“There is practically no activity that cannot be enhanced or replaced by knitting, if you really want to get obsessive about it.”
– Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Knitting has been a part of Julie’s life ever since she was young. Even now, knitting is a consistent outlet for her creativity and a source of happiness in her life. With the start of My Sister Knits, Julie finds herself fortunate enough to be able to share her passion with the community. With the positive team and environment that My Sister Knits provides, clients of all skill levels can make the most of their knitting experience.
Diana recently retired from being an elementary school nurse for 25 years. Along with her husband, Bruce, they have relocated to Fort Collins from the Kansas City area. Now that Diana is finally here, working alongside her sister, Julie, it completes the dynamic and inspiration of My Sister Knits. She started knitting at the age of eight and her other hobbies include quilting, hiking, and birdwatching. Diana continues to grow in her knowledge of the ever-changing industry of knitting and is anxious to share that with you.
Kimberly is an artist and maker with a degree in Fiber Arts from Colorado State University. She is drawn to the colors and textures of yarns and is always seeking new ways to combine them. Kimberly loves the traditions of handwork, the community created by the gathering of makers, and the care and heart reflected in hand-mades. In her bag you will always find a bit of knitting, a notebook for writing down quotes and other words, and a tiny plastic pig named Lucille.
Kate is a devoted knitter and somewhat reluctant crocheter. She recently moved to Vermont to start a homestead with her husband Rafael. In a few years, they hope to be able to feed friends, family and neighbors with the fruits of their labor. When she is not getting her hands dirty, she loves going for long walks (especially through crunching fall leaves), preserving fresh local produce, and settling into a comfortable chair with a good story (on audio) while stitching to her heart’s content. She prefers to work on sweaters and blankets, but thanks to our new Jul clasps, she has recently found a new love for large snuggly shawls. Her current favorite yarn is Shibui’s Pebble but she always has a soft spot for any of the amazing blends created by the Fibre CO.
Dawn is a knitter, enthusiastic tennis player, foodie and lover of all things grey. She believes good dark chocolate should be consumed each and every day, and Jimmy Fallon rules. Her favorite items to knit are cowls and sweaters, but don’t ask her to name her favorite yarn in the shop because she has three! Euroflax linen, Blue Sky Worsted and Isager 2. She lives one block away from My Sister Knits with her husband, son and four-legged friend, Landon.
Theresa is a new knitter with a great passion for the craft. She began knitting two years ago after moving from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago to the beautiful Fort Collins area with her husband Norm. Theresa loves to make cowls and hats, and when she finds a great pattern, she always makes more than one! Her favorite yarns are Madelinetosh and Anzula Cricket. Theresa and her husband enjoy time with their four legged friend, Lucy, who they rescued last December.
