Announcement Hi, I'm Deb. I make stuff. Knitted stuff, crocheted stuff. Sometimes tatted or embroidered. Baby stuff, grown up stuff. Weird stuff, traditional stuff. What can I make for you?

"You should sell that!"
I am always knitting. Unless I'm crochetting or tatting. Sometimes I'll be embroidering something. But usually, I'm knitting. Even with the kids around.
I like making lace most of all. Its so pretty, so elegant, and so surprisingly sturdy! Hand made lace washes with the toughest, and lasts for decades. 5 years ago I trimmed my wedding vail with lace knitted somewhere around 80-100 years ago (we found it in a bag in my great-aunt's basement).
I like to take the old laces and "lift" the patterns, to make it in a different length... or the same length, but an undamage peice (some of the old stuff has been cut as it comes off of worn out pillowcases, necklines, or tablecloths).
I also make a lot of sweaters. Kids sweaters were my big thing, for my nephews. They're no longer kids, so I'm making grow-up sweaters a lot more these days.
Baby things are also frequently on my needles, with 2 under 2 in my own house.
I don't like blankets. I get bored. But if you REALLY want one, sure, I can do it.
Scarves, hats, gloves, mittens, glittens (yeah, glittens. Glove to the first knuckle, then a mitten flap over the top), socks, slippers, diaper covers, booties, bonnets, shawls, shrugs, cardigans, stuffed animals, random organs (yes, I've been asked to knit a model of an internal organ. A uterus, to be precise)... I can do it. I have done it. I'd be happy to do it again!
But there's only so much need for stuff in my house.
And furthermore, we're a one income family, so I can not indulge my yarn habit too often.
So I need an excuse to make some of this stuff. Someone else needs to provide the final residence of the item for my husband to understand its presence on my kneedles.
So I set up a store. I get a little money (I try to keep my prices reasonable...a lot of people are trying to stretch their money, but don't want to have to give up quality), the fun of making, and I don't have to find a drawer for the item when its done. All around win!
