About MedleyofColors

Sales 663
On Etsy since 2015

I love to play with different yarns and textures to create my colorful slouchy hats, scarves, fingerless gloves and other accessories.

As a child, my grandmother taught me to knit as a way to occupy myself after school during the winters in southeastern Kentucky. Later, a fellow knitter and mentor sent me a box of her yarn scraps and I began my love of yarns and textures. Early on, I became a yarn hoarder. For me, knitting is similar to quilting - matching colors, tones and the added bonus of yarn means that one gets to play with textures. Thus, one knitted row might include 2 or 3 yarns combined to create its own distinct color blend and texture. Thus, a tapestry to colors.

I am a Special Education teacher by day and knitter by night. For years, I knitted gifts for family and friends and a few years back began to sell my scarves and create custom orders. With encouragement from my customers, I opened my Etsy store in the Winter of 2015. My design line has grown from my gypsy style scarfs - each containing ten or more yarns and ribbons to now include my slouchy beanie style hats, braided beanies and fingerless gloves.

If you find something you like but want different colors tones - give a holler. I love to experiment and custom orders feed my needs to shop and hoard yarn.
