Hi! I’m EJ McColl. The knitter behind McCOLLmeknitty.

Before I learned how to knit, I learned how to crochet. My grandmother taught me when I was 9 on a 16 hour flight from the Philippines to San Francisco.

In January 2015, I wanted to learn something new; hopping aboard the “New Year, New Me” bandwagon.

I went to the local crafts store (the only crafts store) and found a beginner’s knitting kit while looking for beads to sew on my Sinulog shirt. I was always so curious how those lovely knitted cabled scarves were made so I bought the kit that same day. I went home and watched YouTube videos on “How to Knit” and I’ve been addicted ever since.

Almost a year and a half later, with the support of my husband, we opened McCOLLmeknitty!

It’s a new Etsy shop and still in the works, but I’m always looking for ways to improve on it so you can enjoy the experience of shopping handmade.
