Gunilla Leavitt

Taught to knit by my grandma at a tender age (8 or 11, I honestly don’t remember), hating it (dark green probably acrylic and tiny needles), only to pick it back up at 17 when hand knit mohair sweaters were all the rage (pfft, I can do that!), I never thought I’d find myself designing, teaching, or helping others with their knitting. Funny where life takes you sometimes :)

I was fortunate enough to work as the Knitting Doctor at a fabulous LYS (Knitting Arts in Saratoga) for 3 1/2 years. The store closed its doors in June of 2008 after 5 years in business, and now I am Knitting Doctor at Green Planet Yarn in Campbell and, after a stint at (the now closed) The Yarn Place in Capitola, at Chics with Sticks in Santa Cruz.
