About

Hello, my name is Deb and welcome to my shop!

My knitted teddy bears, knitted jewelry and accessories are all wrapped with love!

I love knitting! I guess you could say that is my passion along with my gardening. I realized that I could combine my loves and create something that was beautiful and affordable. I enjoy making things for people and seeing the excitement that comes from my creations. That is where the satisfaction comes, when you have made something for someone and see the happiness it brings. I like to think my creations do that!

All my designs are hand knitted from the necklaces to the teddy bears and scarves. They are all one of a kind. I use only the highest quality beads and materials in my necklaces and the best yarns in my bears and scarves. If you see a design…

Hello, my name is Deb and welcome to my shop!

I love knitting! I guess you could say that is my passion along with my gardening. I realized that I could combine my loves and create something that was beautiful and affordable. I enjoy making things for people and seeing the excitement that comes from my creations. That is where the satisfaction comes, when you have made something for someone and see the happiness it brings. I like to think my creations do that!

All my designs are hand knitted from the necklaces to the teddy bears and scarves. They are all one of a kind. I use only the highest quality beads and materials in my necklaces and the best yarns in my bears and scarves. If you see a design that has been sold, let me know and I will create a piece similar. No two designs ever turn out the same.

I have spent most of my life working in the needlework field. I worked for several years for Stoney Creek Collection helping to design and teach specialty stitching around the United States. After that I created DeVO Originals where I could then specialize in my own designs. I have had designs published in 1986 in a leaflet called Hearts and Flowers featuring Reed Baxter Wooden boxes by C & L Crafts & Co. I then created a birth announcement in 1998 when my granddaughter was born called God Smiled and published in the January/1999 Cross Stitch Magazine. This centered around various specialty stitches. Then in 2000, I designed a free hardanger pattern called Garden in Silk using silk threads for Kreinik Mfg. Corporation. From there grew the designing of my necklaces and now I am pleased to announce that in December 2014, I received the 2014 Best of Rockford Award in jewelry designing.

When I started making my scarves I realized that I needed a new name to combine all the aspects of my shop. So I created KNITTED Ltd. I retired in 2016 and I'm enjoying the chance to do the things I love and get more involved in my shop.

Please enjoy your visit to my shop! Come by often and stay as long as you like.
