This is a well made, super slouchy hat! Great for men or women. I absolutely love it! My only criticism is that when the hat arrived, it had a very strange odor to it. As is it were stored in a musty basement. Had to wash it twice to get rid of the funk.

About

Two Sticks, Some String and a new Horizon

designbcb started out as a not-for-profit graphics organization. When I moved out of that business, I kept all the legal stuff and when I decided to open an online shop, the easiest thing was to keep the name since everything else was all set up.

The knitting shop itself was set up because I had a huge amount of finished objects taking over my house. I was donating many of them to the church knitting group I started to be sold twice a year at what was once a pancake breakfast and bake sale but the knitting group added our crafts and books.

Twice a year wasn't enough to contain the fiber monster taking over the house so when I stumbled upon Etsy, I decided to take a shot. At first I just dabbled with it but when the church kicked out my knitting group, knitting and crochet became more than a hobby and the shop became more than a pastime.

It's taken a few years but both the shop and the knitting group is growing. When we left the church we had 80 members, we now have 200 plus. Last year, the shop had it's best year and hopefully I can reproduce the success and build on it.

Knitting and crochet has changed, enhanced and saved my life. Great friendships and partnerships have been formed and it's managed to keep my attention longer than anything has. It is a true spiritual gift.

Because I don't have to rely on the shop as my main source of income, I can afford to price advantageously to my customers. I count this as another way to spread the blessing. I am determined and dedicated to providing high quality goods at a price that adds value to value.

Every item has a back story and the world of knitting/crochet is really deep and impacting. You can read more about it on my blog -The Knitter's Restaurant. For daily deals and other info, check out the Facebook page.

    My poor hubby. He once lived in a house. Now he lives in a yarn barn. It's in every room, even the garage and I've never knit in there. His wish is to get a path from one room to another.
