About Knitcole


Hello, I’m Nicole

I’m a lover of all things handmade, banjos, nature, folk art & music and anything that reminds me of simpler times.

I’m married to the most amazing man, Mr. Coleman and we have a sweet little chihuahua named Toots, (like a Tootsie pop not like ‘toot your horn’,) and a silly Boston Terrier, (my boy named Sue,) who keeps us very busy!

Knitcole was created in 2007.

This is when I realized that my love for knitting and crocheting could be transformed into something that was more than just a hobby. I sold my first beanie that year and it’s been quite a journey since then. From beanies and baby booties back in the days when I didn’t even know how to use my sewing machine to aprons and dolls created from my own patterns using my sewing machine. It’s been quite the journey indeed!

I first created my blog in 2008 as a way for me to chronicle my personal adventures in life in business. My blog has changed and transformed many times both literally and figuratively! And it has now finally found it’s direction…I think!

My blog is here to tell the story of my sweet, little business. It may not be a mega business that will pay all of my bills but it will be my very own little adventure that could bring in a couple dollars while doing what I love.

Not every post will be directly related to my business, (although most will center around knitcole or some sort of crafting inspiration.) Since my business is an extension of my personal life sometimes there will be posts about the other parts of my life that add to who I am as a burgeoning entrepreneur and even posts that are just plain silliness or things that make me happy!

Thank you for visiting! I hope that my blog will bring a smile to your face and perhaps a little inspiration that comes from a crafty place.
