In my time as a fiber artist I have heard so many knitters downplay their abilities claiming, "It's just a hobby" or "I'm not as good as others."
I believe this is unwarranted self sabotage. The very act of creating something out of fiber, whether it be the simplest dishcloth or the most complex sweater, takes more effort, know-how, and drive than one may realize.
Seeing this trend of doubt is what lead me to make luxury tools and accessories for the fiber artist. It is my way of reinforcing the idea that what you do is special. With that reminder, I hope you have the courage to stand up for your craft and to try new things. Do the Knitpossible!
I am the man behind Knitpossible. I started this journey in Indiana around 2015 after dropping out of college, where I was studying interior design. I was a knitter, crocheter, and spinner by then and was lucky enough to get a job at my local yarn store, which also sold jewelry supplies.
It didn't take long for me to pick up jewelry making as a new hobby but my involvement in the craft eventually grew far more intense than I could have anticipated. I taught myself as many skills as I could and by 2017 I was enrolled at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco. It was at the Revere Academy that I honed my skills in old-school European style goldsmithing and truly found my calling.
I temporarily closed Knitpossible while in school and tentatively reopened after moving to a new city. I found employment at a jewelry store, then at another yarn store, and by the end of 2018 I was offered a position at the production studio of a fine jewelry brand in the San Francisco Bay Area. I packed up my work, closed Knitpossible again so I could focus on moving, and made my way out to California once again.
I am happy to be in charge of this business and to put my skills in fine jewelry to use. There's nothing that makes me happier than hearing how much a customer enjoys the piece I have made for them. I hope you take the time to look through my work and fall in love with it just like I have!
I appreciate you taking the time to read about my work and what all goes in to the things I make. If you want to get your very own piece of empowerment, head to my shop and pick out whatever speaks to you! Remember, you can do the Knitpossible!
