bpenatzer's Shop Announcement


Have some great mother's day presents and there is still time to make her a custom item like a beautiful shawl in her favorite colors.

Enjoy our Clearance sale and convo me for a quantity discount. The sale will be ending very soon and everything will return to their regular price. Thank you

We need to drastically reduce our inventory of both garments and materials, so if you are interested in some of our materials, esp. handspun yarns, please convo me.

Stop by our facebook page to see some of our new custom creations

Get your custom items shawls, sweaters, scarves and more. As clarification, most of the items in my shop are ONE OF A KIND, so once it is sold, it is gone. I may be able to make something similar, but my yarns are mostly from a rescue farm and are handspun and hand dyed and are always different. In addition, many of the sources for my unusual yarns are no longer available and I do not plan on increasing my inventory size. So the inventory I have may be the last source of some of the yarns, and along with that my store inventory is getting smaller. So if you find something you love, I suggest you purchase it now.

I will be cutting down the number of items in my shop since the inventory is large and along with that will only be making custom orders from my existing inventory of materials.

Stop by our facebook page blue sky knitting and see some of the beautiful custom creations I made this month, especially the handmade stockings I made for a good friend. I love making these special items plus I have an entire room of yarn so if you don't see a color or style you want let me know, customs are designed without any additional design fees.

***BTW for those of you who have never custom ordered from me, we go through all the selections up front, the yarn, sizing, etc. and if I have the materials in stock (which I normally do) the order will be out in less than a week. So it should be a great experience and you get exactly what you want. So if you see something in the shop, but its not exactly what you want, lets customize an item for you.

Most of the design are original one of a kind. I have had some requests from yarn providers to make designs from your yarns. I would love to, so if you have a yarn you would like me to design a pattern for, convo me, be glad to work with you.

BRAND NEW COLLECTION....Well the time is finally here we are adding our new collection, hand knit sweaters and vests. In my search for the perfect sweater, I realized there isn't one perfect sweater but perfect sweaters for the occasion. So I decided to make a weekend sweater collection, comfy and relaxed, some call it the boyfriend sweater. So here are the first of many. You can buy the sweaters from the collection or if you want one a little different, or a lot different just let me know and I can make it.

Come see the addition of new colors and styles of shawls, these are the most popular item in our shop. The yarns, locks and curls are custom dyed and spun for our shop, plus new lightweight year round shawls including linen.

I have cute summer tank vests, in cotton, silk, linen and even paper. Then as the weather gets cooler sweaters ranging from a light pullover, a sweatshirt style pullover with pockets, a slubby tunic to that super bulky weekend baggy sweater with a twist, 3/4 sweaters so you can actually use your arms without always pushing up your sleeves. So have a look and let me know what you think, I' ll be glad to give you little discount for your thoughts. It is not too early to order that special custom sweater for you and or that special someone, it does take me a little while to make them, so now is the best time to order.

We prefer paypal as form or Etsy gift cards as forms of payment, but will take credit cards. Credit cards not used within paypal will delay your shipment until the payment is received. Paypal shipments will go out the next business day. Thanks for understanding
If anyone is interested in purchasing some homespun or other yarns let me know I am de stashing some of my stash.

Remember we take special orders with no added fees; however, please review our new requirements for special orders. How about a shawl for your best girl, mom? Anyway avoid the rush we have lots of yarn in stock and can purchase other yarn special ordered from our rescue farm, if necessary. If you have an idea for something like an afghan, mittens, fingerless gloves, a headband, a ski hat, etc. but don't see it in the shop, just ask us about it, we can make just about anything that is knitted or crocheted. Hope to see you soon.

We know that since we have one of a kind items that sometimes the item you want is purchased before you can buy it. For this reason we will work with you several ways, we can hold an item for a little while for you, we can perhaps do layaway,or figure out some way to help you with your purchase. We are proud of our relationship with our customers and that is what we strive for so let's work together.


Welcome to Blue Sky Knitting! We make unique, one of a kind, hand knit scarves and shawls using artistic yarns which are primarily handspun and hand dyed yarns from some of the best yarn providers around. Our primary focus is to make one of a kind items using unique materials from rescue farms. Well we have been working on a brand new collection of light weight items in some great new weights of yarns which have just been added to the shop. We just did a large update of shawls and a few holiday items, much more to come, enjoy.

In addition we have been working with some organizations and donating items; a primary focus right now is making a bunch of items to donate to Emily's Hats for Hope Initiative. Join us if you can.

If you have suggestions of things you would like to see in the shop, let me know, no commitment is required for you to suggest, I love new ideas and of course, you should start seeing holiday items any day.

By the way we now take credit cards and gift cards in our shops, so you can pay by paypal or a credit card.

++++++Historic information
Welcome back to my little shop. I have lots of new colors and patterns of yarns, and some really beautiful textures and unusual curls. So let me know what your are thinking about and we can get it made.

As you might have seen we have started to expand our collections and we have a Harry Potter Collection, a Movie Collection which will be expanding, including the Lord of the Rings; of course, we will continue our Rock n Roll Collection a holiday collection with more colors, and more to come.

This crazy love of wool and knitting mixed with my love for art has prompted me to open this shop. Many of you have my handmade scarves and other items, so here is a place where you can see what is new and hopefully stimulate your creativity. While this is not my 'real' job, it is a love of mine and my family. I will be working with some wonderful handspinners and hand dyers of wool products and you will hear about them as my projects are posted. So welcome and while I start slow, hopefully we will have a nice selection fo you, please enjoy our new Rock n Roll Collection, Movie Collection, Baby Collection and of course our holiday shop featuring unique garments, presents for you to give and for yourself. Please feel free to contact me anytime and maybe we can create something together.

I am working on some beautiful new garments. I work with some of the best yarn spinners in the world, many who have shops here on Etsy. They include Dreamfiber, Yospun, Storybook Fibers, and several others, but probably my most important provider is Crazy Quilt Homestead Wool (my exclusive wool supplier who is a home for rescue animals), they provide most of my wools. Some of the things I have been working on a set of garments from Crazy Quilt, have the ever expanding Rock n Roll line, a line of shawls, a series of school scarves, and the featured Holiday Shop (valentine and St. Patty's are coming), the new baby shop, Novelty Scarves and a Movie collection. We have also started providing props to photographers. I would like to thank my daughters who wind the yarn, and now help with a some knitting (esp. with the baby items) and are the spirit behind the new baby collection and my poor husband who has too look at these piles of yarns that seem to be taking over.

We are also providing garments for those who are less fortunate or ill, and I hope to have more information on this in the future.

Remember we are glad to make custom orders, but prefer to keep our one of a kind mindset. Any time you need your item wrapped special, let me know we can take care of that for you and mail you gift on its way.

So keep posted, hope to see you soon. Contact me with any questions and ask about volume discounts, if you don't see what you are looking for ask me about it and hopefully we will be able to accommodate you. Take care.

Additional information on custom orders

Will be glad to work with you on custom orders; however, we now have to change our policy due to recent issues with custom orders. We now require at least a 50 % deposit before any materials are ordered and payment in full before the garment is started. In addition, we will review your feedback levels for other purchases. We are sorry to have to do this but a few sour apples ruin it for the rest. Thanks for your understanding.

This shop accepts Etsy Gift Cards.
