Announcement   Fiddlestyx™ - unique, heirloom quality knitted toys, stuffed animals and hand knits handmade from earth-friendly natural fibers.

Welcome to Fiddlestyx™, original knitting designs inspired by my love of color, texture and nature. Each design has been created with special attention to quality and detail.

Sure, you'll pay a little more for a handmade product than you would for something mass produced by a machine, but in return you'll receive a unique one-of-a-kind item made by just one set of hands and all of their accumulated talent and experience. To me this is priceless, and why I take pride in handcrafting my products.

My designs are inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds me on Cape Cod. The ocean, the woods, the flowers and gardens - all are constant sources of inspiration.

In this current world of instant gratification and mass-manufacturing, I concentrate on emphasizing the value of handmade and focusing on the process itself.

I believe a hand knitted item has love knit right into it, one stitch at a time. I design using only natural fibers and top quality yarns because, well, I can tell when other people don’t. I don't use a knitting machine because even though hand knitting is a much slower process, it allows all the slight variations in texture and appearance to show. I believe they are what makes a hand knit item unique and beautiful; an item to be loved, treasured, and passed down for generations.

My knitted animals are adapted from a pattern by Fuzzy Mitten and hand knit one stitch at a time using high quality all natural fiber yarns and cotton stuffing.

Thanks for stopping by.

About

Fiddling around with sticks and string...

Morning on Cape Cod.

The misty fog lifts as I inhale the damp, salty air on my way out to the porch with my first cup of coffee.

My favorite time of day.

What will I do today?
Tweak that new bunny sweater design, the one with the complicated cables?
Or maybe a photo shoot is in order, the light really is nice today…..

My knitting needles click softly as I ponder the possibilities.

There are other daily tasks also waiting to be done.
A vegetable plot to be weeded.
Laundry to be washed and hung in the sun to dry.
Dinner to be planned.

I take another sip of coffee.
Exhale.
And Smile.

I know what I’ll do.

I’ll knit.

I believe a hand knitted item has love knit right into it, one stitch at a time. I design using only natural fibers and top quality yarns because, well, I can tell when other people don’t. I would never use a knitting machine because even though hand knitting is a much slower process, it allows all the slight variations in texture and appearance to show.

I spent over 25 years hating a 9 to 5 job in the engineering field. Getting laid off in 2008 was a blessing in disguise. Low on cash and a knitter since childhood, I knit hats as gifts that holiday season. Creating those handmade gifts rekindled a passion. I spent 2009 knitting and designing and Fiddlestyx™ was launched in early 2010.

Running a business single-handedly is hard work and I'm very glad to have the help and support of my husband, Jeff.
In addition to being there to bounce ideas off of, he also makes post office runs, helps with all things computer related, and manages to build more storage space in my office when there doesn't seem to be another inch left!

It is incredibly satisfying to be able to make a living by creating something with my own two hands and I thank each one of you for making it possible for me to do so.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you're here!

    I live with my husband in a tiny house with a big garden on Cape Cod. In between enjoying the outdoors, cooking, reading, and growing things, I knit.
