Yes, I am a teenager, and yes, I knit!  Yes, I write my own knitting patterns too. Pretty unusual, I know.

Designing my own knitwear has been a hobby of mine since 2009, during which time I’ve had opportunities to both publish patterns myself and be featured in UK and US publications.  If you’d like to read a lengthier chronicle of my crafty background, I posted about it here.

My designs can be found and downloaded here.  Hope you like!

    […] Most people think bloggers make the bulk of their income through ads, but the truth is that most successful bloggers also sell something of their own. Food bloggers sell ebooks, real cook books, or meal plans. Some bloggers sell digital files for people to purchase and print on their own. Others sale organization strategies. I recently discovered a blog that offers online styling services – to help you look Chic, Sophisticated and Attractive! Another example is this aspiring, young blogger who sales patterns to the clothing she crotchets. […]
