  • Life as a work in progress…..
      These two images are my favorites, they remind me that life is filled mostly with little things that make our day-to-day lives worth living. We may not see them or appreciate them at the moment, but when we look back at them, they give us a warm feeling of accomplishment, happiness and joy.  Sometimes our lives get tangled up and we have to go…

  • Behind the scenes…
      Here is a sneak preview of two patterns that will be published in June. Today was the day to take photos of the finished samples and our dog was very involved as always.  There have been many different blog posts about how much time it takes to create a knitting pattern. How much money a knitting pattern should cost, in order to be profitable.…
  • Spring….
      Since my last blog post I have been busy. I am still in the midst of deadline knitting for various third parties and although some patterns were already published, some are still waiting for publishing, and several are still work in progress. I know everything will eventually get done and finished, but there are moments when I feel rather overwhelmed. It is not just…
  • Grande Gatto and Cleo.

About Me

Stana D. Sortor

Stana D. Sortor’s grandmother taught her how to knit and crochet when she was a little girl. Ever since she took her projects everywhere. Of course she has experienced some sidesteps on her knitting path, like trying to be an artist, photographer or writer, but she always returned to her favorite activity.

Some of my patterns are for sale and plenty are free. The patterns for sale are helping me to support my creativity and share it with you.

You can also purchase the patterns in my Etsy store, on Payhip, on LoveCrafts, on KnitPicks, on Ravelry, or you can buy me a coffee to show your appreciation of my free patterns.

I also have a newsletter I started this year where subscribers get exclusive offers available only to them. Use the contact form below to subscribe.

Thank you for stopping by.

I hope you will have fun when knitting some of my creations!
