ABOUT ABBIE

Hello! I’m Abbie, an avid knitter and weaver living in Seattle, Washington with my awesome husband and two very charming cats. I’ve been knitting for too many years to count, ever since I learned the old fashioned way – from my mother, who learned from her mother. I started weaving in 2014 and created this blog to share my progress, creative inspiration and love of fiber. Warp or Weft has grown into an actual shop in addition to a blog and I am really pleased with all of the fun people I’ve met along the way.

I currently weave on a 4-shaft 40 inch Macomber Add-a-Harness Loom and an 8 harness 25 inch Rasmussen Table Loom. I recently purchased a Navajo loom, so stay tuned for that. I knit in the European style on all sizes and shapes of needles, including the old, long metal needles because hand-me-downs are the best! 

My favorite knitting store is So Much Yarn in the Pike Place Market.

My photos are taken with a Nikon D5100 dSLR and a Canon Powershot.

Roses are my most favorite flower followed closely by dahlias and fuchsia. I have a fairly impressive (some may say, really over populated) balcony garden.

I’m obsessed with fat cats and small kittens and want to be a cat foster mom someday.

In our spare time, my husband and I enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest, cooking and watching comedy shows. Travel is important to us and we try to take a few vacations every year. I occasionally feature photos from our travels on the blog and you can find additional photos of our adventures on @lifewithalbertine. As you will see, I am particularly obsessed with National Parks and wildlife.

Thanks for reading!
