Hi friends, I'm Kyleagh.

I am the knitter, designer, wanna be model and adventurer behind The Knitty Pine. My name is pronounced Ky-Lee, in case you were wondering (because I am sure you were). I grew up in Ontario, Canada and currently live in Hamilton. I started knitting in 2010 when my friends started to get married and have babies. My beloved Grandma always made them the most beautiful gifts and I wanted to be able to continue on with the tradition. 

The Knitty Pine was born in 2015 with the encouragement from my dear friend Jaime Jagt, owner of Little Love (now, The Shop at Sweetwater). I made a few pieces and sold them in Little Love's online store. I then made my very own Etsy shop in 2016 that promptly remained empty because I had no idea what I was doing. I did my first market in November 2016 and that is when I knew I wanted The Knitty Pine to be a bigger part of my life. 

Fast forward five years and The Knitty Pine has grown to include a collection of DIY knitting patterns. I never thought I would become a designer but it is something I absolutely love. It brings me joy seeing others make beautiful pieces with a pattern that I created. My favourite thing to design, as well as knit, is hats.

The Knitty Pine has allowed me to combine my love of the outdoors and nature with a hobby that I love. When I do not have knitting needles in my hands (but even sometimes with) you can find me sipping coffee, canoeing, exploring the outdoors, thrifting, hitting up a local craft brewery or in the kitchen making something plant-based and delicious.
