About Knit Like Granny

Hi there, I’m Jodie Morgan.

Jodie Morgan

Thanks for being here. I started Knit Like Granny to show 1,000,000 people the joys of knitting & highlight alternatives to fast fashion. I’m Australian, traveling overseas with my family.

I love knitting and meeting fabulous knitters through this site. So I’m a member of the Craft Industry Alliance too! I love learning and helping others discover the joys of working with yarn.

Please say hello!

Having grandmothers, aunts, family, and friends who loved knitting made such an impression on me. Mum (“Granny” to my kids) is s the inspiration for this site.

I have hilarious memories of knitting a jumper with her. We worked on the sleeves, me the right sleeve, Mum the left.

When we finished, Mum’s sleeve was 1 1/2 times as long as mine! A lesson in knitting tension right there 🙂

I was keen to get back into knitting after a lapse of a few years. I’ve knitted baby blankets, cowls, and hats.

I love making dishcloths. I’ve learned new stitches, which I’ve enjoyed. They also made lovely gifts for wonderful people I’ve met on my travels. A little bit more about me…

I’m originally from Melbourne, Australia. I attended the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, where I met the love of my life.

Later I attended La Trobe University to gain a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education. Then, I taught Food Technology in a high school.

My love of growing organic vegetables and cooking led to the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.

Teaching primary school-aged children the benefits of growing vegetables and preparing delicious meals was extremely rewarding.

All through these years, my love of crafts remained. Knitting, quilting, and sewing my own clothes were how I spent my spare time.

One of my favorite things is learning about knitting and the people who enjoy it. Everything from where fiber comes from to the rich history of the craft intrigues me!

Here’s me feeding a baby llama at an Alpaca farm and fiber shop who make their own yarns in ACT, Australia. It was fascinating to talk to the owners, and the baby was adorable.

I love chatting with my readers! Get in touch here, or connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, Mastodon, Pinterest, or Twitter!

For the love of knitting 🙂

Cheers Jodie
