Discover the mindfulness that comes with the rhythmic movement of each stitch

Welcome to moloneymakes! I’m Sophie Moloney; barista, knitter and enthusiastic eater(!)

I first learnt to knit around the age of 7 after I begged mum to teach me. I spent hours working up something that loosely resembled a square and remember the satisfying sense of achievement I felt after. Thus began a phase of knitting up square after square (I think I envisioned some magnificent blanket) which lasted a few months, perhaps a year, but faded as my young mind no doubt found another curiosity to bestow my concentration.

It wasn’t until my 20s that knitting made a reappearance in my life. In my years at university I fell ill, caught up in the depths of anorexia and battling mental illness and it was during my recovery that I rediscovered my needles. With each stitch I created, a little piece of me began to return and I have honestly never looked back since.

My mission now is to help spread little bit of that ‘thing’ that helped me several years ago. I want to help people find a little bit of mindfulness in their lives, a little moment of calm as their mind starts to quieten with the rhythmic movement of the needles. Whether it’s a moment for yourself after a long hard day at the office, or after taking care of the kids, or something a little deeper than that, it doesn’t matter. The important thing is that feeling; that’s what I want to help spread and share – the respite that can come with a few hours of stitching away with a cuppa and some biscuits close by.
