Critical Sheep is about one nerd making her own mark on the knitting world.

When creator Amanda decided it would be a good idea to start hand-dyeing yarn in her Waukesha apartment kitchen and selling patterns on Ravelry, it seemed like it would be a bit of a disaster. Happily, things came together well enough and here we are! With a little bit of business advice and a lot of experience in marketing and advertising, Critical Sheep was born.

About Amanda:

I’m a nerd, knitter and lover of everything that has to do with sheep. If I could live in the country with a big farmhouse with a herd of sheep and spend my days knitting, spinning, cooking and making a warm and loving home, I would be so happy with my life. I live in Waukesha and love filling my time with yarnie goodness. I am married to an equally nerdy man and we spend our Saturday nights playing all manner of games.

I’m looking forward to the loveliness that is my future endeavors. I’m working on so many things but first and foremost: Research and Development.

In the meantime, please keep an eye out on the blog for more information and on Ravelry for patterns available for purchase.  If you’d like to start receiving emails with updates, specials and discounts please go here to fill out the form and you’ll start receiving emails soon!  Drop me a line with your projects and plans, or requests for which colors you want to see in my next shop update with my contact form.

Happy Knitting, everyone. I’m so excited to see where this adventure takes me!
