Love it a lot! I purchased it for a thank present and this was the best choice. So cute, dainty and adorable. The owner is very kind and nice. She has a great talent knitting and designing. She even offered the message card sending service and shipped it by the first class mail. How kind of her to do so! I will def be visiting and buying again!

About

Knitting is Body Art with Texture

Thank you for stopping by my shop. A while ago, I was interviewed for a craft show I participated in. I thought, “What a great way to introduce people to the creator of Uptown Knits.”

Q: Is making stuff your full time occupation? Do you have a day job, are you a parent? How do you find the time to balance making stuff and taking time out for your life?
A: Making stuff is my f/t occupation. I am otherwise a retired artist. Usually, I set aside only certain hours a day for my designing, sewing and knitting.

Q: Why are you passionate about "D-I-Y" and what does it mean to you?
A: I have always had my own business, first as a professional artist and now as a knitter. It is a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction to see your creativity produce a finished product and a happy customer wearing a piece made by my hands.

Q: How did you get started with your Etsy Store?
A. I began with my sister store, Bella Cucina Aprons. My daughter got me started and I couldn't stop.

Q: What do you love about Etsy?
A: By far the community of clients who visit my shop. I love to interact with them and learn where they are from. Soon, I am going to post a worldwide map in my dining room to place pushpins indicating from where my clients/friends are from.

Q: Do you recycle and incorporate found or used items in your creations?
A: If I want to jazz up a poncho or handbag, I use fabrics, old ribbons, lace, and buttons that I've held onto forever.

Q: What inspires you?
A: Being successful and knowing that my creations are being enjoyed by another.

Q: What are your favorite bands?
A: Maybe not a band - but I love all show tunes, singers and standards. I really love all music and appreciate music from every generation (am I dating myself here?)

Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: Gone with the Wind and All old dancing musicals

Q: Are you self taught, did a family member teach you or did you take classes?
A: I was first taught to knit in c. 1953....., and I became hooked.

Q: Any oddities about you that the reader may find amusing, an extra toe, can't stand anyone near your armpits, etc.?
A: Other than my artificial right knee, this might count as unusual: I married the boy from next door 60 years ago - We have been together for 73 years. He still make my heart beat!
