For the third episode of Any Stitch Will Get You There, I am chatting with Sami, who blogs over at Trouble Knits. While she is starting to dip her hand into designing, Sami primarily started knitting as a form of self-care, as a way to feel normal.
She learned as a young child, but didn’t really become a knitter until she was in college. We chatted one lovely afternoon about her experiences and what knitting means to her.
Definitely give this one a watch! Sami talks about knitting as a post-apocalyptic life skill, why she learned to knit (she liked feeling the yarn!), and why knitting makes her feel normal.
Check out some of her creations:
In addition to knitting, Sami is a one stop shop for graphic and instructional design. She has five years of experience as a graphic designer and photographer; almost two years as an instructional designer; and will have a combination BA/M.Ed from the Pennyslvania State University’s Schreyer Honors College in May 2016.
She creates engaging, beautiful, and research-informed materials that leverage interactivity and aesthetics into a meaningful product. She’s designed for groups ranging from United States military clinicians to middle school students to independent startups. No project is too big or too small. Find her at Orange Juice Diaries.
