Knitting!

As some of you know (and maybe most of you don’t) knitting is a huge part of my life and I hope for it to be a really huge part of my future. I have been writing a few patterns and trying to build up some items to start my own Etsy shop and have a knitting pattern book in the works as well as a children’s chapter book that has a little something to do with the culture of knitting in the past (loosely). Actually, most of you probably don’t know that. I’m pretty self conscious about my goals for my future as well as my abilities to accomplish them, so I often hide them. If I don’t tell you, you won’t know if I fail at them, right? Well, it’s time for a new attitude! It’s time to express my goals so that all of you can tell me how great I am and how I am going to achieve them :). Just don’t ask me how they’re going or I’ll turn red. (joking. about the don’t ask part. not about the red part.)

So I just thought I would share with all of you the debut of my knitting on a mainstream (in the knitting world) blog!

I took that photo in Florida while we were on our honeymoon. (Yes. One of my goals for my honeymoon was to get an awesome photo of a tiny gnome on a beach. This blog has a competition every year for the best photo with one of her patterns in it with some pretty sweet prizes.)

The writer of this blog, Anna, is pretty much my hero and I aspire to be her some day, though I may not focus solely on knitting toys like she does. But she is just so good at it! And some of her pieces are truly works of art, and are displayed as such in galleries worldwide. It’s very cool.

Hope you all enjoyed this “Insight into Sarah.”

  1. if anyone can rock at knitting it’s you, Sarah! Those are some pretty sweet goals and I’m sure you’ll have them checked off your list in no time at all.

    I’ll have to do a photoshoot of Claire and her darling giraffe (his name is Gerard, by the way). Just stopped by to see what you kids are up to lately. I’ll have to come back and read some more when Claire and I don’t have the flu. Your awesome recipes deserve my full attention, but just for today…I can’t look at the pictures.
