Welcome to KnittedbyBarbara!
My mum taught me to knit when I was six years old. Since I am left-handed I instinctively wanted to knit from right to left, so it is thanks to her persistence that I learned to knit “correctly”. My first knitting project in school was actually a little teddy bear in red cotton and after many, many weeks, I finally finished one leg. My teacher lovingly turned it into a little purse which I still have today.
Now, many years and many knitting projects later, my knitting skills and speed have improved considerably, but my favorite knits are still teddy bears and other cozy little items.
Thanks for visiting my shop.
