Welcome to Knit a Bit of Whimsy

Sarah from Knit a Bit of WhismsyI’m Sarah: a knitter, mom, coffee addict, wine drinker, and nature lover. When I’m not curled up knitting or reading with a cup of black coffee, you’ll often find me walking in the woods near my small town in British Columbia, Canada.

I’m passionate about slowing down our “Fast Fashion” culture, and encouraging people to buy or create wardrobe pieces that will last you for years. I hope the patterns you find here will express your personality, while still being timeless pieces that won’t feel out of style after a season!

I’ve been selling finished items on Etsy for several years now, but to be honest, I love creating one-of-a-kind pieces, and have trouble making anything the same way twice! Plus, knitting like a mad woman for half the year is just too time consuming with two little ones at home. So I’ve decided to take the plunge into knitwear design – I’d love for you to follow my journey over on the blog. I’m not sure it will be less time consuming, but at least I’ll be working on my own schedule 😉

My designs are inspired by nature, slow living, and my crazy kids. The unicorn hat pattern was dictated inspired by my daughter (5 at the time), who had very specific instructions on how she wanted it to look. She later ordered coordinating slippers (she was 7) that you can check out on Instagram. My kids love colorful and whimsical pieces that show off their personalities – unicorns and rainbows for my daughter, and bright, bold colors for my son.

So poke around the website or say hello! I’d love to hear about your journey, and what inspires you 💙
