Why MY TWO LADIES™?


Alexis Mantione, Creator/Owner

My Two Ladies™. It’s more than a knitting needle. It’s more than a name. It’s a tribute to knitting and to the two amazing owners/sisters of my local knitting studio. Not only did they teach me to knit, but so much more. They gave me the opportunity to be part of an indescribable bond between a group of ladies of varying age, ethnic and social backgrounds, whom would probably have never met otherwise. Thank goodness, after retirement, they followed their dream of opening a knitting studio.

I invented My Two Ladies™ out of pure frustration. There had to be a better way to knit this big and bulky blanket. It was exhausting and very time consuming, with either straight or circular needles. While at the studio, an idea popped into my head. I grabbed some knitting tools and supplies, made some modifications, and started knitting quickly and effortlessly. My two dear teachers kept repeating “how is it no one ever thought of this?”.

Well I thought of it, I patented it, I manufactured it ….. and almost a year later….. My Two Ladies™ Adjustable Straight Knitting Needle System is now available for all to enjoy. They are beautiful, functional and a pleasure to work with. I hope My Two Ladies™ bring as much joy to you as it has to me.

Happy knitting,
Alexis
