My name is Kris, but you can call me Red.
By day I'm a Art Director for a advertising agency in Chicago. I commute by train to work from the suburbs and this is where I spend most of my knitting time.
When I started my blog back in 2006 I wanted to come up with a catchy name and I wanted it to be nifty. I then had a crazy idea to put in a silent K for Knitting;) So, Knifty Red it is.
I've been knitting since 2001 and was first inspired to learn because of my son. I wanted to make him a custom scarf to wear to the Harry Potter movie and thus my journey began. Teaching myself out of book held some challenges and I have learned so much along the way that I hope to inspire others to keep learning too. Each project holds a valuable lesson if your willing to learn.
