Hello and Welcome to my brand-new Website!
My name is Kathrin and I am the Designer behind LuCookie Designs. I am living with my husband and our two cats in lovely town of Bad Honnef, Germany. Also born here some time too long ago, I went to study Biology in Bonn and did a project at MSU in the US. Sometime during my studies I started knitting and never stopped since.
My first project a grey scarf featuring an undefined number of stitches (as I was accidentally creating new stitches) directly went as a gift to my mom. She was nice and kind enough to thank me for it although its obvious flaws. Shortly after I tackled cables in my second project and successfully mastered almost every technique except for Kitchener stitching… This created my love-hate relationship with top down socks until I discovered Ravelry and the option to knit socks toe-up!
As soon as this happened I was completely lost in the fiber world! With Ravelry as an endless resource of patterns and enabling it was only a short way to discover the endless joys which are knitting related podcasts and knitting retreats. They have so much Inspiration to offer and often it feels like sitting down and knitting with a friend which you then can meet in person at a retreat and feel like you don’t have to get to know them anymore because you already do!
Soon after that during my time in the US 2014 I was able to enjoy a lot of the long craved for things that I just couldn’t order from Germany. Inspired by all of the lovely handmade things that were now around me I first started designing and also spinning. Now two years later back in Germany I try to establish a connection in my designs that connects the yarns, their colors and the textures and shapes we can knit them into.
As the search for a name of my small business came up I thought of our cats and how the two so different “Monsters” despite their differences connect and build a match perfect for each other. Luna the three colored rescue cat and Cookie the traditional Persian cat together form the name LuCookie. The logo was also inspired by them and designed by my talented sister in Law which captured every aspect of it as it could not have been done any better!
In the future I hope to publish so many more patterns of which many are already in my head, partly drafted, already knit in prototype or just waiting to be testknit! I would love to hear from you!
