A Knitchat With Tara Stiles


What do you love about knitting? Oh My God, everything! It’s so fun, meditative, relaxing, rewarding, and I what I love most are the awesome wool and cottons from WATG. Their colour, feel and style make it an experience - it’s not just knitting, it’s WATG.

What are you knitting at the moment? I just finished a little person hat for a pregnant friend of mine and I’m knitting a lot of bali bands to give away to friends. Bali bands are the new friendship bracelets.

How many hats have you knitted?  Good question. I should start keeping track. I have a goal to knit and give away a hat a week for the rest of my life. It doesn’t happen every week but sometimes I knit more than one a week. Probably about 100 by now.

When are you at your happiest? When I’m with friends, cooking, hanging out, at Strala, travelling around to teach yoga or give talks, meeting people and when I’m knitting of course! That pretty much sums up my life so I’m a happy gal!

What’s been the best advice you’ve been given and from whom?

“When you have an idea, do it.” -  Deepak

What’s your motto?  “You are a space maker.” - I Love the idea that we have unlimited space for possibility and creativity. We just have to tap in and create!

If you had to sum yourself up in 3 words what would they be? Lucky Farm Girl

If you had a magic super power what would it be? Teleportation

What’s one beauty product you couldn’t live without? Duchess Marden Rose Moisturizer.

Who or what has been your biggest source of inspiration? There’s so much inspiration around. You guys at WATG, the designers at Reebok, Deepak, Jane Fonda, Tao Porchon-Lynch, all the awesome people at Strala that I get to connect with and the stories of transformation I see online too. Oh, and nature. Nature’s pretty darn inspiring. It’s exciting to know that we are nature.

What are reading at the moment? The Conscious Universe by Dean Radin. . I need something good and fluffy after this one.

Favourite restaurant in NYC? There are so many great restaurants here, I’m currently eating at Ellary’s Greens on Carmine St. several times a week.

What has you in stitches :)?  Instagram yoga pose-offs
