Hiya! I'm Katie,

from Canada and I am the woman behind the scenes here at The Knit Nook. I have newly become a permanent resident of New Zealand. With my kiwi husband of 17 years, and our four kids who are 15, 14, 11 and five, I moved to Napier at the end of 2021.

I had been home educating our three eldest children for about eight years but with a big move and change of pace I thought I would try something new. This new season of life is freeing me up for yarn related adventures and I am excited for it. I’ve been knitting for about fourteen years and have a passion for both knitting itself and the community it nurtures. Knitting has been a balm and a comfort many times in my life, especially during the pandemic. It brings me so much joy that I will be able to send you something happy in the mail that furthers your enjoyment of knitting or crochet.
