About Sara Morris

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.

Little big update

It is not pattern news I bring today, but the happy (and overdue) update regarding my website. For a long (really, really long) list of reasons, I’m closing Rose City Knits down and moving everything over to my name. Aside from the need for name recognition in the design world, it’s also problematic from a contract perspective to host everything through a business without my name in it.

So, the transfer is still in progress; but, I feel confident enough in my new website http://www.sara-morris.com to share.

The new homepage.

The new homepage.

It’s (obviously) not complete, but is up and working and getting the hits – which totally counts as a success for me :)

I’d love for you to take a look around and give me feedback. Suggestions are always welcome!

As for the sweaters, I really need to tie myself down to a chair and sew on some (10) darned buttons. And weave in ends. Finishing will be the end of me.

Busy, busy, busy

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. Things have been in high gear here, and I’ve been working on a bunch of patterns amidst the chaos. None of them are ready to be published yet, but I do have a sneak peek of an upcoming release, Lettermore:

Lettermore

In other news, I’ve finished a bunch of sweaters (can’t wait to share pictures!) and have so many projects in progress, it’s kind of overwhelming. There’s also updates to be shared on #origamigraffiti and I owe you all some contests (and have the prizes ready). Give me a couple of days to get caught up, and we’ll have some fun!

Okay, I lied

I’m currently at the Yarn Harlot’s book signing.  So, instead of stuff*, I offer you an adorable YouTube video that I can’t stop watching:

I love Cole theBlackCat‘s videos, partially because Cole looks so much like my Mo’ and also because there are cute cats and I’m a knitter.  It’s a thing.

If you have time to kill and need a pick-me-up, definitely go and check out the other videos in the series.

Lastly, yay! for ravelry and their 4 MILLION users! Woot!!  Did you see the stats?  They’re geek-tastic.  We’ve made over 5 blue whales worth of projects – how sweet is that?

*Specific, I know.
