I am a German girl and somehow I ended up living in Brooklyn. I went to fashion school in Berlin and now I am a hand-knit designer. I used to work as a design and production assistant for a company making knitwear mainly on knitting machines. But or maybe because of that I will always have a heart for hand-made things and I still enjoy and appreciate the advantages of good old hand-knitting!
