I love my ear warmer! I wore it the other night and it was very cold outside and it kept my ears same! The seller was very easy to work with and communicated fast. I'll be back to buy more!

Knitting and Crocheting helps make my world go 'round.

The first real conversation I ever had with the man I would eventually marry was about his knit hat. We were in college, and he had returned from winter break wearing a green and brown ribbed knit hat with a puff ball on the top of it. He wore it everywhere. (As evidence of this, we were at a party indoors with a room full of people, and he was wearing the hat with a tee shirt.) I had to yell over the music to ask about his hat and where he had gotten it, and he told me it was a Christmas gift from his grandmother, who had knit it herself. She knits all sorts of things for everyone in the family, he explained, and he loved wearing it because it reminded him of home. I had just taken up knitting, and my mother had taught me how to crochet when I was 9 or 10, so we proceeded to talk about crafty women in our lives, our hometowns, our families, etc.

I had a boyfriend at the time, and we wouldn't start dating until two years after that point, but I still look back and remember that conversation. That was the first time I realized how much we had in common.

Once we started dating, I made him another hat, which he still wears everywhere. Lots of his friends started asking where he got his hat, and so I started making hats for them, too. Before long, I was making hats and scarves for friends and family members and decided to open a shop where I could sell my creations to anyone out there who may want them.

I opened my shop in 2009 and am so proud to say that I've created items for weddings, birth announcements, gifts for holidays, and welcome presents for new babies, not to mention the daily ensembles of my customers.

My goal is to make something you'll wear while making your own memories. I love colors, and while the items I list are my most popular patterns and styles, I am always excited for a new challenge.

My name is Angela, and I am a native Philadelphian who absolutely loves to knit and crochet! Everything you see in my shop was hand made by me.

I believe that when you find something you love it becomes a part of who you are when you wear it. I've had pieces in my wardrobe that I wore endlessly, seen shirts that reminded me of my friends, and it's made me understand what it can be like to wear something you truly love- it's almost like it loves you right back.

Please complete your transaction through Pay Pal within three days of ordering. If you cannot complete your transaction within three days, please contact me. If payment is not received and I have not heard from you, your order will be canceled and your item relisted. Please message me if you have any problems and I am willing to work with you as best I can!

If you wish to cancel your order once it is placed, please message me as soon as possible. If your order has already shipped, it is no longer possible to cancel your order.
Orders shipping within the United States will ship via USPS Flat Rate boxes. I do ship internationally, but rarely use the flat rate boxes because of the fact that they cost so much more than it would be for me to box it myself.

If you feel that you need insurance, or would like me to use a specific shipping method other than USPS, or a different shipping speed, please ask me! I am more than willing to meet your needs, but please be aware that changing shipping methods may change your shipping cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to feel confident in your purchase and happy with the item you receive. If you are not satisfied with your order, please message me within 30 days of delivery and I will do what I can to make it right. I do my very best to describe all items as accurately as I can, but please note that colors may vary by computer monitor. If you have any questions about color or measurements of a product, please ask before making your purchase and I will be happy to clarify so you know what to expect upon delivery.

If you'd like to return the item within that 30 day time period, I am happy to accept all returns of unworn items that still have the tag attached. If you wish to return an item, you will be responsible for return shipping. Upon receipt of your return, you would be refunded for the cost of the item, less original shipping charges. If there was an error in my listing, please let me know when you contact me to make the return request and I'll do my best to make it right.

If an item is lost or damaged in transit, I would consider this to be an extenuating circumstance. Please message me in that case and I will do everything I can to rectify the situation.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders---<3

To request a custom order, please send me a message, or click the "Ask a Question" button on an item you like if you'd want to request a similar product in a different color or size - either contact method is fine.

After we settle the details, I will create a reserved listing for your order. I require a 10% deposit on all custom orders. This saves me from planning, designing, and creating a piece, only to end up with no reply after the piece has been finished!

Custom orders can be cancelled within 48 hours for a full refund. Cancelations beyond 48 hours can still be accomodated, but your deposit will be forfeited.

If your order has already shipped, it is no longer possible to cancel your order.
