Welcome to my 10,000 Hours store on Etsy!

It is a part of my ongoing fine-art project 10,000 Hours (10kHrs) in which I'm exploring the theory that it takes 10,000 hours of directed practice to become a master at something. I have chosen knitting. I began in February of 2011. All of the knitted items in this shop are a part of the project. Each item comes with a signed 10kHrs tag that lists the hours. (For example a scarf that I started 210 hours in and took me 14 hours to knit might say: Hours 210-224.)

I accept PayPal payment in US Dollars.

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. On the right hand side of the next page you will see 2 options, the 2nd one is to pay using a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

Payment must be made in full and have cleared before the item is shipped.
If your order is a gift going directly to the recipient, I can include a personal message card from you for no extra charge. If you would like this service please let me know what you would like me to write (to fit on a standard postcard) in the "message to seller" during checkout.

Knitting pattern PDF's are available for download through Etsy after payment has been received.

I ship first class USPS unless otherwise noted in the item description.
Contact me if you wish to upgrade to Priority or Express shipping methods.
No problem!
Items are only shipped once payment has been received.

Smaller items (such as mittens, hats, or scarves) are shipped in a sturdy padded envelope. The Items are slipped inside a protective poly sleeve and sealed with a 10kHrs emblem sticker. Larger items (such as blankets, sweaters, or toys) are shipped in a box. The item is wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a 10kHrs emblem sticker. The item is then secured within packaging materials reused from my studio so there will be a minimum of shifting during transit.
Every item comes with a signed 10kHrs tag listing the hours.

All items are shipped within 3 working days of your payment clearing.
Refunds and Exchanges
I’m sorry, due to copyright issues, I cannot accept refunds or exchanges on any knitting patterns, please purchase seriously. All sales are final. Thank you for your understanding. If you have purchased a knitted item and are unhappy for any reason, please contact me within 5 days of receiving your order. I will do my best to resolve the problem quickly.
