Modern knits was created as a platform for my love of all things knit and crochet and for my love of writing to come together. As a long time crocheter, I have made lots of handmade items. Looking to pick up a new hobby, and with my husbands gentle nudging, I decided to pick up a set of knitting needles and I’ve never looked back!

I’m self taught, using the an awesome iPad app and the internet, I figured out how to knit an purl and quickly signed up for my first Craftsy class: My First Sweater.  I made a sweater that’s terribly unflattering, but absolutely perfect because of all it taught me about knitting. I can conquer the world one stitch at a time!

I hope that you’ll find to be a resource to help you become a better knitter and crocheter.
