I’m Renee Leverington and I’m a knitwear designer and yarn dyer. I grew up in Tucson, Arizona but I’ve been living in Iowa since 2004.

I’ve been a crafter for most of my life and have enjoyed many needlearts including crochet, knitting, and cross stitch. I learned how to crochet at the age of 7 and taught myself how to knit in my early 20’s.

I created Goddess Knits, in 2005, as a means to help support a failing yarn shop. It began with the very first, original, Mystery Shawl which was presented in a knit-along as a free pattern. It has continued to grow, from there, into a large line of handknitting designs including socks, mittens, and other accessories, as well as a large variety of lace shawls.

If you didn’t already know, I am also a psychic intuitive/psychic medium and I do intuitive readings; you can find my other website at ReneeLeverington.com.
