March 2019 - SAFIYYAHA TALLEY

March 01, 2019

Safiyyah Talley is a knitwear designer, teacher, blogger, and podcaster working out of her country style ranch in an unofficial town in central Indiana.

Prior to working in knitwear, she taught pre-school and before that, she was a fashion journalist in New York City.

After the loss of her child, she made the dramatic change to quit her job and pursue her dream of creating for a living, advocating for grieving parents along the way. The Joy Shawl, her first published pattern supports families who are navigating baby and pregnancy loss.

When she is not knitting, Safiyyah splits her free time between yoga, quality time with her husband, two cats, puppy, and angora rabbit.

You can see these three patterns in person at the shop all month (from left to right) The Dipper Cowlette, The Joy Shawl, and the Moby Tee.
