I am a former pastry chef turned stay at home mama.  In 2011 I took the leap into small business ownership and opened Stash, a local yarn shop  in Oregon.

Creativity is my life.  It is expressed in many forms, and I’m not too picky which form it takes: cooking, gardening, knitting, writing, painting my nails.  As long as I make something every single day I’m happy!

I view knitting as a meditation, an act of great patience and joy. I knit to relax, to quiet the chatter in my mind, and to refocus my energy on something positive, enjoyable, challenging, and beautiful.  Join me as I collect some gorgeous yarn, try to learn a few new tricks, and have a lot of knitting fun along the way!

My wife and I live in Western Oregon with our two small children.becerra_photography-48 We are learning the ropes of this new life together, and enjoy the ups and downs of the everyday.  When I’m not plotting world domination with yarn, I’m usually knitting, reading, cooking, watching movies, playing in the garden, wrangling cats, or daydreaming.

  1. I can’t believe you knit a sock while I was having my toenail excised! I suppose the pain distracted me from noticing. 🙂

  2. Hi there Peaceful Knitter,

    Congratulations, you have inspired me to learn something new. I love this blog!

  3. Hello PK,

    Happened upon your site and would love to join the crowd of knitters. Approaching retirement in June and looking forward to many days and nights of knitting. Am quite concerned about the Ossipee mountain area knitters I have not yet met and hope there is a group of enthusiasts.

    Please add me to your list!
