About Knit & Purl

Hey I'm CJ and thanks for visiting Knit & Purl.
A little bit about me.... well, I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful daughter. We live in Gippsland, regional Victoria. I work part-time as a Registered Nurse, but my main occupation is a mum. Knitting is part of 'me time' usually while curled up on the couch watching Netflix :p.

My Nanna taught me to knit as a teenager and I fell in love with it. My first project was a jumper I knitted for my now husband's 16th birthday. The sense of achievement I had when it was finished and the pride I felt every time he wore it, cemented my love of knitting and creating.
Over the years I have hand knit many many items in my spare time, usually for new family additions and childrens clothes and toys for charity.

When my daughter was born, I began looking for ideas that I could make for her to wear. Hence along came the pre-walker shoes, beanies, and other cute baby things. People began asking me to create items for their kids and so the idea of starting my own business was born. Now my business incorporates children's clothes for ages up to 12 years as well as many knitted toys and play items.

If you would like any of my items in a particular colour, style, or size please feel free to contact me and I will do my best.

Thanks for taking the time to read my story, and enjoy shopping :)
