Hello! I’m Mimi, and I started this blog as a personal journal of sorts to document my day to day life. I am a follower of Jesus Christ, and my highest priority in life is to follow the path He has set out for me. Along the way, I try to knit, crochet and sew as much as I can! I am also a stay at home wife and mother. I have three sassy little girls (aren’t they all!), and this is where the name Sweet Sassafras comes from.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by here.

  1. Hello Mimi, I just came across your blog and wow what beautiful knitwear! I’m just learning to knit and wonder whether you can recommend a really easy pattern for a cardigan or sweater for my two year old daughter? I’m from the UK but living in Southern Italy in a cold old apartment and want to knit something for her birthday in February. Thanks so much. Every blessing and all the best with the baby. Jo


    • Hello! Thank you so much for the kind wishes. I would start with a pattern like the Flax Pullover by Tin Can Knits. They have other great beginner patterns here, too. There are tutorials that accompany the patterns, so they are such a great help if you are new to knitting or to garment construction. I hope this helps. Good luck!
