I’m a lefty (just livin’ in a right handed world;) and when I was little my gramma tried to teach me to knit but I just couldn’t translate learning left from a right hander I guess. Fast forward a bunch of years, I was looking for a way to naturally soothe symptoms of late diagnosis ADHD (particularly in our long Canadian winters) and I imagined that knitting might help. I went ahead and taught myself to knit right handed and haven’t stopped since. Knitting has been a game changer- tactile, calming and meditative it’s like a grounding tool for me.
Now you’ll find me casting on year round- at home, at the lake, in the car, outside, inside..wherever I’m inspired. Southpaw Woolery & Supply was born out of a need to find stillness in a fast world and it’s my mission to share this art with you in the way of sustainably made hand knit pieces for you to adventure in or with my favorite high quality tools and fibres to create your own with.
