Hi there! I think an introduction is in order. My name is Amy and I knit. Actually, I’m more like obsessed with yarn and knitting is the outlet in which I can really use the yarn I love. During the day I am a librarian (aspiring is a better description), I love to organize and gather information. I also have cats. As you can see, I’m what people think of as a “stereotypical librarian,” which I can assure you was not done on purpose. Cats, books, yarn are the loves of my life and I would not change it for anything in the universe.
Ok enough about my background, this blog is about yarn and knitting. I will add that my favorite yarn to use is wool. I think Merino and Peruvian sheep wools are the two types that really make my heart sing. Do you have any favorites or stand-outs that find their way into your stash time and time again?
Since this is my first post I’d like to finish off with a link to a pattern I designed. I would not consider myself in any way a designer, however, this little quick knit was something I had a hard time finding a pattern for so I went ahead and put it together out of necessity. These two were given to my work colleagues (one drinks tea, the other coffee) as Christmas gifts. Just a little something to keep that hot drink hot. I hope you enjoy! You can find the pattern on Raverly*: here or on the Designs page.
Cheers, keep warm and happy knitting!
