Because I Can't Help Myself...

Hmm… where to start? I suppose for me it all began with finding the perfect medium. It took me years to figure it out but that medium has proven to be knitting. It's in my blood and where I really feel at home. I’m happiest when I have created something with my hands. An object I can hold, something with a memory.

So here I am. A wife, momma to three, knitter and the maker behind Blue Dog Workshop. Opened in April of 2012 I am proud to offer a growing selection of knitting patterns, project bags and stitch markers, all handmade in my home studio in Southern Maine.

I must add that I wouldn't be here without a nod to my late Grammy Gene who always had her knitting needles and project bag at her side. We are bonded in a timeless sort of way. Always busy, always knitting. Because I can't help myself.
