Welcome to my knitting blog, where I share my continual knitting progress. I journal about my own designs, as well as my knits by other designers.
How it all started…
Inspired by cute and fashionable knitwear for children, I learned to knit when my son and daughter were young and quickly became obsessed. It’s a common story. I soon realized that this hobby was more than a fun pastime. It satisfies my craving to create something beautiful (hopefully). It gives me a sense of accomplishment. It opens new spaces for me to channel my love–for my family, friends, myself and even for my home.
I could go on and on, but most importantly I discovered that knitting is good for the mind. It can be challenging–as I prefer it to be–and it can be painstaking, but after a while it becomes a form of meditation. For me knitting is a way of life. Crocheting, embroidering, sewing, crafting and any other type of making easily fall into the same category. Knitting is my happy niche, where I release the cares of the world and throw myself into a pattern, seeking fulfillment in the creative process time and time again.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you’ll stick around and look through my work. Feel free to leave a comment or question on any of my posts. Happy knitting!
