All About Agnes Lee Knitwear
Along with yoga and writing, my other great passion is crafting, particularly knitting and crocheting. Two years ago, I fulfilled a long-time dream and opened my Etsy shop, Agnes Lee Knitwear.
A Family Tradition
I learned the basics of knitting and crocheting from my great-grandmother in elementary school. We spent winter breaks skiing in Salt Lake City, and she would sit with me in the evenings helping me make my first chains and stitches.
But knitting and crocheting didn’t become lasting hobbies until I was in high school. Interested in learning, I bought a book and taught myself how to cast on using its visual instructions. Since then, I’ve made countless cozy wearables for friends and family, and I now write my own patterns.
My shop is named after Agnes and Lee, my paternal grandparents. It was from them that I learned the value of handmade things.
Handmade items last not only because they’re well-made but also because of the intention that they’re imbued with. You can walk into any store to buy a piece of clothing replicated thousands of times. But when something is made for you with intention, its value increases. In turn, it reminds you of your value every time you wear it.⠀
That is my hope for Agnes Lee Knitwear - communicating love and value with every piece made.

Since it’s finally autumn (aka the time for all things cozy), I’m having a sale on everything in the shop to celebrate. The HAPPY FALL, Y’ALL Sale runs until October 6, and you can get 15% off of anything in the shop. I also always send customers a little coupon for the next time they decide to visit <3
