Joane Duran's Profile
I'm a 40 something woman who's been knitting and crafting on and off for most of my life. I really got back into knitting the last 5 years, actually making a few garments and handbags for myself. I'm married and I have a 23 year old son and two step sons 17 and 12. I think being around all that testosterone got me back into knitting and crafting! I'm inspired by colors and, when I knit I like to let the yarn do the work. Meaning, I like to knit simple things with simple stitches with beautiful yarns. I've recently discovered my love of fabric again and, not being a great sewer I tried my hand at making the jewelry you see in my store.
A lot of people have been asking about the name of my store, "Ivory Pumpkin". Well, it's very difficult to find a unique and interesting store name on Etsy. I wanted something like "Lavender Moon" or "Periwinkle Moon" but, just about anything…
