Please welcome Janet as a team member of Anadiomena's Designs



I have been seriously knitting and designing for 5 years now. It all started one unusually cold winter in Vancouver, BC. Throughout the following years I was fortunate to develop friendships with a number of people; people that helped make this career path possible.

The first of those people is my husband, Peter, who is very supportive and helps whenever and however he can.  With Peter at my side I was set to venture further into the creative world of knitwear. From designing I naturally expanded into dying yarn; I could not think of a better way to get the exact yarn and color for any of my new designs I am dreaming of to get on my needles.  This is how Colour Adventures came to be. Soon after its conception, we were pleased to see Color Adventures evolve to a point where it was no longer possible for only me and Peter to operate.

I am very fortunate to work with a group of very talented knitters who test-knit my designs on a regular basis, always challenge me to be a better writer and trust my ideas no matter how crazy they might seem.  That is how I met Janet Harvey; she had answered one of my testing calls a few years back, and we have been working together ever since. To think it was only mere chance we met!

You all know Janet by now, she has been an ever present force for all my designs from the day we have met. She is always thoughtful, helpful, and supportive to everyone; she is always upbeat, resourceful, and has a great sense of style.

So, I am now very excited to officially add Janet as the newest member of Anadiomena’s Designs (combined for both Knitting and Colour Adventures), where she will be our Social Network Director/Coordinator, Tech Editor, Knitter Extraordinaire, and a Super Friend!

Janet has graciously agreed to help manage our website, blog, web albums, Facebook, Twitter and Ravelry, just to name a few responsibilities. With Janet taking control of social media, hopefully it’ll be easier to keep everyone updated on what’s new and exciting in Knitting and Colour Adventures.
One of the best things about having Janet on the team is the fact that she is like me, she is passionate about knitting and loves to share her passion. Having Janet join the team feels very natural, like it was meant to be. Together we’ll come up with all sorts of other fun ideas to work on together, so things will no doubt get exciting!

Anadiomena’s Designs is growing and getting more and more organized. With Janet as another enthusiastic team member things can only get better from here!
