CraftSanity Episode 108: Catching Up With Knitter Susan B. Anderson

by jennifer

Susan B. Anderson is back again to update us on the latest developments in her successful knitting career, namely her new book, “Itty-Bitty Toys.”

I asked Susan to give a brief overview of her knitting career on this episode, but if you want to hear the whole story, I invite you to go back and listen CraftSanity episodes 46 and 64.

Susan’s Itty-Bitty series including “Itty-Bitty Hats” and “Itty-Bitty Nursery,” have been very popular and the latest knitted toy book went into it’s second printing within weeks of the release date. The success this 45-year-old, married, mother of four from Madison, Wis. has lead opportunities to travel and teach in knit shops across the country.

It also helped her land a fun gig with a great title as the curator of the Spud and Chloe blog where Susan frequently posts free patterns for knitters to download and stitch.

Tune in to this episode for down-to-earth inspiration that just might inspire you to launch a handmade business of your own. And speaking of free patterns, check out the Susan’s Santa Baby pattern that I posted after our first chat. It’s perfect for last-minute holiday crafting.
