spin yarns. tell stories. create change.

Hey y'all! My name is Dallas Anne. I'm a knitter, magazine owner and makeup lover. My best friend taught me how to knit our freshman year of college, and I fell in love with the craft immediately! Knitting is my stress relief and a way I can financially support "agriCULTURE Magazine," a Georgia-based digital publication that showcases all the farms, gardens and food the Peach State has to offer.

Knitting is also a way to empower people to achieve their own successes. When someone learns how to knit, they're not only learning a fun skill, but they have the ability to turn a raw product into a finished good they can sell or give away. Knitting is a way to lift others up: by joining a guild or even an online resource, knitters can learn from each other and teach each other new skills, patterns, ways to embrace color and ways to flatter their body with apparel.

My knitting centers around things I can't live without — bright colors! I strive to be a light unto others and bring a little bit of sunshine and encouragement into their day, so I tend to knit with fun and funky hues and textures. My favorite things to knit are holiday decorations, sweaters and stuffed animals. I split my work about half-and-half in terms of custom knits and stuff I want to make just for the heck of it, so there are multiple listings in my shop for commissions!

It is my annual goal to donate a Knitter's Basket via Heifer International, an agricultural nonprofit, through a portion of proceeds raised from each sale made on this Etsy shop and craft shows. Your purchase from Knitalicious: Knit Knacks by Dallas not only supports me as a small business owner, but also women and men in third-world countries who will benefit from a Knitter's Basket each year!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Please see individual listings for sizing details. All custom orders are knit to size specifications provided by the buyer.

Care instructions

Each individual item will have care instructions, if applicable, included on its tag, but here are some basic guidelines.
* Stuffed animals and toys are NOT machine-washable. I recommend cleaning with a lightly damp cloth.
* Lace knits need to be laid flat and reshaped to dry. I recommend hand-washing as well, even if it is not a natural-fiber yarn, to avoid holes getting caught on something in the washer.
* Wreaths kept outdoors can be brushed off lightly before coming inside for the season.
* Dishcloths are 100 percent cotton and therefore 100 percent washer-and-dryer safe!
* Please note that though all of the yarns I use are colorfast and well-set, there is a possibility of colors fading with repeated regular washing.

Wholesale availability

Interested in carrying 3KD knits in your boutique? Please contact me for pricing and deadlines!

Yarn Allergies

If you are allergic to any specific fiber, such as wool:
* Please ask before purchasing a finished product to make sure it does not contain that fiber!
* Please let me know before I start working on a custom project for you! Unlike a lot of knitters, my yarn stash is relatively small :) I prefer to purchase yarn for a project in mind, and yarn cost does factor into the final price of custom orders. Before I buy lovely wool to make that custom stocking, I need to know if you're allergic to wool so that I can purchase another yarn instead!

Pricing on Custom Orders

Custom orders are priced based on several factors:
* Yarn and other materials cost
* Time spent to consult with you, knit the project and perfect it before sending it to you
* Delivery deadline — if you need a baby blanket in a month, it is going to be more expensive than if you needed it in three months, because every waking moment will be spent getting it completed in the time allotted!

Seasonal Knits

Though I'm knitting year-round, there are a few things that I stop taking custom orders on with guaranteed "before holiday" delivery dates! I also may at times limit the quantities of custom orders of a certain item that I take in. There are also a few weeks I will be unable to ship orders due to being out of town. All of this info will be updated as needed on the shop announcements!

Deadlines to keep in mind:
* By Hanukkah and Christmas Eve 2016: Please order by Nov. 15
* By Valentine's Day 2017: Please order by Jan. 1

No shipping these dates in 2017:
* March 17 through 19
* July 14 through 23
* July 27 through 31

Custom Project Completion

Generally when creating a custom knit, I request at least three weeks for a smaller-scale project (scarves, hats, toys, jewelry, dishcloths, decorations, etc.). Larger-scale projects may take four to six weeks, such as blankets, sweaters and shawls.

Custom and personalized orders

Please see each shop category for available custom designs and details! Do you need a knitted item and don't see it listed? Message me and I will be happy to create a pattern for you and make one! I do not charge extra for pattern creation and reserve the right to make additional items from that pattern to be listed on Etsy and sold at craft fairs. Photos of custom items will be used in my portfolios and for marketing purposes. If it's a gift, let me know the "gifting date" and no photos will be posted until afterwards so as not to ruin any surprises.
