We are Kate and Laila, knitters with a love of whimsy. That's why we started Knit and Gather to teach others the craft we love. We have both been knitting for over twenty years and love to experiment with different mediums. Coming from Norwegian cultural backgrounds, it is folk art and craft that connects us with our heritage! Kate is a professional knitting pattern designer and teacher and in the last year Kate and Laila have partnered to teach fiber arts together.

Our goal is to share knowledge, connect with others, and offer high quality patterns, tools, and more. Follow along and connect with us!

With love, 
Laila and Kate
