Alison Markstone's Profile
I am a lover of yarn and crochet.
My great-grandma taught me the basics of crochet when I was a young teen. She is my biggest inspiration, and was crocheting, and donating, an afghan a week even at the age of 98!
I like to make items for everyday use. I am not much of a girly-girl, and make things for others like me. My items are designed to be thrown on with a jeans and t-shirt, and look fabulous.
I prefer working with acrylic yarn, because I find that it is the easiest to maintain long-term. I want my customers to fully enjoy their items, and with acrylic yarn, they never have to worry about losing shape. The items I make are also machine washable and dryable - the only way I know how to clean clothes!
I have recently learned to knit, so you will see more…
