What is this blog all about?

There will be talk of my love for California,  knitting projects (and there are many), cooking, gardening, BBQ sauce, Disney, my love of home design, toys, and many other things. Mostly though I am here to talk about knitting, the knitting industry, and my dreams of working in the fiber industry.  I currently moonlight at my local yarn store and run their social media marketing – and I love every minute of it!

Recently I was lucky enough to assist with the knitting portions of Disney’s 50th Animated feature Tangled. You can read about it here or in the summer 2011 issue of Vogue Knitting.  It was an amazing experience and I am very grateful to have made such an impact on the movie.

Who is writing all this?

Hi there! I’m Barbra.

Aka: Barbs, B, Barbra Anne, Barbar, BaPu, and many other versions of my name EXCEPT Babs and Barbie (Yeck!)!  I am a 30 something girl living in Southern California working in Animation Production. I have realized over the years that my true passion in life is knitting.  Knitting brings me peace, happiness, a creative outlet, and is my zen. Knitting is a gift from my late Grandma Ellen, she loved knitting and made many beautiful things for me growing up. Sadly I didn’t take up knitting till many years after her passing.  I would give anything in the world to have her here to knit with, but I know she is watching over me making sure I don’t drop any stitches.

If you have any questions please feel free to drop me a line at anytime!

Happy knitting to all!
