Meet AdKnits! You can find her at Handmade Holiday on both days of the show…
I learned to knit when I was about seven years old but became more serious about it when I was in college… mostly because I was broke and went the DIY route on Christmas gifts. Sophomore year, everyone in my family got a sweater. They were all super-ugly and, not surprisingly, nobody ever wore them. Back then, finding good patterns was hard because there weren’t a lot of online resources, so I started designing my own and then eventually began selling my designs online.
What is your most popular product? Why do you think it’s so popular?
At shows, my most popular products are the little bows I make. The first one I made was a little bowtie for my son when he was a toddler and I discovered it was a great way to use up my leftover scrap yarn. I think people like them because I usually have a wide variety of colors and they’re not a huge financial commitment. Also, they’re adorable.
