About Me

Brownie Knits is owned and operated by me, Gina Kanouse. It was founded in 2009 to bring together my passion for knitting and fulfill my wish of a creative outlet as a career. I spend my days knitting and crocheting items to sell via the Brownie Knits Etsy store, designing knitting and crochet patterns, editing and testing other designer’s patterns, and sharing my love of the crafts by providing instruction.

I learned to crochet as part of 4-H and was taught by my Aunt. Looking for a creative release while working in a corporate environment, I picked up crochet again and learned to knit. My passion for the needlearts blossomed into life and I knew then that I wanted to make it my career. My days are spent knitting and crocheting with my two yorkies, Riley & Kennedy, by my side. My husband, Patrick, is a great supporter of Brownie Knits serving as resident IT guy, photographer, and sometimes model. You can check out his creative writing talents on his website.
