I’m Mari, a maker living outside Raleigh, NC. Craft is a way of life for me – in addition to the fiber arts, I make felt floral arrangements and do a little graphic design for fun.
Wait a minute… you’re not Betty?
So… Betty is more of a persona. To me, Betty is a little salty and a whole lot of practical. She’s not here to put up with anyone’s nonsense. She’s kind of a bad ass. Bad Betty is who I want to be when I grow up.
You know what’s also bad ass?
Knitting. It’s not just for grannies. I’ve been knitting for over 10 years now. Knitting is as much a part of my story as Betty is. I enjoy sharing details about my perpetual sweater knitting over on Instagram – accompanied by dog photos, fat positive conversation, and a hefty dose of snark. Hence, Bad Betty Knits.
I like solving problems.
Sometimes that problem is tracking your swatches, and sometimes it’s helping you tell a non-knitter how to avoid destroying that handmade gift you spent hours on.
Sometimes it’s having too much money burning a hole in your pocket 😉 Whatever your reason for stopping by, I hope you find something here to meet your creative and crafting needs. If I made you snort laugh in the process, all the better!
Thanks for stopping by!
