Greetings from Mariah

She is looking to the left wearing her glasses.    Mariah holding two hanks of yarn, one green and one pink.  She is wearing glasses with her brown hair down and a smile on her face.

Hi friends! My name is Mariah and you will be seeing blog posts from me here on Yarn Geek Boutique. I am very excited and honored that Holly has invited me to be a part of this wonderful community.

I've been knitting for about 15 years and I've always enjoyed helping others learn the craft. Because of the pandemic, I've had to stay home with my son, which hasn't been all bad since I've found more time to knit. No longer working as a physical therapist, I decided to try the Certified Instructor Program for knitting through the Craft Yarn Council. That's how Holly found me and has given me an opportunity to teach through the Yarn Geek University.

I've also been trying out the blog thing, so we decided to bring my work here and continue to build our community. You should be seeing regular posts on Wednesdays about my WIPs and hopefully some inspirational posts to keep us all motivated and mindful about our crafts. I invite everyone reading this to join our Facebook group and consider joining us on Saturdays for our weekly Stitch-Together.

I'd also love it if you would like to leave a comment below about your craft and what it means to you. My knitting keeps me grounded and calm and I am excited to be sharing my yarn related adventures with all of you.

You can also find me on Instagram as MariahKnits , Twitter as MariahKnits , and Ravelry as MarrKnits.

    I’m a new knitter (since just before the pandemic began) but I’m so grateful for it as a way to make pretty things for friends and family that I love, and it feels like indulgent “me” time, too.
