In early 2010, surrounded by yarn I didn’t knit with and needles I never used, I took a stand, declaring myself a minimalist knitter. I did not use or need much of what I had accumulated in the many years of my knitting hobby – in fact, I found the greatest joy from the simplest of tools, the most basic of yarn, and the same patterns used repeatedly to make items for charity and others.
In the months that followed, I pared down my yarn stash, got rid of all but the most essential of knitting needles, and even knocked out all of my WIPs! Through it all I’ve learned a lot, and am excited to share these lessons with you! I believe that any knitter can join my ranks: knit through their stashes, pare down their notions and supplies, and become minimalist knitters. While not an easy journey, the process is well worth the final product – and isn’t that what we all love most about knitting, after all?!
