Hello — I’m Cara. I was a newspaper features reporter for several years, but now I run my own crafty business, Mary Marie Knits. I still love to write, but I spend most of my time knitting, crocheting and assembling my products or selling them at local craft fairs, including San Francisco’s Renegade Craft Fair.
When I’m not working on my business, I love exploring the outdoors, reading, crafting, thrifting and playing with my kiddos.
My bio, the short version: I grew up in Lawrence, Kansas and moved to Des Moines, Iowa to attend Drake University. I have worked in Des Moines and Boulder, Colorado. Now I’m in the San Francisco bay area, where I live with my husband, Mike, our kids, Harper and Max, and our two dogs, Reggie and Sadie.
