Work isn’t so bad when considering my days are spent in our home office with my parents bouncing ideas off of one another, pausing for lunches together and laughing amidst it all. I used to know nothing about yarn, but that has certainly changed after helping my mom decide which styles and colors she wants to add to our inventory. I mean seriously, yarn is no joke, and I’m consistently amazed at the many intricacies within this knitting world. If I’m being completely honest, I have yet to pick up knitting needles and I’m not sure if I foresee that in my future considering my lack of patience and frustration when it comes to attention to detail. My dad and I are alike in this way, and I’ve graciously decided to leave the process of learning to knit up to him. Watching that dude try to “cast on” is some quality entertainment. Despite my lack of knitting abilities, I hope to be useful to Izzy Knits in other ways. I plan to work with my dad on developing social media strategies that will spread the word to younger demographics and already I’ve used my knowledge of online shopping to add details to the website. (You see those color swatches below each yarn product? Yeah. You’re welcome.) However, the thing I’m most excited to start working on is the “Knitting with Dave” video series. If you don’t believe me when I say watching him try to knit is quality entertainment, then just wait for this project’s debut. Hey, thanks for welcoming my family into your knitting community! I can’t wait for more people to encounter the love and care my parents have to offer. We’ll talk again soon.Cali

In one of the knitting classes I’ve taken, I remember the instructor saying, “We often learn more from our failures than we do from our successes." Let's just say, I learned a lot from my second attempt at creating the ultimate dog sweater!
