Melissa Simpson

I am also a SAHM to my son, Zackary (9 years old) and daughters, Katarina (7), Addyson Joy (4) and Reagan Elizabeth (19 months). I have been happily married to my husband, Ben for 10 years. We live in the Silicon Valley in Northern California. We homeschool our kids, so my days are always filled with craziness and fun with projects occurring at all times!

I opened DaKine Knits in December of 2008 and have happily been knitting away for many wonderful mama’s. It has been such a joy to get to know and work with so many different people, and has really given me a creative outlet. I joined the A La Mode Congo on Hyena Cart in the summer of 2009 and have gotten to know more about running a business and advertising, and of course many more talented artisans. In January 2010, I invited my best friend Nicole and my mom Beth to open up a shop on HC with me and the rest is a WIP. In 2011 we won the Spotted Box WAHM award in the Best Knitter category, such an honor to even be nominated! Now our focus is less on custom/instock knitting but creating and designing new patterns and we are trying our hand at some yarn dying which just might make a debut in a Etsy store near you soon. ;)
