Oh, hello. I’m Dianne – the owner, maker, and doer behind DI&Q, a studio producing chunky hand-knit accessories for the modern adventurer. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area where the weather often calls for something cozy.
When I was a wee girl, I would sometimes accompany my parents to their part-time job as office night custodians. There, I’d sneak into cubicles, crawl beneath office desks, and gather up stray paperclips…to make jump ropes. That’s where it all began – my knack for “making stuff.” Ever since that first paperclip jumprope, I knew I’d enjoy a life of turning nothings into somethings.
So today, as a fiber artist, freelance project & event manager, and DIY junkie, I turn balls of yarn into wearables, creative ideas into projects, and cardboard boxes into…well, anything.
This blog is an effort to organize my obsessions, share my creative processes and daily inspirations, and encourage others to live creative lives. Enjoy!
