About ByCarolaDownUnder

Sales 189
On Etsy since 2019

My name is Erika.

I am a Madrilenian with Peruvian and German background; I had a normal routinary life till the day when out of the blue two things changed and that’s when I started seeing things under a different light, that’s what gave the name to this modest space of mine, ‘by Carola downunder’.

Firstly, my passion: taking care of animals, especially cats and dogs is my profession. It is what I have been doing since the day I adopted my boxer dog, Carola. Today Carola is not with us anymore and my beloved cat Angelo has taken her place in our home.

Secondly, handmade crafts. About eight years ago the circumstances brought me to live to the other side of the world and there is where my second passion started. A set of knitting needles was my weapon of choice, never before had I thought to create something with my own hands. My first ever project was a pair of socks followed by baby blankets, scarfs, sweaters, sleeper boots and so on. The sense of satisfaction together with the relaxation that a finished project provides, drove me to explore beyond knitting and crochet and now I spin and dye my own wool, always looking for inspiration from the environment.

This is now my space. I still have my day job but I dedicate all my spare time to my craft passion hoping that someone out there is able to appreciate the love and passion I put into my work.
