Guest Post by Jana Wilde


I have somewhat of a sad-sap tale to begin with, of a time when my young family was completely broke for Christmas. I had a bag full of scrap yarn, and a faint (very faint) memory of my Mother teaching me how to knit when I was eight. With that vague recollection, the help of online tutorials, and the drive to create something extraordinary for my children, my knitting days began.

 I love to knit. Love it. Actually, I have somewhat of an addiction. I just can’t get enough. I’ll start into a project, get three-quarters of the way through, and jump to the next one. My mind is constantly two projects ahead of my fingers, and I get so excited about it that I just have to start, feeling the combination of wool and fibers slip through my fingertips. It’s sort of like knitting ADD if there is such a thing. I would horde yarn if I could, always having a stock of ammunition ready to fuel my ongoing knitting madness.

 So, whether it’s on a long road trip in the passenger side seat, watching the news at the close of the day, or finding a few quite minutes during naptime, I am a knitter. With the encouragement of a good friend, I have recently opened a shop on Etsy. My Inventory is still being built up, and due to my stock-pile of mostly finished/unfinished wonders, check back often for more amazing quality knits for your home and family.
