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.

Frequently asked questions

Discontinued and Unavailable Fibers

Yarns may be discontinued by the manufacturer at any time without notice. When that happens, I will substitute a yarn that is as close to the original as possible. If no acceptable substitution can be found, I will cancel and refund the transaction.

When do Items Ship

I allow for up to 3 weeks to create and ship an item because items are made to order. You will receive notification from me via email when I have started your order and again when it ships.

How do you ship?

I use USPS shipping. Buyers choose whether to have item sent First, Priority or Overnight unless the weight of the items makes one of the options unavailable. For instance, prayer shawls cannot be sent First Class because they are over the weight limit.

International customers are responsible for all fees, tariffs, taxes, etc. to their own country. Custome fees may be assessed by a country and those costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Because each country has their own procedures, delivery dates may be impacted. International orders will contain a customs nuber. The buyer can use it with their customs office to try and track a package. Full value is declared on every package - every time - even for the royal family.

Custom and personalized orders

We want you to be happy with your purchase. Items can be returned within 5 days of receipt if it does not fit properly or is not as represented. Contact us through the Etsy Conversation system to discuss the return.

Every effort will be made to correct the concern. A store credit will be issued for the purchase price should the item be returned.

Custom orders are final. Pattern sales are final. Afghan sales are final.

Shipping is not refundable.

Sometimes a fiber or material will be discontinued by the manufacturer. If possible, I will substitute a fiber at equal or greater value with similar properties.

What if I Don't Receive My Order?

We will open an investigation with the USPS. No refunds will be made until that investigation is completed. The tracking number allows both the buyer and seller to see where the package is in the delivery system and will assist in finding the package.

We take claims of non-receipt or missing items very seriously. Upon notification that items are missing or never received, we will open a case with the USPS and ask for an official postal inspection. This will include filing a form with all information, including the information of the buyer and seller. The postal service may interview the buyer and ask for a signed affidavit. Refunds are given after the inspection concludes AND if the inspection finds fault with the delivery system.
