Welcome to Acme Knits!
My name is Shawn Glidden and I’m a knitter (and owner of Acme Knits) currently living in St. Paul, Minnesota.
When I realized how hard I was working in the publishing business I decided I could work that hard for myself (watch out what you wish for!) and started Acme Knits.
In addition to knitting one-of-a-kind art-to-wear pieces, commissions, and designing and writing patterns for hand knitters, I am a musician steeped in old traditions; old time Appalachian fiddle tunes, square dance calling, Cajun fiddling and Cajun accordion.
My life is as full as it can get!
Find me as Lulugal on Ravelry to see my patterns.
If you find yourself in Minneapolis on a Monday evening, come to the Eagles Aerie 34 for an old-fashioned square dance danced by a new generation (1st and 3rd Mondays) or a Cajun dance with the best of local musicians (2nd, 4th, and 5th Mondays)
