on Instagram @craftyjackalope Follow me and become part of the community!

The Crafty Jackalope is the hub for my simple to knit, stunning to wear knit & crochet designs. We offer an array of knitting/crochet patterns,
