So after a long hiatus for the winter, Any Stitch Will Get You There is back! Episode 7 features Sarah Wilson from The Sexy Knitter, and it is definitely worth the wait. Sarah is such an accomplished designer, and I’ve been a fan of her work since before I started knitting. Her sweaters, dresses, and skirts are so innovative and everything would be in my closet if I had all the hours to knit everything. Flip through a sample of her… Read more »

  For the 6th episode of Any Stitch Will Get You There, I am so excited to introduce you to Sarah from Knit York City. I met Sarah a few years ago when I was just learning how to knit. I didn’t know who she was, and I can’t remember what we talked about, but I remember that I was incredibly frustrated with knitting, and I left the conversation feeling very empowered. Since then, I’ve watched each of her pattern… Read more »

For the 5th episode of Any Stitch Will Get You There, I’m chatting with Dianna from Paper Tiger. Dianna was a full time knitting designer out of Seattle, but she recently moved to Norway for grad school! If you’ve seen any of her designs before, you can tell her designs are heavily influenced by Scandinavian designs.

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… Read more »

For my first guest on Any Stitch Will Get You There, I am so pleased to have Alexandra Tavel from Two of Wands. If you haven’t heard of Alexandra or her shop, Two of Wands, you’re in for a treat. Her designs are very romantic and a bit bohemian. I’m also madly in love with her animal hoods that I’m pretty sure can also be worn by adults… We met in Central Park one sunny afternoon to chat knitting, and Alexandra shared… Read more »

Intro: Any Stitch Will Get You There

What makes someone want to knit? Many of my friends are not yet knitters. I hold out hope for most of them. 😉 Many non-knitters are intrigued by those of us who tend to carry yarn and needles around and knit in places like the subway and various waiting rooms. They’re intrigued, but not ready to commit, and I completely understand. I wanted to create a little 3-5 minute documentary that explained how amazing knitting can be: It’s great for… Read more »
