Safiyyah started off as a political and fashion journalist for indie publications and fashion websites in NYC. Tired of the city and fast fashion, she moved to the countryside, where she started her own business as a sustainable knitwear designer. Now, she is a full-time designer, upcoming author, and teaches knitwear design classes to budding designers. Still wanting to explore her journalistic roots, while feeding her passion for knitting, Safiyyah began True Crime and Knit, a true-crime podcast that delves into lesser-known cases often with some well-known guests from the knitting industry. Safiyyah lives in a tiny town of about 50 people in Indiana with her husband Jake, her son Beau, two cats, a dog, an angora bunny, and too many chickens.
