For as long as I can remember, I have always loved doing creative things. Over the years I have enjoyed a bit of sewing, decorating, cooking, paper crafting and more recently have become a bit obsessed with yarn!
About 8 years ago while living in Massachusetts (right before moving our family back to Texas), I picked up some knitting needles and set out to learn to knit. I started off learning some basics and made a scarf (probably everyone’s first project, right?). I moved on to washcloths, baby blankets, hats and then larger blankets for our sofa, never making more than one or two things a year. It wasn’t until right before our 8th baby was born that I started learning to make wearable items and that is when I truly got bit by the yarn bug.
Knitting and crocheting has become a passion of mine and while I still enjoy decorating and other creative outlets, working with yarn is something I have found I can do just about anywhere and at any time, alone, with my kids around me or at night watching TV with my husband.
With many of the wearable items that I have made, I have found myself tweaking patterns to make them fit exactly how I like things to fit, which has lead me to start designing some of my own patterns and recording them.
I hope you find my little space happy and inspiring! Thank you so much for stopping by. You can also find me on Instagram (@myblessedfarmhouse) and Pinterest (myblessedfarmhouse). I love making new yarn loving friends.
