Knitting Blog

The best meditation for me is the sense of gratitude for every single day that I am blessed to have – good or bad, exiting or exhausting, happy or heartbreaking – all of this is part of life, so complicated, unexpected, but oh so beautiful! This was a year of breaking through my fears, of having a little bit more faith in myself and lots lots of work, both for The Gift Of Knitting and for my new job. Though it was definitely not the easiest twelve months, I wouldn’t change a single thing – I learned so much and met some very special people that I know I will carry in my heart through all my life.

Main projects of 2017

“Add One Stitch Knitting” book for beginners. Available for pre-order!

Vintage collection for Moeke Yarns – Heritage, Ivy and Wheat sweaters.

Rain sweater for We Are Knitters.

California crop top for Wool and The Gang.

I got the chance to work with the most amazing fibers – baby alpaca, pima cotton, organic rustic wool, mohair, merino… I would love to thank all the yarn companies who trusted me with their beautiful products, it was a true pleasure to create yarn photo journals and knitting with them – it really shows how passionate you are about fiber! Thank you for inspiration!

Thank you for your amazing support this year, for your emails, comments and just for being here, inspiring me to work harder and grow!

I would like to wish you to never lose this sense of wonder that makes you look at the world around you a little bit closer and notice these magic moments that each day is full with!

Have a wonderful New Year with your family!

See you in 2018!

Love, Alina.
