when two creative souls met
and started a business...

Welcome to SistersInStitch

...or simply put; the story behind SistersInStitch

how it all came to be

Me and Kay found each other on Instagram in early 2017; both being new to the crocheting community and quickly became friends.

On the 18th of February 2017 we met in real life for the first time at a yarn shop happening, and since then not a single day has gone by without us texting or talking on the phone. Not to mention that three phone calls in we decided to start a company together, and most people would probably say that was crazy seeing as we didn’t really know each other but we both knew that this was something magical.

So what happened in between us meeting and everything taking off? Well, family, babies, loads of crocheting and wild plans of where we wanted our company go. 

2 years in; unfortunately the curveballs of life came in the way for Kay so now I’m continuing carrying the torch with the ambition of making SistersInStitch all that we know it can be, and hopefully even more.. 

I know where we have been, I know where we are going and I hope that you will want to join me along the road and have lots and lots of fun together..

..cause We Are All: SistersInStitch.

  • “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” - Wassily Kandinsky
.
And how I enjoy playing with this power...
.
Combining colors surely is a wonderful act of balance. You want your highlights and lowlights, your contrasts and your little unexpected all to work together and sing.. 🎶🎵🎶
.
Nothing to loud and nothing to quite, just perfectly balanced in harmony; many working as one. 🌿
.
How I do it? I go by the old routine of feel and test. I feel; try; feel; frog; feel and then try again. And again and again and again until I’m happy.
.
Luckily it is much easier to back up and change color whilst crocheting than it is whilst painting. ☺️
.
Oh and frogging is my best friend for sure! Just ask these four makes and they’ll tell you their stories...

  • Keep on learning .

I wasn't really sure what to do today.
For some reason I didn't feel like crocheting. But laying in my hammock trying to relax, I started thinking what I could make.
And then I thought of all the lovely yarn in my shed. The one that kept coming back was this lovely Ultrasoft from the Concept range by @katiayarns 
As it's name suggests, it's a really soft 100% cotton yarn. It's eco friendly and vegan. .

I was kindly given this yarn from the new spring/summer collection and wanted to save it for a special project. 
So laying in my hammock, I decided today was the day to make something with this lovely soft yarn.
.

Having no inspiration, I took my stitch bible and looked for a stitch I never made before. 
I always had an idea of what I wanted to make with this yarn and now I think I have found the perfect stitch for it.
I'm not gonna tell what it will be just yet. First I have to see if it will work, but it's looking good so far...
.

And it turned out to be the perfect project for my mood today. I really needed something relaxing and cozy and maybe somewhat nostalgic and romantic! .

Have a lovely day!
