I’m here to help you pick up the needles and create beautiful knitwear that you love.
Hi, I’m Sabrina – an architect by day and a knitaholic by night.
This corner of the internet is dedicated to helping you grow your knitting skills and find inspiration. I give you a detailed behind-the-scenes look at my own experience of being a creative knitter with tips, resources and tutorials to help you stand out with your knitting and love what you do.
In 2008 I picked up the knitting needles and taught myself to knit, using the amazing resources and videos available on the internet. From that day on, I’ve fallen completely in love with knitting and haven’t slowed down since.
Knitting has a ton of benefits.
• Knitting reduces stress and anxiety. Just what the doctor ordered.
• Knitting improves dexterity because your hands and your head are busy at the same time.
• You’ll unleash your creativity and you’ll soon be glowing with pride once you’ve finished.
• Your memory will improve. (Some even say it can reduce chances of dementia.)
• You’ll be able to meet new people. Knitters are everywhere!
Create something unique!
With the growing experience as a knitter, I’ve started to modify patterns. 2013 I decided to take my passion to the next level and began designing my own knitwear garments and accessories. My design style is primarily focused on texture, colour, and geometric patterns. I find inspiration in nature or architecture. My patterns are mostly named after a place that I know by kite surfing or paragliding.

Knitting should be fun.
Knitting with company is more fun. At my regular Knit’n’Sip nights we meet for a drink. We talk about current knitting projects, share our experiences and have a good laugh about daily businesses.
After numerous knit evenings and knitting emergency calls by my friends, I decided to move on. When I in 2015 for the first time officially taught a course, I realized quickly that I would like to do more. It gives me pleasure to share the knowledge in my classes. In the dictionary you find common knitting words translated into german. And I listed the needle sizes and yarn weights.
Sometimes an evening or a knitting emergency call isn’t enough. That’s why I organise since 2013 the yearly retreat called Stitching Retreat. At a weekend we can help each other, browse the marketplace and have a good time together.

PS: Why this name? Because “donnarossa” the red-haired woman is called in Italian and I… — oh well, you get that!
