Hi! I'm Dominique, a crafter, student, and blogger. Designing and creating knit and crochet items (and occasionally other types of crafts) has been my passion ever since my grandmother sat me on her lap at the age of five and taught me to finger knit useless, ever-growing tubes of yarn. I've honed my skills significantly since then, but my attitude towards crafting remains the same: there is nothing quite like spending time and energy creating a one of a kind item for someone that you love!
Inspiration for my designs comes from a lot of different sources, but I am especially influenced by nature. I love playing with new textures and colors, and mixing them in new, interesting ways! I am fascinated by handspun yarns (I've dabbled in dying and spinning myself) and so I love showcasing particularly beautiful yarns with simple designs that let the quality of the fiber shine through.

When I'm not studying (I am a sophomore studying Psychology and Women's Studies at the University of Pittsburgh) or crafting I enjoy blogging, reading, biking, eating and laughing with my friends and family!
