I love being at home. A quiet day is a perfect day for me. Simply stated, I am happiest when my life is as simple as possible.
Taking time to breathe. I spent years juggling conference calls, spending hours behind a desk, balancing stress with coffee, and always had my phone with me. I loved the fast-paced energy until it nearly broke me. I will never go back to that way of life.
My mom taught me knitting basics when I was probably about 10 years old. Remember those pastel aluminum straight needles? And the clicking sounds they made… good stuff!
The BEST stress relief In my 30’s I picked up some old knitting needles and got out some yarn to calm my mind… It wasn’t long until I was knitting something every day. My eyes opened to so many techniques and yarns and stitches. I may have gotten a little obsessed but it was so calming and soothing to do, I have just never put the yarn down.
I do what I like! – I knit English style / MagicLoop in the round / DPNs for fun / Obsessed with details / Minimal Yarn Stasher
My patterns & designs – I write patterns for knitters to feel happy and calm! For the newer knitters (like I was) I will do my best to keep you from feeling confused or defeated. And for the experienced knitters that don’t really need all the details, I hope to inspire and maybe share some new tips and tricks.
