About

Knitting Too Many Things for One Person to Use

The Anchovy Knits journey began in 2004 when my mother-in-law showed me the door that was knitting. The first few years went alright with a few small designs from my own head, plenty of fuzzy bling yarn, plenty of loathing of fuzzy bling yarn, and many, many scarves made with fat needles.

And then a fateful Wednesday evening, a few months after my little man was born, I came across a group of women hanging out at Borders. They were all knitting. Ignoring my social anxiety, I approached them and that led to the community that is knitting and the online mecca Ravelry.

A couple years after that and everyone, simply everyone, was learning how to spin and buying spinning wheels. I gave into peer pressure and bought my first wheel, a Kromski Sonata, and named her Yolanda. After a Camp Pluckyfluff class, as I delved into art yarn, Yolanda could no long meet my needs, plus she killed my back. In 2013 Echo, a Lendrum (with bulky fly wheel and bobbin) joined the troupe.

Christmas 2013 brought an Ashford 16" rigid heddle loom.

And there was a period when I taught myself basic crochet because of amigurumi critters. And also how to get by with a drop spindle.

My training is complete. Now I am the master.

So after all that, I have learned that I prefer smaller projects or scarves and handspun, imperfect yarn. I like my knitting to have personality and originality. I do what I want! Playing with textures, fibers, colors, sparkly bits, blobby bits, and never ever Fun Fur. Never again.

    I am focusing more on sharing my creative adventures and seeing where that takes me. Anchovy Knits is where it all began because I did a lot of knitting for several years. Color and texture work on fat needles, that's my preferred style.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 15, 2015
Some things to keep in mind when shopping the Anchovy Knits:

Everything, unless specified otherwise, is: HAND WASH ONLY. LAY FLAT TO DRY. Please follow these instructions if the item description doesn't mention cleaning.

People with sensitive skin and/or allergies, please pay close attention to the fiber content of your item of interest. Fiber content varies from item to item: animal (e.g. wool, mohair, alpaca), plant/insect (e.g. cotton, silk), synthetic (e.g. acrylic, polyester), any combination of the three.

There will be the occasional knitted thing made from a mystery yarn--obtained at yarn swaps, unlabeled, whatever scenario. I make my best guess as to the fiber content, but please be aware my best guess might not be one hundred percent accurate.
