Hello! My name is Emma and I am just another knitter with a blog. My current obsessions include stranded knitting, dim sum, making pie crusts and the Hank Williams (Sr.) Pandora Station. I moved to the land of perpetual sunshine with my Robert and my kitty to find a full-time writing job. In the meantime, I blog for KnitCulture Studio.
I grew up fishing, canning, and crafting with my family in Adrian, OR. I earned a BA in English from the University of Oregon in 2009, and went back for a Medieval Studies Post-Bac in 2010. Until I recently, I was convinced that I was born in the wrong era: too roughspun for the 21st century. I realize now that there are countless others who not only prefer to make/grow/do it themselves, they believe the practical, handmade life to be the real “life of luxury.” This blog endeavors to share fun, frugal knitting ideas while networking with like-minded individuals. I love a good chat so please feel free to contact me about collaborative projects, crafty show-and-tell, book recommendations or juicy gossip.
