My daughter and I had this crazy idea to take our love of knitting and share it with all of you on Etsy!

Hi! My name is Mary. I have been knitting for many, many years. My mother, Joi, was an avid knitter and crafter and taught me many crafts. I love to knit the best! I enjoy making cotton dishcloths and because so many people love them, I wanted to make them available to you. I make so many of them that a lot of them don't appear in my shop. You are welcome to message me to let me know what colors you are interested in. I have about 100 of them made, so chances are I have your color/s!
I also enjoy making scarves. There are just so many yarns and designs available that I have fun trying new ones, but my favorite ones to make will always be the soft, chunky ones. It is hard to sell them in the shop sometimes though because you cannot feel how extremely soft they are. I love the palette of colors the Homespun yarns have for these particular scarves. Give one a try!
The baby booties I knit are the same ones I made for my kids when they were babies. Now I make them for my grandchildren! They will stay on those little feet even when they go a mile a minute!
I also enjoy making Christmas stockings. My mother made me a stocking when I was a baby and that inspired me to create ones similar to what she made. I will gladly put any name on one for you. What a great gift for a child!
My daughter, Sarah is busy with a three children these days but she knits whenever she can. She has also been busy knitting baby blankets for her friends.
Stay tuned to our shop. We try to add things as often as possible. You just never know what might pop up in our shop, JOIknit!
Please feel free to message us. Sarah and I do take custom orders. Most of the items listed can be knit up in a matter of hours or a few days! Let us know what you want and we'll see if we can accommodate you.

Welcome! We will do our best to help you find just what you are looking for. Mary has been doing the most knitting and knits just as fast as she can. We want you to be happy with your purchase so we hope you will convo as often as necessary to make sure we are knitting just what you want! We do take custom orders but you have to understand that sometimes they can take longer. We have to find or make a pattern and make sure we have the correct gauge, the right needles and the right yarn. Mary really enjoys taking an existing Christmas Stocking and making more just like it. If you have a Stocking that you would like her to duplicate, please be willing to mail it to her. It takes a lot of extra time to do this. She can't always match the color or the stocking perfectly but strives to match it as closely as possible!
