When I was a child my mother taught me to knit and crochet, and I have enjoyed making treasured gifts for family and friends ever since. In college I met my husband who has always appreciated my work. He has a delightful sense of humor and is a wood artist in his own right. Together we live in a small town in Kansas, where the sky goes on forever and wheat fields are more plentiful than homes.

Once our children came along we got pet Angora rabbits, which were loved and affectionately cared for. Their wool (the warmest wool available) is hand brushed and mixed with dyed Moreno sheep wool (which is almost as soft as the rabbit’s wool). I spin the wool into fine yarn on an old Irish hearth wheel replica. This relaxing activity is usually done in the evenings, and my daughters used to love falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of my spinning wheel. I then ply the wool yarn, wash it, and transform it into beautiful handmade garments. This process makes each item truly a one of a kind, waiting for you to take home.

My children are out of the home now and have started homes of their own. With my new found free time I have taken the opportunity to design and sell many of these items for you.

I must charge your town, county and Kansas Sales Tax. I will send a revised invoice to include the sales tax which you can then add to the charge. PDF Patterns do not include Sales Tax since they are a virtual item.
