I love to share my passion for knitting and crochet through teaching and designing. My designs have been published in Vogue Knitting, Knitting Socks with Hand-painted Yarn, One + One Hats, One + One Wraps, Cowls, & Capelets, Tahki Stacy Charles and independently as Pam Grushkin Designs. In 2004 I began to work at Knit Together in Stamford, CT. It was there that I created Stitch and Chat. A class dedicated to supporting knitters and crocheters. Since then I have built a rich curriculum of classes that range from beginner to intermediate.
In 2007 when Knit Together closed I began to work at Knitting Central which later became Westport Yarns. I manage Westport Yarns and continue to teach. I am rarely seen without a hook or needles in my hands.
When I was 12, my mother taught my sister and I how to knit. I have very fond memories of traveling to the yarn store to pick out our projects. I still remember the first time I saw Noro yarns on the “specialty” yarns table and just ogling it. My first sweaters were knit with Candide and Lopi. Options were few back in the day. My love for knitting has stayed with me through the years and if you’ll pardon the pun, has been a constant thread throughout my life.
