About

Handmade Knit Scarves and Accessories made in Canada

Etsy is a wonderful place to be!!

Knitting has always been a passionate hobby of mine since I was a young girl watching and learning the craft from both my late grandmothers and mother. I dabbled with yarn as a young girl and teenager. I made more complicated pieces in my 20s and 30s and would bug my mother all the time to help me with stitches and read any knitting books and magazines I could get my hands on. These were pre-internet times! Could have saved myself some tears and stress if there were such a thing as the internet! Then I became seriously sick in my early 40s and needed a distraction from doctors, labs, scans, hospitals, surgeries and my knitting went everywhere with me. My daughters and son would happily wear all the knitted accessories I created and tell me exactly what they wanted. If I couldn't find a pattern, I'd make one up. Their knits were well received and the friends all wanted to know where they got the cool headband or texting mittens. My eldest daughter and main model said "just sell them mom". So, I opened an etsy shop, created an instagram and facebook page. My knits have made it across Canada and to many parts of the United States.
So here I am happy and healthy and live on the outskirts of a city in Canada on a river with lots of trees and nature surrounding me. Hearing the clicks of my bamboo knitting needles, singing birds and the continuous river flow is when I'm most comforted and at peace.


Thank-you for stopping by my shop! I hope you find something you love!
