About Me

Hi! I’m Caryn, and I’m the face behind RDP Knits. I’m from a small town in WNY where I live with my husband and daughter. I was inspired to first start crocheting when I was pregnant. Not long after I tried to teach myself to knit without success. Finally, my Great Aunt showed me a few stitches and ever since then I have fallen in love with knitting!

I have a small knitting business called RDP Knits (formerly 3:23 Knits) where I make and sell primarily newborn photography props and some children & adult knits too. I also write knitting patterns that can be found in both my Ravelry store and Etsy shop.

There’s so much in life to love. I first and foremost give all the glory to God. I absolutely love being a mom to my little girl and nothing has given me more joy in life than her. I also have a love for photography. In my spare time (haha, more like most of my time) I work as a veterinary technician. If I had my way I would be knitting full-time and homesteading part-time. We live on a small farm (my mom’s right next door) where we enjoy horses, dogs, cats, and chickens.
