About RJK

straight needles Running Jack Knits is a one-woman operation. I have been knitting since the summer of 2006 and am supported in my endeavors by one Fabulous Husband and, more recently, our darling daughter Z (the hapless model for most of my baby and toddler knits).

RJK got its name from a series of vignettes I was once writing, only one of which found its way onto this blog. (There may be more in the future, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.)

In 2010 I undertook the Pattern a Week project, writing and publishing a new pattern every week. Many of these are currently available for free and you can see the full list on the Pattern a Week page. Patterns which are permanently available for free are listed on the Free Patterns page, and patterns which are permanently for sale are on the Patterns for Sale page. In 2011 I will be going through the results of the Pattern a Week project, adding sizes and options, and the expanded patterns will be made available for sale.

Advertising space is not currently available for sale. If I find something I like, I'll gush about it for free.
