I loved knitwear for a long time, but only thought about making it myself when I was struggling with shoemaking. One of my inspirations was Tom van Dieijnen, who believes that anyone can learn to be a great knitter. One of my other inspirations was Jettshin. I saw photos of a cardigan she made, where she adapted a sock pattern to produce a gorgeous sweater. It showed me how much you can do with knitting. I decided to try it, so I took a knitting class in August 2015 and loved it. Making shoes was always a struggle, but knitting was relaxing, almost like meditation.
