My story

I grew up watching my grandmother knit in St-Pol-de-Leon, a small lazy town in Brittany, far away from the hustle and bustle of the Parisian lifestyle. She knit clothes for myself, my sister, my cousins, my favorite poupee and although she tried teaching me, I've never been much use beyond the standard knit and purl techniques to this day.
Fast forward to my life in Maine, which seems so far from those early days in Brittany, yet so familiar in its landscapes, its ruggedness, its people, its roots... and I realize the raw power of the Atlantic Ocean at the dead end of a peninsula would become my home, regardless of which continent that was!
Today, I still try to knit. And I still fail. I began taking a vested interest in stitch markers, following the many mistakes I made when trying anything other than "knit and purl"... and they've saved me many times over. So I started making my own (because as stitch markers tend to do, I lose them on a daily basis around my little house I call the Bump on a Hill).
My knitting friends liked them and this is where my obsession with these little pieces of yarn jewelry began.
That and my obsessive need to have help counting my rows and my stitches!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them. And I am always open to suggestions, comments, feedback, questions. In French or in English, bien sur!
