Everything you see is hand knitted by me from beginning to end. I can thank my grandmother for teaching me the wonderful craft of knitting. I feel a little guilty sometimes, as I get so much enjoyment out of knitting.

I am a big fan of custom orders as I think every home should have something that's specially created. Get in touch if there is something you see that is more at home in your home, or a particular yarn you prefer.
