Meet the Maker

Hi there!  I'm Sharayah, the hands holding the needles here at Joining Yarns.  

I learned to knit on youtube, and since then will knit just about every time I sit down.  For 7 years, I taught at a private school, and would knit hats for graduation presents. I love making hats and giving them as gifts, and Joining Yarns is an opportunity to do both!

I've been knitting for over a decade, and my knits have won awards.  1st and 3rd place at the Yamhill County Fair, and 1st and 2nd at the Oregon State Fair.

I can usually be found reading or listening to podcasts (while knitting, of course).  And when I'm not knitting, I'm probably gardening, roasting and drinking coffee, and playing with my dog, Paisley.
