I wanna learn to knit

Thursday, January 22, 2015

"I wanna learn to knit"

This is the comment I get the most when people hear I am a knitter. And it is my passion and mission to turn anyone who wants to be a knitter, into one!

To achieve this, I am hosting local knit nights, dream of opening my own shop and plan to list resources and videos here to help anyone who needs help!

I know it is overwhelming....especially just going to the yarn shop to get your supplies ("why would I need 5 needles with no ends?????") So I'm more than happy to answer ANY question you may have!!!

Very soon I will have videos hosted here....it is in the works!

How can I help you find your passion for knitting?

Giving Back

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

I have been trying to think of ways I can use my little business to give back to my community, my country, my world.

This evening I did some brainstorming and decided I will be donating infant hats throughout the year to the local children's hospital and 10% of all sales will be donated to disaster relief. So often I only think about giving back during the holidays or when disaster hits...but I want to make a conscious effort to do this year round and get my kids involved too! I know it won't be an earth shattering total...but this is so important to me!

Thank you for supporting my little business over the last 6 years and here's to the year 2015...The year we give back!!

Little Miss A is rocking the 'Charlie' which is available in newborn and 3-12 months!! It's not currently in the shop, but you can contact me for a custom order! :)

Knitting is good for more than the soul

Saturday, January 3, 2015

I love that there are more and more stories (and hopefully scientific studies) showing how good knitting is for your health! Of course I love knitting and love the products that come from my knitting...but thinking that maybe I'm helping my health too is pretty darn cool!
