Eat.Sleep.Knit is the brainchild of Erin Walker and her lovely husband Dan. It was born in Erin’s closet in 2007 and has grown to be a place of sanity and community for yarn fiends looking for luxury, hand dyed and painted yarn. The Yarnathon, Knit-A-Long, trivia, lotto tickets, and fun challenges like a T-shirt scavenger hunt are what make Eat.Sleep.Knit the yarn shop of your dreams!


Erin, owner and founder of ESK, is the proud Mom of an 11 month old baby boy named Levi. When she’s not singing along to bad country music in the car with Levi, you’ll find her knitting while re-watching Dawson’s Creek or forcing her hubby to watch Down to You…again! If you can manage to not crack a smile while Erin is around, you are ridiculous (her favorite word)!

Emily L
Emily L, Photographer and Editor extraordinaire, is a member of the Atlanta Women’s Chorus and loves to belt out Don’t Stop Believin’! What does she believe in? Living by the motto “It is what it is.” She is an avid reader, loves The Muppets, and would die if she could find a quart of the seemingly extinct Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby!

Jess has a growing little family comprised of: 2 darling kitties (Skatha and Poe), tree frogs, fire bellied toads, and a few fish! When not searching for a new Hello Kitty plush or buying Halloween decor, you’ll find Jess savoring a pint of Jeni’s Savannah Buttermint ice cream. She could spend hours smelling all the new lotions in the store Lush and loves Pearl Jam.

Emily K
Emily K, Social Media & Marketing Manager, loves to shop for antiques and collects a plethora of them! From vintage cameras and radios to 50s spools of thread and buttons, she adores it all! She has 2 kitties (Ollie and Bianca), thinks “everything happens for a reason”, and absolutely cannot live without peanut butter cake!

When Janine isn’t sitting in the drive thru at Starbuck to get her iced coffee, you’ll probably find her watching home improvement shows with her girl kitty, Gary. She loves going on long hikes, listening to the band Fleet Foxes, learning about Neuroscience, and looking for a new glazed ceramic coffee mug.

Aside from her talents as our Graphic Designer, Jenny is double jointed and can do a lip wave! She cannot resist a sale at Dick Blick to pick up her prized art supplies. If she’s not drawing or painting, you’ll find Jenny watching the movie Teen Witch with her kitty Puddy. While knitting, she loves listening to Queen and Leslie and The Lies.

Office Manager Lindsay loves her 3 adopted dogs (Buster, Bailey, and Gizmo) and spoils them rotten! As a Memphis, TN native, Lindsay loves her peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. She never misses an episode of any MTV reality show and regularly tunes in to NPR.

Wendy the Wool Winder is our resident baker who uses her hand-made wool potholders to pull delicious confections from the oven. When it’s too hot to bake, Wendy loves Tastykake’s Butterscotch Krimpets. She loves going to the library and reading with her 5 girl kitties (Sparky, Skylar, Inky, Coffe, and Toffee). If she can’t find the answer in a book, Wendy loves using Google; especially to find new inspiration for her next knit.

Jackie loves all things girly! She is addicted to buying new handbags, shoes, make up, and yarn. When she isn’t searching for the next Turkish drop spindle to add to her collection, you’ll find her walking her 3 dogs (Gus, Argo, and Oona). Jackie has a secret affinity for trashy romance novels (don’t we all?), Sci Fi TV shows, shopping, and lemon bars/pie.
