The custom ordered beanies are perfect for my sisters, great quality of work-as always (this is one of my many orders). Arrived a later than expected but just in time for Christmas-as promised! Cute wrapping with a nice logo. Thank you, Lorraine!
Sometimes you have to travel 2000 miles to find your calling
Most people agree that winter is the crappiest season...it's cold, grey, never ending...it has it's own disorder for crying out loud!
But it's my favorite.
Growing up in central Texas, I always felt cheated when our "winter" would end and the face melting heat returned. I want to wear layers....sweaters, scarves, hats, leggings! So one summer, on a whim, I moved north....way north.
Living in Vermont for 6 years solidified my love of winter, where piling on the layers is essential, and it's where I learned how to knit.
See, the only thing I wanted to be growing up was an artist. I tried out many different artistic hobbies trying to find my passion, or really just something that was interesting enough to want to get good at, to get beyond the beginner ugliness. Because you know what?.......
I'm anal. I'm a perfectionist. I pay close attention to detail, and I have high standards. Designing and making knitwear on my domestic knitting machine is my passion. I love making the cozy, colorful gear I wish I had had for those bitter Vermont winters.
Now I'm back home in Austin pursuing my dream, and complaining about the heat, with my amazingly supportive husband and daughter. They are my constant cheerleaders, pushing me to believe in myself and to dream big.
