This is the first blog I've ever written. It has taken me a while to enter into the blogging world but I wanted to create a space where I could journal my thoughts about my knitting. I began knitting seven months ago as a way to grieve the loss of my brother Alan. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I made scarves, hats, and blankets for family and friends. I soon realized that in order to continue purchasing yarn, I'd have to sell some items that I make. I've opened my own shop on Etsy - and I'm having a blast. My prices include the cost of the yarn and a nominal labor charge. For me, it's not about the selling of the items. Instead, it's about creating something that will allow the receiver to have an opportunity to enter in a personal space to meet with the Sacred. That's how I came up with the name SacredPathways. We each have a pathway waiting for us, it is our choice to enter the path.

Today I'm beginning a multicolored silk purse. The colors of the yarn are red, green, blue -- with red as the predominant color. I purchased the yarn from Manasi has the most beautiful yarns, mainly because she draws from her native India as she creates the most vibrant colors I've ever seen. I'll post a picture of the yarn tomorrow as I begin to knit the purse.

Two of my dear friends, Mary ( and Renee (still working on her shop's name) are or have opened their own shops as well. I can't wait to hear about the blessings they receive by sharing their creative creations with others.

I look forward to connecting with others, those who are knitting, grieving or just celebrating life.

Thank you. If I can finish the paper I'm working on then I can get started on the purse. That's the problem with having class deadlines and creative bursts colliding. Hope you are well.
