This March will mark the one-year anniversary of my decision to turn a passion into a business. My mother and I taught ourselves how to knit when I was eight years old. I absolutely loved that I could create something out of just a pile of yarn. Since then, I have honed my skills and experimented with new stitches and writing my own patterns. It got to the point where I was making so many things, there were mountains of hats and scarves lying around the house. I decided it was silly to continue making things without someone to wear them.
