About

Portraits In Yarn began as Animals In Yarn

I started crocheting several years ago when I moved into an RV in order to be able to get across the country to see the kids, and needed to find something to do that didn't take up much room or add a lot of weight to the rig. I am an animal-lover from 'way back and had dogs or cats for 31 yrs.; but I can't have pets now, so I decided to turn that interest into something useful and decorative.

I had no idea that I would love it so much or always be coming up with new ideas! True, I tore out an awful lot at first (I still do on a regular basis), but perseverance has paid off. After I was commissioned to make a yarn portrait of Amy Winehouse for a marketing firm in Canada, I decided to turn the website eventually into Portraits In Yarn instead of limiting my work to pictures of animals. My banner now shows a young Marine, Chad Edmundson, who was killed in Iraq, with an American flag in the background. I have a zillion ideas to keep me busy for a long time; I am very thankful that I have time now that I have retired. The website states that I am from Rapid City SD, but I am rarely there; I ship from wherever in the US I happen to be.

I use all-acrylic yarns almost exclusively (I'm allergic to wool), and my favorite crochet hook is H.

Etsy is the greatest--perfect for me. Thanks, Etsy!
