    Founder, designer and head of production

    Hi 🙂 Welcome to my knitting universe. I work as a school teacher, and in my spare time I love to knit on my knitting machine. In 2015 and 2016 I attended in the STOLL training center of knitting and programming (in Reutlingen, Germany):
    1. Use of the CMS (how to handle the knitting machine)
    2. M1plus - Handling and Pattern Designing (programming the knitting machine)
    3. M1plus - Fully Fashion & Special (more programming features)
    I design and knit all the models. I love to explore technical features and to combine it with different yarn texture and again be absorbed in the colours. I so not have the patience to hand knit; I want the result as fast as possible. My knitting passion started with domestic knitting machines. Please checkout my blog about machine knitting: MayasKnit.
