My name is Glenna, and I live near Toronto, Ontario. Having learned to knit as a child, I would say that I became a true “Knitter” more than seven years ago while studying for my PhD, as a form of stress relief and distraction. I finished the PhD and kept on knitting anyway. I have since added knitting design and teaching to my repertoire, have been producing knitting patterns for self-publication and for independent yarn dyers for several years, have a yarn stash with a life of its own, and I am never without a project no matter where I am. I believe in challenging yourself and knitting without fear. My patterns have been featured in Canadian Living Magazine, Twist Collective, Knitty, Skein Theory, and self-published through Ravelry and Patternfish. I am currently a guest contributor to the blog at Craftsy.
This blog is an opportunity for me to document my knitting progress and get chatty with other knitterly friends and neighbours, and to write and photograph what I’m interested in. I enjoy yoga, cooking, reading, am fannish about film and television, and I lean to the left. Welcome to my blog.
My blog is my own and I choose my content based on my personal interest and the current goings-on in my life. Please note that direct requests to post certain content, advertising, or promotion of other websites may not receive a response. I do occasionally review knitting books or related products of interest in the industry and do often respond to these kinds of requests. I thank you for your understanding.
Please note that I do not accept guest posts to Knitting to Stay Sane at this time.
I do respond to help requests for knitting patterns when they are for patterns of my own design. I am not able to respond to requests for general knitting help. If you need help with a knitting project or general advice for your own guidance please consider using an online search using your preferred search engine and keywords, your local knitting guilds, knitting shops, classes & workshops, or friendly knitting circles in your own area.
