About

[About Me]
I'm a recent graduate with a Master's in business administration and Bachelor's degree in psychology. I must say I have never been an art student, but I have always been a bit more creative than my business peers.

Back in my sophmore year of high school (2000) I purchased a "Knit Your Own Scarf" kit and haven't stopped since. Although things sometimes prevent me from finding outlets for my creativity, I try and use any available free time. I even founded a registered student organization for knitting on my undergraduate campus to help teach others!

Currently I most frequently knit, however, I have dabbled in embroidery, cross-stitch, felting, spinning and dyeing yarn, and creating yarn from used or vintage materials.

For the curious, my Etsy name is simply derived from my initials, which are E.C. I substituted the letter "C" for the word "sea". Thus my Etsy name is pronounced E.C. i.e., "esea".


[My Products]
All handmade items are handknit. Older projects may use any of a variety of commercial yarns, but now I frequently work with recycled or upcycled materials.

Oftentimes I hand choose sweaters with mostly natural fibers (e.g., wool, cotton, etc.) and "unwind" them into yarn which is hand washed and reknit into the products I list. Any hand-dyed yarn is done so using natural materials (e.g., tea leaves, onion skins, etc.). Some of my products are knit with alternative materials that might otherwise be sent to the landfill, such as plastic grocery bags, cassette tape or cotton cords.

I may also periodically list vintage items.

I'm a proud member of the EtsyKnitters Team!
