What Can I Do For You?

I’m not just someone who’s wild about knitting. I’m also a freelance writer, editor, and document design nerd. I am pleased to offer the following services to crafters and bloggers:

Pattern Testing

Are you in need of testers for your original knitting or crochet pattern? Email the pattern to theknittingwordsmith [at] gmail [dot] com or send a link to your testing group on Ravelry or elsewhere online. I would love to provide constructive input and get involved with your project. I would also be happy to spread the word to readers so more test knitters can get involved.

Document Design

Providing your knitting pattern as a polished document helps you stand out in the crafting community. I work with Adobe InDesign and Microsoft Publisher to create PDF files that perform well in both print and digital formats.

Pattern or Product Review

If you have a craft pattern or product that readers of this blog would enjoy, contact me with the details. Your pattern or product will be featured in a blog post with links back to your web page. I can also organize a giveaway of your product if you are interested.


Crafting is more fun when you can share your talents with others. Please check my commission page to learn more, then contact me with details about your commission project.

Blog Setup and Post Editing

Starting your own blog can be a little daunting. Plus, a second eye is always helpful when trying to catch those pesky spelling and grammar errors. I did the initial setup for Steven’s Toybox, where I am also the resident content editor. I would be happy to offer the same services to you.
