As you may have guessed from the title page of this blog, my name is Amanda and I like to knit. (I also like bananas but that part of the name was added just for the fun rhyme!) I have been knitting for a while and finally decided to start creating my own patterns. Hence, Amanda Banana Knits.

I have three goals for this blog:

  1. Publish at least 4-6 knitting patterns for 2017
  2. Publish at least one non-pattern related post per month
  3. Share ideas and information to a broader audience

I am hoping that the above goals will help me improve my own knitting skills and challenge myself to become more creative. I always think how awesome it would be to design patterns but until I fully start, I never know what I will be able to accomplish.

In addition, I decided to add some ceramics to this blog as well. I like to spend part of my evenings painting ceramic faces for my garden (which my husband hates!) as well as other knickknacks. It keeps me away from the tv and improves my productivity levels!

Please join me on my knitting and painting adventure.
