Jessica Anderson


Jessica M. Anderson started knitting about 8 years ago when her husband thought it was silly to spend $60 on a pair of longies (he has since spent well more than $60 on yarn and knitting supplies!). After spending about a year sample knitting for Blue Sky Alpacas, she decided to try designing her own patterns. She has been designing every since. When she isn’t knitting, she is juggling homeschooling her 5 kids, sharing coffee with friends, or studying as a student midwife. Her designs are on Ravelry (username MonkeyButtBabies) and Craftsy.
