Partea Knits is a small business located in Northern BC, Canada, owned and operated with gratitude on the traditional, unceded territory of the Gitxsan people. Melissa (Hi, that’s me!) is the creative force behind Partea Knits and Brendan (my partner) helps with everything on the business side. I learned to crochet about 9 years ago and knitting came along when we moved to the north in 2018. I studied art in high school and university and have explored many different means of creative expression but nothing has really grabbed my attention as intensely as dyeing yarn. It’s the combination of colour, functionality and versatility that does it for me!
