If I were a bag I'd be a super cute one; round, plump, soft and adorable.
I create my bags and purses in my own image. I make them fun, full of color and laughter, and at the same time delicate and graceful.

I have been a passionate knitter since I made my first sweater. I was 13, hated knitting, but decided to make a sweater out of cheap acrylic blend yarn.

Needless to say it was absolutely hideous. But I felt so proud of my creation, knitting became to me like climbing a mountain and after conquering that first mound I wanted to take on a bigger challenge and aim for a higher one. With every knit work that has hence followed I have strived to improve myself, make something finer, climb the higher knoll.

My bags and other pieces available here are a step on my way to the highest peak. Maybe one day I will be close enough to say farewell to my day job as a sales assistant and fully commit my time to making more of these lovely creations. Until then I shall continue my hikes in the mountain ranges of yarn in my free time.
