One thing I try to impart to all my students is that the only difference between professional designers and them is that we have perfected how to make major mistakes look intentional. So instead of getting frustrated and down that your doily now fits your bed, giggle and rejoice at your new bedspread!
044: Power Purls Unplugged: You Asked, I’m Answering! How To Start a Knit Design Biz & Find Work/Life Balance
Barb Demorest, founder of Knitted Knockers is a wife, mother, grandmother and knitter living in Bellingham, Washington. She recently retired from her thirty-year career as a CPA and owner of a tax practice in order to pursue her passion of connecting volunteer knitters and crocheters with breast cancer survivors to provide free knitted knockers to those in need of them. Her mission is now to inspire the caring knitters and crocheters who can provide these gifts of love to women in their own communities. She no longer gets paid in dollars for her work but the rewards are priceless.
A simple gift of comfort and dignity knit by a caring friend changed my life. — Barb Demorest
