Erin John's Profile

About

For as long as I can remember, I have watched my Mom crochet and knit gifts for friends and family. So, it came as no surprise to anyone that I followed in her shoes. As soon as we overcame a few obstacles (mostly, my being left handed) I was off and running, err knitting.

I tend to make things that I love and can use so, naturally, those items are brightly colored, based on the environment, and quite simple. Upcycling makes me happy and I do all I can to reuse as much as I can. I am also passionate about making items that can really be used, can get dirty, and can easily be washed without fear of damage to the article.

I have two kitties who both have HUGE personalities that provide so much entertainment. They both try to help me knit; but, more often than not, only create huge knots for me to untangle later…

When I'm not knitting I spend as much time as I can teaching yoga, camping, hiking, taking photos, or riding my bike. If ever there is an opportunity to travel anywhere (within reason), I'm usually game. That probably explains why I have been to Iceland THREE times and would gladly go later today if I could.
