Hello, and thanks for visiting!

I’m Kathie and I am, variously, a technical services librarian, 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!

If you’d like more information about my patterns, you can find out more on my design page. My shakeyourbooties! designs are for sale on Ravelry.
