Here's a little bit about me and how I got started on Etsy!

Welcome to Creative Handknits! I started my Etsy Shop back in 2008 after years of selling my Hand Knits at local Bazaars and even had my Hats and other items in some of the local Crafter Malls that were really popular during the 1990's.

My move to Etsy was the perfect next step during a time when a lot of Crafters where starting up their own Websites. A friend and I even tried that for a while, but we both liked the large community of Crafters that Etsy provided.

All the items in my Shop have been hand knit by me in a "smoke free" home that I share with my husband, grandson and one cat named Muffin.

The Rolled Brim Tams are my specialty. They came about almost 20 years ago when my son was in High School and he and his girlfriend were really into the Retro-Bohemian look. I spent countless hours perfecting the perfect fit and look for my Tams that could be loved by everyone.

Slouch Hats are another favorite and provide that Retro-Bohemian look without the Rolled Brim. The Ski Hats seem to be popular among the younger generation and those who prefer the "Hipster" look rather then the Retro or Bohemian look.

My Handspun Beanies are knit using my own Hand Spun yarn. I love the look and feel of Corriedale Wool, so most of the Fiber I use for my Hand Spun yarn is from that breed. I also prefer variegated Hand Dyed Fiber which takes on a mystery transformation during the spinning process, thus making all my Handspun Beanies OOAK.

Thank you so much for visiting my Shop and taking the time to read my About Page.

    I've been knitting sense I was 9 yrs. old. My mom and grandma are the ones who passed the love of knitting onto me. About 20 yrs. ago I also took up spinning, which seemed like the perfect addition to my love for the Fiber Arts.
