A blog mostly about knitting from an obsessed crafter…
My name is Sarah and I live and knit in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Why am I the “BacoKnitter”? Because I love bacon. I cook bacon and add it to my Lean Cuisine. For my 30th birthday I received a membership to the Bacon of the Month club and it was heaven.
My aunt Jeanette taught me to knit when I was a kid but I never progressed past knit and purl and had never used a pattern. Reading A Tale of Two Cities really made me want to knit – Madame DeFarge and her circle of ladies who watched the guillotine beheadings while knitting the names of the executed fascinated me. Yeah, I was a weird kid.
In the fall of 2009 I took a community education class to learn how to knit socks and became instantly obsessed with knitting. In the summer of 2009 I worked from my first pattern (a huge lace shawl – not the best choice, but I sure learned a lot). Now I’m trying to write my own patterns and have even started selling on Ravelry.
