    This shawl is more beautiful than I could have imagined. When I wear it, I feel like I'm wearing art. The colors are vibrant and the design is unique, which I love. Best of all, I can wear it to dress up or with jeans. So worth the price!

About

It began in late 2009, when I was spending a lot of time sitting in hospital rooms with a sick family member.

I never thought of myself as “creative” or “artistic” until I began to make scarves.

It began in late 2009, when I was spending a lot of time sitting in hospital rooms with a sick family member. At a friend’s suggestion, I took up knitting to help pass the time and to relax. Soon, I began to love both the process of knitting and the beautiful colors and textures of the yarns. I discovered the joy of creating beautiful things with my own hands. I made them for myself and as gifts for family and friends. Before long, people were asking where they could buy my scarves – and soon, my scarves were exhibited in several galleries in Petaluma and another in Southern California. I was featured at Artist Receptions, and it was all great fun! Recently, several friends suggested that I make my scarves more widely available by creating a shop on Etsy. So here I am.

While I knit scarves of all shapes and sizes, the ones you see available here are triangular in shape and knitted using a “self-fringing scarf” pattern. They can be worn either as scarves or shawls.

I love colors and textures. Today’s yarns offer an incredible variety of both. When I knit, I like to mix yarns the way a painter might mix pigments -- and I end up with a colorful and highly textural fabric that’s fun to wear. Some of these scarves are knitted entirely with ribbon yarns. Others are made of many different types of yarn. Still others are entirely wool and wool blends. They vary in width and weight.

Each of these scarves is unique – I never make two identical scarves (even upon request), because then I would miss out on the fun of the creative process. I do, however, make scarves “to order” – so if you have a color scheme or a particular combination of yarn textures you’d like, perhaps for a special occasion, let me know.
