the Knit and Stitch Sisters

the Knit and Stitch Sisters

The Knit and Stitch Sisters are four ladies who meet once a week to knit (and crochet) and ......yup, you guessed it, bitch! We fondly refer to ourselves as the 3 Knitting Bitches and 1 Happy Hooker. I like to think that makes us sound way more interesting than four women who sit around and make things out of string. Wouldn't you agree? Plus, it’s way snappier.

What do we bitch about, you ask? Everything— literally! The price of yarn, the state of the world, and how we had to sneak another 50 balls of yarn into the house because you never know when you might need it, right? A few of us have even resorted to having it delivered to the door( is that such a bad thing, really?)!

LEE ANN GARRETT OF FRESH TWIST

Ten years ago I created my first designs, a line of hand knit, newborn hats based on fruit, vegetable and sports themes. The hats were a resounding success and as word-of-mouth spread so did demand. My designs now include knit baby accessories, tea cosies and women's felt hats. These are available at juried craft shows, specialty boutiques, online and now The Nooks Danforth!

I was reluctant at first to turn my knitting hobby into a business but finally decided to take it to the next level. I quit my day job, and after several years I now run my own business, Fresh Twist.
