Sarah Schira from Imagined Landscapes Designs - I design knitting patterns for everyday adventures

I’m Sarah, a homeschooler and a runner who’s deeply infatuated with knitting. I’ve been designing sweaters and accessories for my family and friends almost since I started knitting more than 10 years ago, but I’ve only recently started to publish patterns. It’s very exciting to see my ideas transformed by other knitter’s yarn and colour choices!

I love to read myself into new worlds and I love to travel, and that’s part of where the name Imagined Landscapes came from. There’s more to the name, though, and you can read about it here: Why ‘Imagined Landscapes’?

I live in the Canadian Prairies, but have always been more of an urban prairie girl. We moved around the centre of Canada a fair bit when I was young and I don’t have a hometown, just a home landscape. I married a German, and love the options for travel that he has brought to my life. When I’m there I miss the big skies, and when I’m here I miss the cobblestones and downtown shops.

Our kids have been homeschooled since the beginning. Their huge passion is playing soccer and both share an interest in science. Having soccer kids means coaching, at least for us, and so you’ll often find us on the touch line during the spring, summer, and fall.

You can find me on Ravelry as PrairiePoppins.  If I look familiar, it may be from my other blog, HandmadeHomeschool.
