About

Dreams Can Come True

I came to knitting fairly late in life, teaching myself how to knit. I grew up in a hot country and never needed to wear knitted clothes, but coming to live in England changed all of that.
I remember walking into a wool shop in London and seeing the shelves of different types of wool. It got me thinking that I could knit something for myself. I selected a pattern and with the help of the shop assistant, purchased the wool and needles. I didn’t tell the assistant that I had never knitted in my life before.
Entrelac pattern for a first time knitter wasn’t a good choice, but I love a challenge. This took me months to complete. 30+ years on, I still have it as a reminder of when I first picked up a pair of knitting needles.
I got really hooked on knitting. I find it very therapeutic and love all the challenges. In my very muddled and hectic world, knitting can be peaceful and enjoyable.
With every knit I make, I try to do it better than the last. I feel I am always learning, and now with the internet, it is so much easier to learn new things. I like to look at other people’s techniques and if I like what I see I would adopt it in my own work. Watching something that I am working on taking shape is the best feeling for me. When I am not knitting I would like to browse the internet for good quality yarns. I like the feel and knitting with high quality wools.
I find Etsy very challenging. It has opened up new challenges for me and given me an opportunity to share my work with others, make new friends and sell my knits to those that appreciate good quality handmade clothing for their very much loved children.
I work alone from home as I am very particular about quality, high standard knitting and presentation. I like to think that I offer this for customers looking for something unique.

Hi and welcome to my shop.

Please do browse. All the items you see have been hand knitted by me with great care, attention to detail and quality, in a smoke free environment. I use good quality yarns such as Cashmere, Merino, Silk, Alpaca, and Wool. These yarns come in the most delightful colours. If you would prefer to have something knitted in a different colour to that seen in the shop, please contact me for a colour chart.
Every listing you see is hand knitted with needles and not on a machine. To finish a knit takes many hours and I would ask you to please keep this in mind when browsing through the shop.
Thank you for stopping by.

Payment
All payments must be by PayPal or through Etsy Direct Checkout with Credit Card.
Any custom orders will need to be paid for in full in advance of making the item.
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Shipping
I use Royal Mail Price Finder to calculate shipping costs.
UK POSTAGE:
The shipping costs quoted in the shop are for Second Class Signed For with Royal Mail. If you require your items by First Class or Express mail, please contact me for a quote. I always obtain proof of posting in the event the package does not reach you.
DELIVERY TIMES FOR UK CUSTOMERS : 2-3 working days
INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE:
Except for small items like booties and hair bands, I use Standard Airmail, all other knits will be shipped using the Royal Mail Tracking service. Confirmation of postage and tracking number will be sent to you via email.
DELIVERY TIMES FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS : 5 - 10 working days - Note: This is an estimate, it doesn't necessarily mean that your package will be delivered within this time frame. It depends on the postal service from where the order originated.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply.
I am not responsible for delays due to customs.
COMBINING POSTAGE: In the event of purchasing more than one item in a single transaction, I will combine packaging and postage costs. As knits are bulky, I advise you convo me for a quote before purchasing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Items will be in an organza bag hand stitched by me, dispatched in a plastic bag within 1-2 days of receipt of payment.

Customers have the choice of choosing their own colours. I do not stock yarn, therefore, delivery will take longer. Turn around can take approximately 4-6 weeks. Customer will be kept informed.

As yarn companies change their colours on a regular basis, I cannot guarantee to provide the same colour yarn as you would see in the shop photo should you require the same colour in a different size, but shall endeavour to get a colour as close as possible.
Privacy
This General Data Protection Regulation Privacy Policy (GDPR) explains how data is collected, shared and used when you purchase an item from us, contact us, or otherwise use our services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services in accordance with the new EU data laws.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you make a purchase from CJs Handknits on Etsy, you supply our shop, via Etsy, with the information necessary to complete an order. This information remains on Etsy as a record of your purchase, your online receipt, and any communications (convos) between yourself and us, which stays on Etsy.

We do not ever see your credit card or PayPal data. This is held by Etsy who handles all financial transactions.

Therefore, the data that we are privy to, via Etsy, are

*the name you use on your Etsy account
*your email address
*the name and address to whom we ship your purchase
*what you purchased
*If you have purchased from us in the past
*items and shops you have indicated that you like by clicking on a heart
*Any feedback you leave about a purchase
*Communications you have with us, and information therein

HOW WE USE IT

We use the information with which you supply us to complete your order, and to comply with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

We use~~

*the name you use on your Etsy account
and *your email address
-- so that we can contact you with any questions, and you can share any pertinent information with us that you did not include when you placed your order

*the name and address to whom we ship your purchase
--so we know where to ship it

*what you purchased
--so that we know what to ship

*If you have purchased from us in the past
*items you have indicated that you like by clicking on a heart

*Any feedback you leave about your purchase
--So that we would know if we need to improve our service

How LONG WE KEEP IT

After shipping, we do not retain any of your records, but we can still see the records you have shared with Etsy.

If you would like for us to delete Etsy conversations, and any information that you have shared with us in them, we would gladly do so. This will delete them from being visible to us. We do not know if they are still visible to Etsy, since such records could be used to clarify a dispute that might arise, making it potentially beneficial for Etsy to retain them all.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

Etsy and we share your information while we are preparing an order for you, and after the order has been shipped, Etsy alone retains those records, although we can see your information as it pertains to a sale from our shop, and we can see the information you shared with us, if in fact, you did share any with us.

We do not share your information with anyone other than Etsy and the company through whom we ship (which is nearly exclusively Royal Mail).

Should a government request, a legal obligation, a legal claim (like a tax law), or a court obligation require us to disclose any of your private information, we would do so only with the utmost caution.
