July 2019 - ANDREA MOWRY

July 01, 2019

After leaving her life as a pastry chef to start a family, Andrea's hands found the necessary freedom to begin creating with fibre instead of flour. She focuses on designing knits to fit the modern wardrobe - fun to knit and easy to wear.

Andrea has a great love for indulging in new techniques and skills and then sharing them with other knitters through her patterns and workshops. Her goal is to leave knitters feeling empowered, inspired, and wrapped up in their own beautiful knits!

You can find her at www.dreareneeknits.com and everywhere else as DreaReneeKnits!

Throughout July you can visit Andrea’s samples of the LYS cardigan, Wildwood shawl and Plumpy shawl in our Designer of the Month display. You can also pick up the yarn set for the Plumpy shawl in sport or DK in store or online!
