Knits by Sarah Bradt

My name is Sarah and I fell in love with knitting in 2009, while spending time with my grandmother on the east coast. It was September, and I had just started a co-op term in Halifax as part of my studies in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo. Though I didn’t know anyone in the city, my grandparents lived only a few hours away and during those autumn months, I often drove down to see them. After only two or three visits, my grandmother had already taught me the basics--how to cast on, how to knit and pearl, how to cast off.

I've always been the kind of person who has trouble sitting still. I need to move, do something productive. I soon realized that knitting was a perfect compromise. I could sit, relax, clear my mind and create something beautiful all at the same time. Today, knitting is one of my favourite hobbies, along with hiking in the woods, reading, and really anything outdoorsy.

Ninebark Knits is a lifestyle for me. A platform to practice my passion and create environmentally-friendly, handmade products for people who love the outdoors. I hope you enjoy my knits as much as I love knitting them!
