About Me

Hey guys! Welcome to yarnella, a website that I will use to publish the knitting and crochet patterns that I design and talk about all things yarn in my world.

My name is Sam, and I’ve been working with yarn for about 3 years now. After I gave birth to my daughter, Ella, I decided I needed a hobby so I taught myself to crochet. I had made countless items and when I felt I was well versed in the crochet world, I moved on to teach myself to knit. I love all things yarn and although I prefer the look of knitted products, crochet will always be my go to and first love.

Recently I decided that I loved working with yarn so much that I wanted to create a blog/website dedicated to all things yarn in my life. At yarnella, I’ll be releasing my own patterns free to my readers and writing posts about my adventures as a knitting crocheter and mother. I have spent countless hours on the blogs of other crochet/knitting bloggers and they have helped me grow immensely in my yarning adventures and I hope to do the same for you all!

When I’m not knee deep in frogged yarn trying to create and recreate the picture I have in my mind, I love spending time with my family and friends and I love to cook!

This is Dave. I seriously couldn’t have picked a better partner. He is always so supportive of my new ideas and adventures. Bless his heart. I’m not always the easiest person to deal with but he somehow manages. And can we all just take a second to appreciate how absolutely adorable these two are together? She grabbed him out of the blue this day and said “mommy take a picture!”. She absolutely adores this man and he is hands down the best father I could have asked for for our daughter. He makes life easy and I never knew a love like this until I met him.

Oh Ella! This beautiful girl gives my life a purpose. Since the day she was born she has made me want to be a better person, in all aspects of my life. She has taught me the true meaning of unconditional love and the love I feel for her is unexplainable. She is my everything and the inspiration for this page so expect to see a lot of her beautiful face!

I hope you all enjoy!
