Trish's Profile

About

Hi! I'm Trish and I learned to knit and crochet from my mother when I was four years old and I continue to learn more about my craft every day. One of my friends nick-named me "Yarn Yoda" awhile ago as I could always seem to fix any problem, untangle any yarn and decipher any pattern! The name stuck.

I've been designing knitted and crocheted items since the 1970s. I teach knitting and crocheting, too, and have a great worldwide following, thanks to the internet.

I also create jeweled knitting stitch markers and scissors/key fobs. My customers loved my stitch markers so much they wanted to wear them as earrings. So, one thing led to another and now I also have another Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrishDesignsJewelry where I sell wire-wrapped semi-precious stone jewelry, bookmarks and more!…

Getting back to my knitting and crocheting - most of the yarns I use are natural fibers, although with the novelty yarns being so exotic, many times I use man-made fibers like nylon and polyester. I also love rayon, which actually begins its life as plant fiber, but my favorites are Silk, Mohair, Angora, Baby Alpaca, Cotton and Merino Wool and any blends using these fibers.

Many of my items are One-of-a-Kind, but I do repeat styles in different colors and different yarns, too.

I use only the finest yarns, regardless of what fibers they consist of and also regardless of price. I put the best quality workmanship into each piece and want it to look and feel it's best for as long as possible. I do all the knitting and crocheting myself.

My customers have always loved what I do and I hope you will, too.
