I’m Eb Barkis from Olympia Washington who’s been knitting since 2015. My knit and traditional art work is inspired by color, nature, abstract themes, and pattern design. I enjoy experimenting with color and new patterns especially for items I’ve never made before. Pushing myself to try new making new things or attempting a new technique is what continues to excite me about knitting. The craft of knitting became my comfort during hard times as well as turning into my driving passion and what gives me so much joy in my life.
