Very cute and well made! Shipping was quick as well. My new cozy makes every morning just a little happier and my coffee a bit warmer :)

About

Black Cat Knitting Company

Hi there,
I am Alanna, the artist and designer behind Black Cat Knitting Company.
Being raised in rural North America without TV or computers, handmade goods were an integral (and often necessary) part of my childhood, and as long as I can remember I have been involved in some craft or another. My favorite materials to work with are those provided by nature, and I love wool most of all. Both roving and yarn, the soft feel, the brilliant colors . . . What's a nice word for obsessed?

I am not only an avid knitter and crocheter, but I am also a "connoisseur of the feline arts", which the unenlightened may call a "crazy cat lady." But in addition to my love of cats, I have a human husband as well, which I think helps my case.

I started my shop mainly out of necessity since the piles of handmade things were beginning to overflow the confines of our living space.. Thus began Black Cat Knitting Company, originally under the name WoodsGirlCreations. I began selling online, in stores, and at the occasional market, and after 5+ years I must say that it's pretty amazing to be able to do something you genuinely enjoy and be able to (at least partially) provide yourself with a living, or at the very least the materials for your next project.

A Bit About My Process:
All of my knits and crocheted items are entirely handmade by me (with help from my husband on big orders) and the patterns/designs are my creation as well. I use pure cotton and sheep's wool yarns, with the occasional blend for softness. The patches are hand-sewn on to the cozies and accessories and are made by me using cotton fabric, adhesive material and interfacing. My gnomes are needle-felted using pure sheep's wool roving.
