All things cozy and soft.

The arts have called to me from a young age - music, theatre, painting, film, you name it... and a love for crafting tangible items grew out of those.
As a child I would cross-stitch, finger knit, draw, even build small creations. At the age of 23, a dear friend of mind taught me the basic knit stitch and let me borrow her needles to practice. I have never been the same, and I lament all the lost years prior - I could have been making beautiful soft things for so long!
I went wild with it instantly, though, and with each project learned new skills and gained knowledge about yarn and fibers. It quickly became too much to contain to just myself and friends. And so I bring you Basic Stitch, my way of sharing this passion of mine with the world. Thank you for visiting me.

    I believe there's nothing like a good cup of tea and soft, cozy things to make life a little bit lovelier. On any given day, you can probably find me in my craft nook, knitting and listening to a podcast or audiobook, or sometimes watching a movie.
