Fuzzy Mitten was started by me and my husband in 2006. I design the toys, write the patterns, do the photography, and run my web-shops, and my husband helps with all the other technical parts I haven’t learned yet.
In the beginning, I made knitted toys to sell, but quickly realized the benefits of publishing my designs. Fuzzy Mitten was originally intended to fill time between gardening jobs. However, over the years it grew into my full-time career, in between caring for two young boys, and my other hobbies of sewing, gardening, and yoga. These days I devote all my time to designing, rather than making toys to sell.
