About

When time is right

It was a freezing winter, snow-storms all over Europe.
February the 2nd, 2010, my Italian husband and me finally arrived to our new (old) house outside Rome. We came the long way from Oslo (Norway) in my old Renault, filled with can't-live-without-stuff.
Passing the Italian border in the Alps, the sun was shining, sky was blue, and it was warm!
What a feeling!

Moving to Italy I knew I had to invent a job for myself.
I had A- B- and C-plans for my different skills.
Within a year I landed on publishing my crochet patterns.
Patterns are perfect items to sell; No packing, no shipping, no queuing in overcrowded Post-Offices.

I opened my Etsy-Shop in end of January 2011. Throughout summer and fall that year I listed my first 4-5 patterns.
Sales were close to zero as expected, but I felt strongly that this was right, and worked on as obsessed, with patience and long term plans!

I started to design garments for toddlers and kids, and had to buy myself a little girl!
Not a toddler in sight in my neighborhood!
Sophie came to me in a large box, and has been my indispensable dress form, photo model and mannequin ever since, and are doing just fine! Still 3 years old!
Her name is a re-writing of the brand stamped on the box, and went into my shop-name too, as Sophie and Me!

Summer 2012 a new obsession came over me. Crocheted shoes!
I avoided this product for a long time, but with the everlasting summer we have here in Italy, I wanted to be able to wear my crochet slippers on the street, as Espadrilles, the lovely canvas shoes.

After months exposing my brain to extreme exertions, I finally came up with a cord-sole, doable for anyone, and for any foot-size and shape.
I couldn't believe that no one had thought of making soles using this method before, but it looks like I’m the only one!

Now I design slippers to go with (or without) the soles.
Great fun, and a great deal of attention around these customized, any-size soles.
And to my shop in general, after this stunt. THANK YOU! I’m so grateful!

Crochet appeals to my creativity. It's easy to shape, and it's much faster to work then knitting. And it's a relief not having to pick up hundreds of stitches when unraveling; I do that a lot!
Crochet is not messy, or take a lot of space. I can work whenever, and wherever I like, even on the beach!
I'm more passionate about how I can use yarn in my designs, than the yarn itself.
I never buy expensive yarn-brands.
See pic of my local yarn-lady's booth on our weekly market. I purchase all my yarn here!

My studio?
Summer season; In the garden, under the Bougainvillea, in a not too comfortable chair, but oh so lovely to work outside!
In the winter (They don't know what real winter is here!);
In front of the fireplace.
Of course, I spend a lot of hours in front of the pc too, inevitably, writing my patterns.

All my awake time, goes into my work. I take it very serious.
I spend a lot of time preparing each pattern.
My patterns are normally 8-15 pages, filled with written instructions, stitch diagrams, step by step pics, and tutorials.
I take the listing-pics myself. If I'm the model, my husband shoot them.
Sometimes I have hundreds of photos taken in the end of a project.
Pictures are so important!

Is it worth the effort? Definitely!
After one year or so, I started to see the result of my hard work.
People like what I design; they tell me that my patterns are special and unique, so I think so too!
Thank you girls (some guys too!), you give me reason to continue to create!

If you still are with me, after this surely too long story, you shall know that when I receive a Payment Notification from PayPal to my inbox, I always note your name, and say; "Thank you!", before I store the mail!

Happy crocheting!
Best wishes, Ingunn
