About me

KnitLove was created out of a love and passion for knitting… and crochet… and the desire to learn spinning and weaving. Perhaps, it’s best to say a love for all things yarn, but the knitting came first. It’s all about the knitting, with smidges of the rest.

I wanted a home of my own, on this great big internet, where I could share my creative exploits. A place to share with you, and to have you share with others too. Be it patterns, mine and yours, new techniques, giving you the inside scoop with product reviews, or knitting articles on the blog, I hope you make yourself at home here too.

I’m Erron, a mother juggling my family of 6, volunteer work, a small family farm, friends and relatives, all while maintaining my sanity and giving my creative self an outlet by knitting.

I live in the heart of knitting territory, the Canadian Pairie. While gorgeous, and the only place I want to call home, the temperatures here can dip a little below freezing (okay… some days a lot below freezing, but 1 or 2 days at -40 builds sturdy people). The summers are warm and the sun shines in skies as vast as you’ve ever seen, they are also rather short. Sweater weather is about 10 months a year, and even some summer nights call for being wrapped in some type of knitwear. The perfect climate for this knitter.

I believe knitting is for everyone, and everyone can learn how. There is nothing as rewarding as creating something beautiful in your spare time. I have knit miles of yarn, learned and taught others numerous techniques, succeeded and failed, and learned to be very good at what I knit. I look forward to sharing my best with you.

Happy Knitting!

Erron

FAQ’s

Why would I pay for a pattern when there are so many free ones on the internet?

There are several reasons. Patterns require many hours of work to write, so that they are available in several sizes. My patterns are tech-edited and test-knit by others to check for errors and to ensure that each size comes out in the right proportions, thus minimizing the need for several erratas. Paying for a pattern helps me provide you with a high quality pattern that has been worked by others to be problem fee, so that you are not the knitting guinea pig. I do offer some patterns for free, they are also tech-edited and test-knit. If you use a free pattern please consider clicking on an ad that interests you to help generate revenue for KnitLove.

Why do all your patterns cost the same amount?

When considering what to charge for my patterns I thought on it for a long time. I wanted the patterns to be inexpensive enough, so it wouldn’t significantly increase the cost of your project, and still be profitable enough to pay for professional tech-editing. And while a baby pattern is shorter than that for an adult sweater, I believe 3 dollars is a great value for either. It makes deciding on a pattern less complicated, since you know they are all going to cost the same.

If I buy a pattern can I share it, or sell the item I knit from it?

No. The pattern is for your sole use. You may knit the item as many times as you’d like, of course, for yourself, for a gift, or for charity.

How do I contribute an article or pattern of my own?

By sending it to contributions@knitlove.com. You can view guidelines here: Want To be a KnitLove Contributor?

What kind of articles may I submit?

Articles about knitting, such as a guest blog post, product review, pattern, or tutorial.

Do all submisions get published? If not, how do you chose which ones do?

No, submissions are reviewed. You have a very good chance of being published if your article has a clear topic, is easy to read and follow, targets knitters, is proofread and reasonably error free, the subject matter hasn’t already been published on KnitLove, it is not a conflict of interest, and it is written in the format outlined in the submission requirements. All submissions will be read and considered, so give it a shot, I look forward to reading it.
