Hi! I’m Ashley Leonard, the owner and designer of French Soul Knittery. My grandmother was an expert knitter who always made something special for me since childhood. I decided to pay homage to my grandmother and the memory of her creativity by learning how to knit. Overtime I realized that maybe, just maybe, I could share my passion for knitwear and provide comfort and style to others.
Knitwear should not be boring or bland. I like funky colors, colors that standout and I make knitted pieces that have personality.
I come from a film background, working on film and commercial sets and most recently working for the domestic goddess herself (guess who?!). I love being creative and working with my hands. There is nothing better than imagining a piece in my mind, sketching it out, finding the softest yarn and finally creating it.
When you purchase an item from my shop, I take great pride in making it the best it can be. You will get a knitted piece that is made with the softest yarn and with the highest quality.
If you are looking for the perfect knitted scarf, headband, purse or cowl, stop by French Soul Knittery.
See you at my shop!
