Hi there, I'm Amanda.
My love of wool started a few years ago and just keeps growing. I began crocheting when I was 8, and picked up knitting 5 years ago. Now I'm a knitting instructor at the local yarn shop, The Embraceable Ewe.
I've been lucky enough to have knitting send me on a few adventures. Three summers ago, the shop owner, Erin, her cousin, Kelly, and I were chosen to appear on DIY's Uncommon Threads. We were flown to California and taped two episodes: one featuring recycled sweater bags! THEN, my photo of my daughter was chosen for the cover of the knitty.com 07 calendar. Who knew knitting could be so exciting?!
My other passion is for doing what God tells me to do, and recently that's been helping Buffalo's inner city to change things around. Buffalo is one of the poorest cities in the US. I work with an organization called Peace of the City that brings art, reading, school…
