About

Hey friends, thanks for checking out my shop! My name is Kara, and I started knitting in 2004 in La Crosse, WI, while getting my degree in Musical Theatre. I couldn't decipher patterns for the LONGEST time, so I made bazillions of scarves! I loved my new hobby, so I started experimenting with different original patterns and stitches. It wasn't until 2009 that I finally conquered my fear (or laziness) and found a pattern to make a simple hat for a Christmas gift for my dad! Eventually, my closet was full of handmade scarves, hats, and mittens, so I decided to open my Etsy shop in order to keep knitting and keep my closet from entering hoarder status. :)

My love for knitting and handmade goodness has only continued to blossom with each new piece I finish. I have always been attracted to bright, bold colors, and love to use only the softest yarn available! (Wool makes me feel itchy.)…

I decided to draw upon my German heritage when thinking up a name for this store, and KALT seemed perfect. Simply stated, it means COLD!

Enjoy the shop, and stay warm!
