Friends through Knitting

Like many knitters, I spend entirely too much time putzing around on Ravelry dreaming about all of the overly ambitious projects I will likely never have the time to complete.  Adding the projects to my Favorites list is oddly satisfying and allows me to catalog beautiful patterns - saving them for a point in my life when there will surely be more time for knitting.

Last year, during various pattern searches, I kept finding my way to the work of Sara Gresbach of Front Porch Knitting.  Sara's adorable children model many of her designs.  It's hard to know for sure if it was her cutie patootie kids that captured my attention initially, or her fun, cleverly designed patterns.  Either way, I realized that we had a similar style and I wanted to connect with her.  Not surprisingly, Sara and I clicked right away and a friendship developed.  Despite never having met in person (Sara lives in Wisconsin and I'm in Colorado), I feel as though we could meet for coffee and talk for hours!  She and I eventually decided to work together, combining her patterns and my hand dyed yarn.  We now offer three of Sara's designs as fun-to-knit kits.  

Sara's newest design, the Clary Cowl and Clary Mitts, knit with Luna Grey Calypso yarn, are in the testing phase and should be released soon.  And, she is working on a brand new pattern using our newly introduced Aspen Sport yarn.  This design will be a loose-fitting, open weave, casual, yoga-type sweater.  I am super excited to see what is sure to be another stunning design!

  1. These are all gorgeous pieces of knitting and the yarn is beautiful. I can't find any yarn I like as much. And I LOVE yarn.
