You can call me Syd.
I grew up sewing, cross-stitching, scrapbooking, and generally super crafty, but somehow never learned to knit. After getting back into my crafting senior year of college, I put knitting at the top of my post-grad bucket list. Shout-out to my mother and cousin for making this happen!
Fast-forward, knitting has become my go-to relaxation. There are tons of thinkpieces and research studies about how knitting is equivalent to meditation, yoga, etc. But mostly, I love knitting because I love to create. I can’t draw a straight line, but I can turn a ball of yarn into a pair of socks and honestly, is there anything cooler? If you haven’t guessed yet…I’m obsessed.
knitsxgrits was born from my weekend morning ritual: coffee, a big bowl of grits, and knitting. And listen, you may not understand knitting, but grits are universal. You can legit eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Sweet or savory. Hot or cool. See? so versatile.
