About Me

Hello Friends!
My name is Ashley. My husband, Carl, and I have been married for 20 years and have 4 kiddos. Between homeschooling them and running them around to all of their activities and jobs they keep us pretty busy around here.

In my free time, I binge-watch true crime tv, read lots of fiction books, and listen to all kinds of music. Before I fell in love with these hobbies though, I fell in love with knitting and crocheting. About 19 years ago I picked up my first needle and I was hooked. (Ha… see what I did there?) I have always been so nervous to put the items that I make out for people to buy but let's be honest, there are only so many beanies and scarves one's family can actually use. When my family refused to amuse me anymore with my creations, Tightly Wound Knitwit was born.

Why Tightly Wound Knitwit you ask? Those who are closest to me know that I am wound pretty tight most days. Knitting and crocheting have been a wonderful outlet for me to ease my struggle with anxiety and depression. 

Every item in the shop has been handmade by myself. I pray that they are as much a blessing to you as they were for me to make.
