I love beautiful fibers! Their quality, depth of color, texture, size, and uniqueness inspire my creations. They are what keep me coming back to create more!

I make custom-designed hand knits in a variety of products using hand-selected fibers specific to each project. The quality of the fiber and its’ appropriateness to each project is my first consideration. But it is the color that generally attracts me. I look for depth, clarity and variety of colors in the yarn lines that I choose. Texture in the fibers I select is critical to each project and to me personally – I get to touch it over and over as I make each item. The size of fiber used is critical because it creates the basic character of each piece I design and make. It is the basis on which I build the actual piece. All of my creations are unique and I love using unique and varied accent fibers to trim out my pieces and set them apart…

All of my creations are unique and I love using unique and varied accent fibers to trim out my pieces and set them apart from others on the market. Each creation has its’ own personality that comes alive as I knit and this brings me great pleasure!

Some of the items that I have created and knit are:

KNIT ITEMS:
Hats: For Babies & Adults
Scarves
Sweaters: For Babies, Adults & Pets
Pillows
Throws

FELTED ITEMS:
Eyeglass Cases
Clutch Bags
Pot Holders
Hot Pads
Dog Collars

My mother was a seamstress beyond belief – she hand-sewed her wedding trousseau! She was also and interior decorator. So, I’ve grown up sewing, needle pointing, cross-stitching, knitting and decorating!

I began knitting when I was in high school and set it aside along the way. A few years back a new yarn shop opened in Excelsior, MN and the unbelievably beautiful yarns they carried drew me in. I started back knitting scarves and have just kept going! Along the way it got to the point where I really didn’t need anything more for myself but I love to knit so I started making other items to sell and give as gifts. My creations have flourished and their demand continues to grow for which I am so very thankful!
