I'm pretty sure the tea cozies you can get at this shop are a necessary part of the tea enjoying experience!

Caitlin from InkBlotOutfitters responded quickly to my questions about whether the cozy would fit my specific teapot, and shipped it promptly when I ordered. The yarn used for the cozy is thick, soft and feels very nice. It's super cute!

Choosing the simple joy of creating.

What began as a gift for an owl-loving friend soon became a way of life. Knitting during conversations and television episodes, in movie theaters and even bars, I made (and make) critters almost every moment I wasn't at work – which is a good thing, because I might have gone insane if I didn't find something creative to do.

I am fortunate to have gotten the opportunity this year to dedicate more time to knitting and writing. I've already begun to branch out more, into rabbits and octopi. Who knows where we'll go from here?

  • Caitlin

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    Knitting critters began as a sort of accident that came to take a more meaningful shape - like an inkblot worked into a beautiful painting. I love seeing the joy my creations bring to people.

  • Ian

    Photography Assistant, Cheerleader, Enabler

    Ian holds the items while Caitlin photographs them. He says yes when she fondles the yarn at the store. He squees at each and every creation she comes up with. He took a needle through his toe for the cause. He might be the most patient husband ever.

  • Cranberry


    Cran might just be the evil mastermind of this all. She lives with Caitlin and Ian, loves to chew on pinecones (like a squirrel!), and is a connoisseur of backyard ukulele music.
