Never. Ever. Ever. Not. Knitting.
While I learned to knit when I was about eight, the passion (ummm... obsession...) really emerged during my years in Maine at Bowdoin College (GO U BEARS!!). I was gifted with sharing time and space with an amazing group of young women and dear friends, and we knit our way through the college days and nights, clicking the needles, with the soundtrack of our voices and laughter playing on and on, in and through it all. After college, I shared knitting time and space with friends and groups of friends, new and old, in all of my home "bases" -- from Massachusetts, to Colorado, to Minnesota, to Connecticut -- and in travels all around the world. I am just so very very grateful for so many amazing and wonderful stories "knit" into so many projects as the years have flown by.
Since those college years, I have had countless projects and products on and off the needles --- from Christmas stockings given to family and friends as wedding and new baby gifts, to baby blankets and baby sweaters, to graduation blankets, to prayer shawls, to welcome-to-your-new-home blankets and pillows, to dozens and dozens of sweaters, to purses and bags, and hats and mittens and scarves, and even one bathing suit --- and decided that I’d really love to expand my knitting sphere. And thus.... Polar Bear Knits!
It is a privilege and joy to share this journey with YOU.
