Hi, I’m Cheryl!

Welcome to The Sleepy Stitch – I’m so excited to share my love of knitting with you!

I’ve been knitting since I was six, and I now have almost 30 years of experience behind me – from tech editing other people’s patterns, to test knitting for designers, and having my own patterns published in books and magazines.

And I want to share this knowledge with you! I’m here to provide helpful tips and tricks so you can get your project off on the right foot.

Because I remember what it was like in the beginning…

Welcome to The Sleepy Stitch - simple modern knitting

Knitting can be intimidating.

All those new knitting terms are confusing, and the variety of different materials is amazing! But it’s also overwhelming.

That’s why I’ve put together guides that break down the jargon, and help you select materials according to your budget and skill level. Plus, I have step-by-step tutorials that’ll guide you through every stage of your project from start to finish.

I’ll show you how knitting can be an affordable, relaxing hobby that you can start with just a few essential tools.

At The Sleepy Stitch, I want to make knitting accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

I want to help you make your next knitting project a success. So grab your yarn and needles, and let’s get started!
