Carmel Cucinotta's Profile

About

I have been knitting dance wear/fashion knits for over 30 years. Having been a professional ballet dancer, I understand the need a dancer has for keeping muscles warm and protected during long class days, long rehearsals and cold theaters. I use only the finest yarns in my designs. I take great pride in my work and promise long wear and quality garments. I have sold legwamers to persons who suffer with poor leg circulation, arthritis, and limited mobility.
Many times I become sad that I can no longer dance, for I too suffer with arthritis and bad knees. But then I think, "I CAN NO LONGER DANCE, BUT, MY LEG WARMERS CAN". I get great pleasure in imagining who may be wearing my leg warmers . Are they in dance class, cold theaters, long rehearsals..or making great fashion statements?
Thank you for looking and interest in my product. Please feel free to inquire about custom orders…
