About

I learned to knit when I 17 years old. I wanted to make a pair of argyle socks for my boyfriend (now husband of 61 years) . I fell in love with knitting and have knitted ever since. I have made everything from slippers to coats.. My current love is knitting purses made of fur yarn and fabric..

I use all new yarns and fabrics for my purses. They are always "one of a kind". The purses will relax when used - and will become even more beautiful with use. See picture above.. The purse on the left has been used for 8 years; the one on the right is brand new and made of the same measurements as the one on the left.
