So you’ve decided to start a blog…

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!

*If you have not joined Ravelry, do it immediately! It’s a wonderful repository of patterns, yarn information, designers, and forums all revolving around knitting and crocheting (with weaving intermixed). And it’s FREE! What’s not to love about that?

  1. Chairman, WOW! Love it, already. You might just make a knitter out of me yet. I told my mom to subscribe. She bought a Vogue Knit calendar that has a new stitch each month, she’s apsiring to great things in 2011. (We shall see).
