ōSHən Knits

Knitwear created by Marine Biologist Vanessa Fleming

As a generational knitter from the age of 5, I started with simple scarf and blanket patterns, always having a love-hate relationship with knitting. After I completed my Zoology degree in Ireland, I took a Fisheries Observer position working aboard commercial fishing vessels in the Pacific Northwest. With all of the down time on the ocean, I began to educate myself in different knitting techniques and started to create my own ocean inspired knitwear. It was this moment I realized my passion for knitwear design. With support from my creative husband, I decided to pursue a one woman business that creates designs perfect for those learning how to knit.  Knitting is my therapy and with each piece I design I want to create an experience that will bring peace and a sense of accomplishment.  My designs are inspired by so many talented knitters and indie yarn dyers and without them I would not be the knitter I am today.
