Along the way I've learn to knit, crochet, and machine knit. My sister and I are avid yarnbombers and do installations in our free time. You can see our street art over on my website, knitsforlife.com.

The group of buyers and sellers on Etsy are endlessly passionate about creativity, process, and business. Check out some of the fun we're having in my treasuries and groups. No other place on the web has as much capacity to help me take on this challenge.

Enjoy the handmade life on Etsy!
