About me
I joined MM as a way to hopefully collaborate with others, that like fashion and photography.

As new as this is for me, I really enjoy the designing, working with friends that I have used as models...and now I would really like to do my own photography for these projects.

What I do is...I knit!

I started knitting as an older lad and come from a much different background. I used wood for my art...not fiber.

I immediately fell in love with the simple act of pulling a strand of wool through a loop and repeating over and over.

At the extreme end of this simplicity, I fell in love with the complexity and challenge that existed when creating a garment from an idea. A garment that makes you look great, a piece of wearable art.

A garment that I could be proud of.

Not having been surrounded by knitters, I have no predisposition on how "it should be." And I carry this non-traditional knitting into most of what I do.

I want to create knitwear that "...is not your grandmas knits."

In fact, I want to create knitwear that your grandma may be a little shocked at.

As with all fashion - I want sexy...I want to push the "norm".

I want to design knitwear that doesn't hang, but embraces the wonderful curves of the body.

I want to design for today...

Because, knitting is so much more than the yarn.


Johnny..

My future goals:

Knitted Bikini
Johnny's version of the LBD
Functional wear that makes you feel good

Please contact me if you would like to collaborate on a project, from conception to display.
