I want to make you look as adorable as you are, and let you feel the hug in every hand knit accessory!

Some of the hats, beanies, cloches, are warm for winter, some are light for summer, all of them look great on, whether you think you are a hat person or not!

Knitter, designer, believer in the myth of the spider. I love taking the long strand and folding and knotting it up into wearable treasures. I love fashion, and I love making you look pretty as much as I like making you cozy.

No matter what I'm doing, I'm knitting!

Why "Not An Apple"? More than one meaning applies. One of my fondest memories is taking my daughter and her best friend to see the Magritte exhibit. We stood in front of his painting, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" for…

Why "Not An Apple"? More than one meaning applies. One of my fondest memories is taking my daughter and her best friend to see the Magritte exhibit. We stood in front of his painting, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" for a long time discussing its meaning. When we came home the girls got out their brushes and paints - and made pictures of things that were not. My favorite was of an apple. My daughter explained to me that it was a picture of an apple, "Not An Apple", without knowing that Magritte himself had painted, "Ceci n'est pas une pomme".

Why "Not An Apple"? In my family tree are many medical and scientific people, but I am not one; not an apple from that tree. I have warred with the apple side of my nature, and keep landing back on the artistic side of the fence.

Why "Not An Apple"? Apples are lovely and everywhere found. I hope to fill this shop, not only with the fruits of my hand-work, but also with exceptional art, ephemera, vintage items, and supplies.

Comfort yourself with my "warmies", and my good wishes.
