Meet Josie! - A twenty-seven year old new mommy, knitter, and creator. Josie sells chunky hand knit scarves and accessories in her shops, Peony Knits (for adults) and Peony Blossoms (for little ones). Her mom taught her how to knit at a very young age but it wasn’t until college that she became an avid knitter. Josie opened Peony Knits in October 2012, shortly after the passing of her youngest brother, Jake. Josie says opening her shop provided her with comfort, happiness, and hope. She added that Peony Knits became a much needed distraction and allowed her to focus on the future. Though she spent many days working what she notes as an unhappy time in a cubicle, she spent her nights knitting and creating. Her dream was to grow and work on Peony Knits full-time while being surrounded by babies!
Today, Josie says she is proud to say that her dream is now her reality. She works from home on both of her shops full-time while caring for her eight month old daughter, Adalie.
