ABOUT

knitworking_jen

I’m Jeanette – Jen for short– a transplanted Canadian living in New York City. By day (and often by evening too) I have an amazing career at an art gallery where daily I have an opportunity to consider the conversation between history and contemporary life, to think thoughtfully about how design can forward an idea, and to grow personally through my work with the brilliant and gifted colleagues and artists we collaborate with.

When I’m not working, I’m often knitting. It’s a hobby that, funny enough, provides ample opportunity to consider the conversation between history and contemporary life, to think thoughtfully about how design can forward an idea, and allows me to grow personally through the brilliant and gifted members of the knitting and crafting communities.

Knitworking.net is an effort to bring a bit of that richness forward. It’s a celebration of a pursuit that grounds me daily to the concrete ways in which I live and navigate an increasingly complicated and concrete world and which lends materiality and time to values that a busy life in New York can too easily obscure.
