This is us!

Hi there, we’re Kate and Lace. Welcome to ktog, our spot to share our love of knitting!

K: I learned how to knit when I was 8 years old, but really started to challenge myself when Lacey learned in 2009.  She was just picking it up, and wasn’t afraid to try anything! Besides scarves, the first new project I tried was a baby sweater for a friend. From that project I have become obsessed with knitting, more than I ever had been before. 

L: Seeing some of the things Kate had knit was a big part of why I wanted to learn knitting in the first place. I practiced on my first scarf, but I much prefer sweaters or baby items. I normally have a very specific idea in my head, and I love the details that go into planning and executing a project.

I can tend to be a perfectionist, but Kate has helped me realize which details are important, and which mistakes (because, let’s face it, I will make them) I can live with. Since I started, I’ve barely gone a day without knitting!

K: Lacey and I have learned so much together, and we are always inspired by our friendship and mutual love of yarns and all things knit. 

We’ve spent so many hours together, knitting, drinking coffee, and talking through life and we’ve been encouraged by having a friend to share things with. We started to have a vision of creating a group, with the goal of teaching others to knit while enjoying the process together, as we have. In September of 2012, we started Knit Together in Love, and we have created a couple of obsessed knitters that we get together with weekly.

This verse

“…that their hearts may be encouraged and comforted, knit together in love, so that they may have all the riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, which is Christ.” ~Colossians 2:2

 is our inspiration as we continue to spread the knitting love, and encourage others through our projects and friendships.

We are excited to share our collaborations, inspirations, and aspirations with you and we hope you’ll enjoy and be encouraged in your own knitting adventures.
