Hello, and thanks for visiting!

I’m Kathie and I am, variously, a knitter, a designer, a tech editor, and a test knitter. My husband thinks I have way too much yarn. I disagree.

tech editing

Proofing, number-checking & more to make your patterns work for your customers. If you’re looking for a tech editor for your knitting patterns, my tech edit page has more details!


Unusual & thoughtful baby bootie patterns. Sometimes fun, sometimes intricate … sometimes both! I’m inspired by nature, by traditional knitting techniques and styles, and, sometimes, by dares!

More than just booties … interesting (but not hard!) accessory patterns, including hats, mitts, cowls, and socks.

My shakeyourbooties! patterns are for sale right here or on Ravelry. I have a monthly newsletter – sign up below for new patterns, new tips and tricks, sneak peeks at upcoming designs, exclusive discounts, and more!
