About this blog


I learned how to knit when I was 3 years old. It’s true. My mom and grandmother taught me as this was the primary activity for them in the evenings. I wanted to learn and although at first my dad thought it would be too dangerous for me to handle needles, my mom and grandma did’t share the same opinion. So I learned.

My first project was, of course, a scarf. Who wouldn’t want to knit something colourful and long and goes on and on? I soon noticed that I was a lot slower than my “teachers” and I wanted to go faster. But my little hands wouldn’t handle it. As I got more experienced and older, I started getting the hang of it.

In this blog I will be posting pictures and descriptions of my creations. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you so much for visiting my new blog and liking my post! I love your blog and your knitting is so lovely, I hope to be progressing to what I think are harder patterns and I hope you will be able to stop by and see the results as I go

  2. Hello
    I’ve seen some of your photos about your work with the knitting needles. I really love the colors that you choose. The designs in the items for kids are very fun!

    Like your story, my mother and grandmother are excellent knitters, but the difference is that I never wanted to learn with her, in my head I had other idea about this.

    Until recently I started doing it and I’m amazed at how magical it is. Now, every time when I speak with my mother is amazing because we understand each other very well when we talk about this obsession for buying yarn and for the excitement for start a new projects.

    P.s Thanks for visiting my blog πŸ™‚

    • Thank you for your nice words. And thanks for following my blog. I loved your blog too. You are making some beautiful creations πŸ™‚

      I understand when you say that you now have a “knitting” connection with your mother. It’s amazing that when I was a teenager I didn’t even want to hear about knitting and sewing just because my mother loved them. I was a bit of a rebel πŸ˜€ But now that I went back to knitting, I realize how much I had missed it. πŸ™‚

      Keep up the great work! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by

  3. Dear t.e.d.d.y.,

    • That’s wonderful! It’s amazing how knitting transforms you. And even if you take a long break from it, you always go back to it as if you never stopped πŸ™‚
      Thanks for visiting my blog πŸ™‚ I love yours too.

  4. wow! amazing… I’ve started crocheting when I was ten and can’t still figure out how to create a scarf. I became addicted to it when I stayed home 15 years later but with the help of crocheting books with instructions I painstakingly deciphered… you’re exceptional to start at 3 ! Is knitting easier than crocheting? I have no idea… ummm, anyway, thanks for dropping by at my blog and thanks for the like. God bless..

    • Thank you! πŸ˜€ It’s impressive how your persistence and effort paid off. Never stop learning. That’s the key. Way to go!
      I think knitting was a bit easier for me because you can see it become a whole piece a lot faster lol But I love crocheting just as much now. I think as a young kid knitting just made more sense to me.

  5. What a great website you have here! So much to see, to read, to enjoy! I look forward to more of this and thank you for visting my blog. With warm greeting form Ohio, Johanna

  6. Thank you for your comment. My blog is mainly about knitting. And running has only recently become a highlighted topic on my blog. πŸ™‚ I’m sorry to disappoint but I cannot stop writing about knitting πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog. Your work is very pretty! I wish I could knit better (I’m still at the “scarf stage”). I have friends and family who crochet amazing things. I do a lot of sewing. Mostly stuffies for my kids. Hope you come back sometime soon.

    • The scarf stage is my favourite! I always have a simple scarf on the needles because it lets you knit without counting stitches πŸ˜€ It’s one if those project you do when you are relaxing and just want to knit knit knit πŸ™‚ Way to go!

  8. Hi,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. As a new blogger its very encouraging to have experienced and talented bloggers like you to come and visit. I really appreciate the encouragement and hope you will visit again. Please feel free to leave me bits of advice too!!
    XOXO…

    • You are so welcome. And thank you for taking the time to visit mine πŸ™‚ I love your blog – it’s so colourful and cheerful. And you’re such a great knitter! So talented. Keep up the great work. And welcome to the blogosphere πŸ˜‰

  9. I learned to knit at a very young age, too and all the women in my family on both sides were knitters and engaged in other needle crafts as well. I hope girls are still learning these skills, but am not sure they are with all the diversions that technology offers. Thanks for visiting my blog and I will enjoy taking a look at yours.

    • Thanks so much, Kerri. I agree with you about learning handcrafting skills. Technology is definitely a distractor. But it’s so important to create with our hands. I also hope that many girls are learning these skills. I have 2 boys but they see me knitting and sewing all the time. And I know a few men who knit and sew. So I’d be more than happy to teach my boys too… if they are willing to learn. πŸ™‚

  10. I also learned to knit at an early age from my mom and grandmother. I used to go to my grandmother’s knitting group growing up on friday nights and it developed an unstoppable love of knitting for me.
