Jessica Anderson likes to design fun and quirky knitting patterns that are easy to finish. She enjoys being home with her 5 children and her supportive husband, and coffee. Lots of coffee.
I taught myself how to Knit with a book I got from the Library and some videos that I watched on KnittingHelp.com. I originally picked up the knitting needles because we were a cloth diapering family, but we couldn’t afford the cute $60 soakers to go over the diapers. I found some wool yarn on sale and had a coupon, so I figured I could attempt to make my own. When my youngest daughter was born, I really wanted her to have a dress that I kept picturing in a certain way, but I couldn’t find a pattern that matched my vision, so I worked up my own. That was almost 5 years ago, and most of my patterns still come from a “I can’t find this (fill in the blank) anywhere, so I’ll just make my own!”
Jessica's work can be found in her Ravelry Store, in knit scene Magazine, Knit Picks Collections, Knit Simple and in an upcoming book with Martingale.
