I haven't tried the pattern yet, so I'll wait and edit this review after I make the cowl. However, customer service and delivery was exceptional. Thanks so much!

About

From the Field to Fashion

In my early years of college, I picked up crochet as a stress reliever and as a creative outlet. At the time I was just a science major and had very few opportunities to release my creative juices.

Initially inspired by nature, and all that it has to offer us sustain-ably I only used naturally derived materials. I am still in awe of the beauty that surrounds us and the wealth of fibers and pigments out there for us to use.

I started making more and more things and had no place to keep them, so being the entrepreneur that I am, I started a shop on Etsy. It was slow going at first; the learning curve was (and still is) steep. I kept going with it, making friends along the way who supported me immensely.

In 2010, business really picked up and I started to turn some heads in the Etsy community and was chosen to be a Featured Seller in October.

At the end of 2012 after graduating school with a Bachelors in Evolutionary Biology and Studio Arts, I got a job with Schacht Spindle Company where my love for all things fiber exploded. Since then I have picked up spinning yarn, weaving on four different looms and an immense amount of knowledge of the industry.

I have enjoyed creating tutorials and classes on youtube and curious.com. I believe in empowering people to create something on their own that they can feel proud of, and education is the heart of that. I recently picked up knitting again, and have been enjoying creating knitting patterns!

For the past few years, I've been exploring textiles, patterns, and silhouettes. I love everything handmade and put every ounce of myself into what I create.
