Hello, my name is Michelle. I am the Creator behind Riverblue Designs.
I have a love for nature and being outdoors. One of my favorite things is going for walks and spending time with nature through our four seasons in Manitoba. Whether it’s a beautiful sunny day or cloudy and gray, there is so much beauty in nature all around us, all you have to do is take the time to appreciate it.
The inspiration behind Riverblue Designs began while spending time outdoors with my beautiful Golden Retrievers, River & Blue. In my pursuit of staying warm and comfortable on our outdoor walks, I started creating my own hand knit modern knitwear accessories.
This was the foundation for Riverblue Designs.
An incredibly talented European woman educated me on the art of knitting in the 90’s and my love for knitting started there and has never faded. This passion brought out a creative side in me that I didn’t know existed. I love challenging myself to learn new techniques and new patterns. I am proud of my artisanal skills and the experience I have gained over the years as a knitter.
My knitting is an exploration of color and texture as each wool fibre is transformed from a strand gliding through my fingers, across my needles, and emerges as a beautiful piece that is as unique as I am. The possibilities for creativity are endless when exploring the art of knitting. Each piece that I knit is functional, modern and wearable. I have an incredible amount of fun working with quality fibres in both bold colors and subtle neutrals.
My passion for knitting continues to inspire me each day creating unique pieces using a timeless craft.
