Meet the Maker
Meet the Maker, Delaney
I learned to knit at the age of 10 – only putting down the needles to pick up hooks. As much as I love upcycling old fabric, yarn is my favorite medium. I usually have yarn with me everywhere I go.
I have always been a big fan of Mother Earth, which is why I strive to make products sustainably, made for your journey to sustainability, or both! I do anything I can to bring new life to old materials.
I’m proud of everything I make, but I’m ecstatic when it can be made 100% with second-hand products!! At this point, most of my yarn and other materials have come from thrift stores, friends, or friends of friends #sustainability. It makes me so happy to bring new life to a skein of yarn that clearly sold in stores in1975 and has been in your great aunt’s yarn bin ever since.
About DKnits etc.
DKnits was started in 2017 after stitching for over half of my life. All of my friends told me I could do it and I finally believed them. It started with some ideas and dreams and ended up here!
Now, I have a constant stream of second hand materials and packaging (thanks to my friends!!) a room overflowing with second-hand fabric, more than enough yarn, and a hell of a lot of ideas.
DKnits gives back
I love being able to give back to my community whenever possible! Each year for the Beat the Blues Cruise, I donate a few special (blue) items to their silent auction. DKnits has also participated in the 10×10 Collective (organized by 10×10 Gallery), a market that gives back – sending part of my market proceeds straight to WayForward to give right back into the city that raised me, Middleton Wisconsin.
DKnits loves to keep it #sustainable – thanks for supporting Mother Earth with me!!
Some of my favorite makes
These are just a few of the things I’ve created in the past. You can use these as inspiration for a custom order, or just admire my talent!
