Cindy (Mom) = I make macrame jewelry using mostly cotton string. The string I get is from factories that didn't want that exact color, so I bought it instead of it being thrown away. I try to stay away from the typical hemp string as it is itchy against the skin. I am in charge of most of the business.

Jessie (Daughter) = I make crochet items like hats/beanies/skullcaps, bags, scarves, flower pins, toys and other random items. I try to stay away from animal fibers like wool since it is itchy to work with and to wear. I have sensitive skin, so when I work with anything that…

Jessie (Daughter) = I make crochet items like hats/beanies/skullcaps, bags, scarves, flower pins, toys and other random items. I try to stay away from animal fibers like wool since it is itchy to work with and to wear. I have sensitive skin, so when I work with anything that sheds fur on me, my whole body starts itching. I do have some alpaca yarn that we can make special orders with, I just prefer not to use it because it gets everywhere while I am crocheting.
I also help out with anything involving technology, like etsy.
**Update - I've figured out that I can work with animal fibers, as long as it is winter. The cold weather keeps me from itching when I get wool on me.

We price our item based on cost of materials, difficulty, and time it takes to make. We try to keep our items affordable. If we wouldn't pay that much for a particular item, we don't expect anyone else to either.

We feel that we should tell you that our items come from our home. We have a smoke free home (except for burning incense and soy candles, and we heat our home with wood heat)
We have dogs (rat terriers), in case you are allergic, they are usually kept outside.

I highly suggest you wash anything new to you (anything primarily consisting of textiles), weather you are buying it from a chain store, thrift store, or home business. You never know what sorts of chemicals are put on fabric in the manufacturing process and you don't want them on your skin. For example, the store-bought yarn we use to make hats could of had chemicals applied to them during manufacturing. We used to wash the crochet items, once we were finished with them, but we started worrying about people having allergies to the detergent. So now we leave it up to you to wash the crochet items and other things made of fabric.


We accept custom orders and maybe even trade. RiverKnottings [!at] gmail.com

We are always on the lookout for beads we can use. We need large hole beads since we have to thread on multiple strands of cotton string. We also need those beads to come in matching sets of even numbers.
