Turning The Knitting World Upside Down!

About Us

Alexis developed this amazing system out of pure frustration while working on a big, bulky blanket with her favorite knitting group.

It was painful and heavy, making knitting for long stretches of time impossible.

Suddenly,  an idea popped into her head.

She grabbed some knitting tools and supplies, made some modifications, and started knitting quickly and effortlessly.

“How is it that no one has ever thought of this?” she thought. And then, she got to work!

After building her own prototype, she discovered that she could knit for hours without strain and pain on her hands and wrists.

Ironically, after the needles were invented, Alexis had a serious accident requiring surgery and rehab, and couldn’t knit at all for over a year

A tool that was born out of frustration would ultimately become a necessity for Alexis, which helped her to appreciate the value and impact of her invention more than ever. 

Fast forward to today, and the My Two Ladies® Patented Ergonomic Luxury Knitting Needle System is available for all to enjoy, along a growing line of luxury fiber art tools and accessories.

They are beautiful, functional and gentle on your hands, wrists, and upper body.

Alexis sincerely hopes My Two Ladies® luxury fiber arts products bring as much joy to you as they do to her.

Alexis developed this amazing system out of pure frustration while working on a big, bulky blanket. It was painful and heavy, making knitting for long stretches of time impossible, so she learned all she could about bringing an invention to life. After building her own prototype, she discovered that she could.

 

"Our joy of creating brings us together and creates a feeling of belonging."

"Knitting has given me the opportunity to be part of an indescribable bond between creative fiber folks of varying age, ethnic and social backgrounds, many of whom I would probably have never met otherwise.
