Stitches and Stakes is about two of the great loves of my life, knitting and everything about vampires that I can get my hands on.
I have been knitting since I was 6 years old and have had a love affair with the creatures of the night for about the same amount of time. My doctor might call it insomnia, but I prefer to call it a fascination with the night. I know what you are thinking... these things have nothing to do with each other, but I find that they interact in my life on a daily basis. I have made designs inspired by characters in vampire literature and I have been know to hide the latest vampire novel under my knitting while working at the store, as well as been caught knitting at all hours of the night.
Though I spent my teen years hiding these from my friends and family to protect my reputation, I am happy to say that the times have changed and it is no longer strange or odd to be interested in either. These days you tell someone you knit or you like vampires and they get a shocked look on their face which is followed by their excitement that the found someone like them.
So I have decided to blog about that which I am passionate about, in hopes of connecting with others like me, as well as discovering the passions of others.
