Keith Leonard gained a love for knitting at the early age of 11 when he joined a lunchtime knitting program in his hometown of Haworth New jersey.

After working at 4 major knitting stores ranging from Upstate New York, New Jersey and New York City, he realized there was no specialized service for knitwear finishing and took the initiative to start his own business called “Knits All Done.” (a service for knitters to outsource their knits for professional finishing). Keith understands the fine difference between a “hand made” and “home made” finished garment. He now travels the country teaching multiple classes while selling his custom Zen Yarn Garden yarns and colors.
