That's when I started to dig into the online world of yarn and discovered so many techniques, constructions and concepts I had never heard about before.
Fast forward a few years and now I run my blog Knitting with Chopsticks fulltime where I share my easy knitting & crochet patterns.
My goal is to break down knitting and crochet so they become simple enough for you to create exactly what you want, the way you want it.
After a few years of sharing my patterns online, I realised it wasn't enough. Too many crafters are alone in their crafting journey. In September 2023, I hosted the Crochet Blanket Summit. That's when I truly realised the power of a loving community of crafters to cheer you on and learn with.
The day after the summit was over, I dove straight back in and started planning the next one but I knew that wasn't enough. A 3 day intensive event is amazing, but I needed and wanted to create an ongoing special place, for people like you, to expand their skills, learn, exchange and have fun in the process; to discover all the possibilities yarn has to offer with people who just get it.
That's where the Chopstick's Stitching Squad comes in!
