About the Pirate

The Knitting Pirate has been obsessed with yarn and string for as long as she can remember, beginning with friendship bracelets and weaving on a plastic loom. She learned to knit at eight, but didn’t really pick it up as a hobby until her late 20s. Other string-related hobbies include inkle and card weaving, embroidery, sewing, quilting and, yes, the occasional friendship bracelet. The Pirate has just started to get into the idea of dyeing and spinning, or maybe spinning and dyeing, her own yarn – she got her a wheel for her 30th birthday, and a drum carder soon followed, and then another wheel…

Pirate used to live in a log house on top of a mountain and has moved back to civilization: a townhouse in the suburbs, where she has much more free time to do things like knit and make other art.
