I would like to take a moment and introduce myself. I’m Amanda the maker of hand knitwear and owner of Little Bitty Delights. I live on the Western Slope of Colorado, in a small town at the base of the Grand Mesa. It’s beautiful with lots of orchards and farms. A different sight from where I grew up, which was on the plains of Colorado.
I learned how to knit 8 years ago. I honestly don’t remember how it came about that I decided to learn to knit. I was trucking across country with my husband and while I loved the sights I was seeing, I was going a bit stir crazy! Maybe it was the episode of Gilmore Girls with the Knitathon that I had watched a thousand times! I just remember proclaiming I was going to learn to knit! I am so glad I did!
I am now a stay at home mom to two energetic toddlers. Once again, I found myself feeling restless and uninspired by my knitting. I was ready to pack away the needles. My husband encouraged me to do the reverse to sell my knitwear. That’s how Little Bitty Delights came to be. In the process I started connecting with many new and wonderful makers. I finally had my chance to try my hand at test knitting, and love it. Taking photos of all my projects in their many stages keeps my creative juices flowing. Making photography quickly a new passion of mine. While talking to a new maker friend one day( Annie, Thank you!) it became apparent to both of us that I should start a blog! I wanted a place to talk about all those test knits I love doing, the indie dyed yarns I am dying to try, and send out some happy joyful mojo to all my lovely makers out there for those times when the creative juices are just not flowing. I want to be your cheerleader when you don’t think you can keep on making!
That’s it for now! Hope you enjoy your time here!
