The Witch that Knits

" Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But sooner or later, the man who wins,

is the fellow who thinks he can. "

-Napoleon Hill 1973 -

Hi! My name is Rose Thompson.

Professionally, I am a Space Planner / Interior Designer for a furniture dealership.

I am also an all-around artist and craftswoman with endless hobbies, like painting, cross-stitching, knitting, and crocheting. I also love reading and writing novels. Might be surprising to some, but I am a fan of YA books. I try to cram all of those hobbies in one night. I say night, because I have a reverse sleep cycle. I am awake at night and asleep during the day. Always have been. Being awake at night where it's quiet and peaceful helps me to think and create.

I was 5 years old when my parents realized that I have ADHD. I was always watching my mom do her crochet and sewing. She used to make all my clothes and I've been on trend all the time with my wardrobe. It was then that they discovered that I am interested in yarns and stuff. So, she gave me a crochet hook and a ball of yarn and taught me how to do a chain. Since then, the only way that my parents were able to manage my ADHD, was to give me a crochet hook and yarn and I would sit in a corner and continuously make chains, unravel them and do it all over again. It helped me a lot. I was able to transfer my hyperactivity and focus my attention into a project.

I also had an aunt, my mom's eldest sister, who was a Home Economics teacher for 60 years at College of the Holy Spirit. She was the one who taught me to knit. She also taught me everything she knew and I became the heiress to all the tools of her craft.

Since then, I was never without a crochet hook or a knitting needle. I hope you enjoy crocheting and knitting as much as I do and enjoy my site!

Since all witches have familiars, these are mine:
