What can I say?
My mother taught me 3 different stitches for crochet and I starting creating these fun items. First item I ever crocheted was a sweater and hat for my sister in law who was trying to conceive for 11 years and when the miracle happened I wanted to make something personal and that was not mass produced for this little miracle. I had no pattern and I can not read patterns, I am a visual thinker so I teach myself to make things by looking at pictures. Some how I managed to make this set and my sister in law loved it.

One year later I was expecting a miracle of my own so I purchased baby colored yarn and made my first blanket. When my second child came along I got so much better at crocheting that I make her outfits, sweaters, hats, all kinds of things. When I took my child out with one of…

One year later I was expecting a miracle of my own so I purchased baby colored yarn and made my first blanket. When my second child came along I got so much better at crocheting that I make her outfits, sweaters, hats, all kinds of things. When I took my child out with one of my creations I was stopped and asked where did I get the outfit my child was wearing. I would tell whoever asked that I made the outfit and I was asked numerous times if I had a business card. I told them no and at that time I was not interested in creating anything other than for my children because with two little ones, you really do not have time to do much. As we all know, little ones are very demanding.

Well, here I am with big kids who are too big for my little creations so this is why I decided to open this shop up on Etsy. I wanted to continue making these items and challenging my self with original designs and creations and to be inspired by other crafters and Artists on this site.

I hop you like what I create. Please keep visiting.

In advance I want to thank you for taking a look at my Shop/Gallery.

Sincerely,

Ely Pares
