Welcome to Samsqueak

Hi There! I'm so glad you've stopped by my little corner of the blogosphere. I'm new here. So here's a little introduction for you:

My name is Sam. I am small, and fairly high pitched. So that pretty much explains the name Samsqueak and the mouse logo.

I am a self taught "yarnist". That is to say, I don't consider myself an artist by any means. But I make things with yarn. Sometimes I sew. And occasionally I'll pick up a totally random craft - like block printing. But mostly, I just stick with yarn.

Commutes are just better when there's yarn involved.
I taught myself to knit my freshman year of college to avoid studying for finals. (That's totally normal, right? Doesn't everyone do that?) Everyone I knew got a garter stitch scarf for Christmas that year. The next fall I spent a semester studying abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France. (AKA The most beautiful place on earth.) My host mom thought it was entirely inappropriate that I knew how to knit but not how to crochet. So she took it upon herself to teach me. And I've been hooked ever since. (see what I did there...)

I'm not exactly sure where this blog is going - but you can expect to find some original Samsqueak patterns - like owls, giraffes and robots. And you'll probably see some awesome patterns that other amazing designers have come up with and I couldn't resist picking up. And you might occasionally catch a glimpse of my kid. Because I think he's super cute. And it's my blog, so I can do what I want.

See. I'm putting pictures of my adorable kid on here already. I mean, really, those eyes.
So that's that.

I hang out on Instagram if you want to follow me @samsqueak.

And if you like my stuff and don't want to make it for yourself, you can buy it in the Samsqueak etsy shop.
