About

Took up knitting again after a 30 year hiatus and glad I did!

In my previous life, I was a Bank Vice President in Commercial Lending underwriting and financing multi-million dollar loans. In 2000, I had my thyroid removed and the surgeon ineptly paralyzed both of my vocal cords in the process. I went on my company disability after that. I can communicate (provided you're not hard of hearing LOL). I just sound like I have a really, really bad case of laryngitis. And it's uncomfortable to talk, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

My husband passed away in 2005, so I was looking for a vehicle to supplement my income. I discovered Etsy in 2008 and opened my shop in 2009. It was a perfect fit for me since I didn't have to vocalize. I started out selling knitted kitchen dishcloths and graduated to baby clothes. In 2012, a good customer of mine talked me into selling my patterns and the rest is history!

I try to come up with new designs throughout the year to keep my shop interesting. And it seems to have worked. I'm very close to breaking the 7,000 threshold for items sold. (4/4/16). YAYYYYYY!

Thank you for visiting my shop! I put alot of time, love, and effort in making my baby hats, booties, diaper covers, and mittens.. Alot of my hats are a combination of several different patterns and colors; so, in a sense, they truly are unique. And I'm now selling my patterns, too! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do creating them!
