For the Love of Knitting

My Sister Knits provides a welcoming atmosphere for knitters of all skill levels, and promises an unforgettable experience while working with a world-class staff.

Our Team


Knitting has been a consistent outlet for creativity and happiness for Julie since she was young. At My Sister Knits, Julie finds herself fortunate enough to share her passion with the community. With the positive team and environment that My Sister Knits provides, clients of all skill levels can make the most of their knitting experience.


Diana recently retired from being an elementary school nurse for 25 years. Along with her husband, Bruce, they have relocated to Fort Collins from the Kansas City area. Now that Diana is finally here, working alongside her sister, Julie, it completes the dynamic and inspiration of My Sister Knits. She started knitting at the age of eight and her other hobbies include quilting, hiking, and birdwatching. Diana continues to grow in her knowledge of the ever-changing industry of knitting and is anxious to share that with you.


According to her mother, Jenny learned to knit when she was three. After moving to Australia in her early 30s, she found herself surrounded by knitters, and, with their help made her toddler a gorgeous fuzzy yellow sweater! She took a break from knitting after moving back to the U.S., but in 2012, a fortuitous meeting with a friend inspired a return. She looked for Learn to Knit classes, found one at My Sister Knits, and the rest, as they say, is history! Jenny enjoys creating special events at the shop and writing the blog, along with learning everything she can about the animals who give us gorgeous fibers! 


Carol took a re-intro to knitting class in 2009 and became a devoted student of the craft. Carol discovered My Sister Knits on vacation in 2013, declaring that it would someday be her local yarn store. Retirement brought she and her husband to Fort Collins in 2015, and Carol became a regular at Tuesday night knitting. Away from the shop, you can find Carol in the yard at home with her Westie, Bennie, reading, hiking, or volunteering with the local school band programs. Carol is inspired by the multitude of gifted knitters and fiber enthusiasts that enter the doors of My Sister Knits.
