Tea and a chat
Life is about to get very interesting for this Sheepish Girl. We caught up with the super- blogger before the release of her first book
With Meredith Crawford, AKA super- blogger One Sheepish Girl
Starting a blog doesn’t seem like the obvious way to combat shyness, but that’s the route that knitter, crocheter and embroiderer, Meredith Crawford took, encouraged by her friends, as a college student in 2010. “At the time, I was feeling a bit lost, voiceless, and looking for a place to share my new love for yarn,” she says. “Even though I was nervous about putting myself out there, I decided to give it a try and call my blog ‘ One Sheepish Girl’ because… that’s me. I am the quiet girl. At least, I was the quiet girl,” she explains.
With the support of a combined community of around 71k likeminded online pals making a beeline for her blog and social media streams ( controversial statement: her monthly Blush List is better than Pinterest), Meredith gained confidence. “It’s been so amazing to find my voice and, in turn, encourage others. I want that to be part of my mission!”
Meredith’s new book – Crochet with One Sheepish Girl – is out in October, so we caught up with her during the calm before the welcome whirlwind of workshops and promotion.
