Jasmin Tripathy first discovered her passion for knitting right here at Fuzzy Goat. Jasmin took a Learn to Knit class and the rest was history. She says; “Cadence and Carolina helped me work through the most complex of patterns to the point that I now help designers perfect their patterns. Knitting has helped me relieve stress, work through anxieties and make friends I would never thought I would have. I love playing with different colors and techniques and breaking the stereotype surrounding our fiber world.” Jasmin is studying Operations and Information Management with a minor in Information Technology at University of Massachusetts Amherst.
