Welcome to Autumnyarn!
I am a graduate student living in the Washington, DC area. Sewing and knitting provide a creative counter-balance to my more academic pursuits with the added benefit of wearable end products.
Autumnyarn began when I realized that writing wasn’t fun anymore. When you need to write for academic purposes, writing itself can take on the stresses and frustrations of academia. Looking for ways to push back against that single, stressful association of writing, I eventually found that blogging about my creative adventures eases the stress. Writing can and should be more than drudgery, and finding balance helps to keep it that way.
