Hi! I’m Meg the creator behind The Northern Moose.
I taught my self how to knit and crochet in 2015 when I was pregnant with my son, Hudson. I saw so many cute knitted items on Pinterest for babies and I just needed to have them all. That’s when I decided maybe I should just teach myself how to make this stuff and then I really can have it all. So knitting and crocheting became a hobby of mine to help pass the time throughout my pregnancy.
After friends and family members started seeing what I was creating, they wanted little cozy knits of their own. So I began making them items like hats, dish clothes, ear warmers, and boot cuffs. That is when I realized maybe I should take this hobby and turn it into a little business. And that is what I did.
I started selling on Etsy in 2016 from there I started doing local craft shows. And I eventually became The Northern Moose. Because, well, I live in Canada.. so you know Northern… and I like Moose.. So The Northern Moose. Perfect right?!
Anyways.. fast forward to 2018. The Northern Moose blog was created. I wanted to create a space where I could share my patterns and tutorials for other knitters and beginner knitters around the world.
So, welcome to my little cozy space on the internet! Grab a ball of yarn and cup of coffee and stick around. Lets get cozy and knit together!
