About

I am a mom of 4 who loves to knit and crochet...one day, I decided to open an Etsy shop!

I began knitting when I was in middle school, or at least I learned a little and made a scarf, assisted by my beloved maternal grandmother. I didn't knit again until September of 2001, when I was expecting my oldest child. I took a class through our local community education program and eagerly began to knit everything I could...washcloths, dish towels, hats, scarves, blankets, sweaters...and I haven't stopped since! Last January, feeling frustrated that I couldn't do a simple crochet edge on baby sweaters, I watched YouTube videos to learn to crochet. Shortly afterwards, after receiving orders from around the country for various knit items, mainly owl hats, and after much encouragement from friends and family, I decided to take that big leap...and opened my very own Etsy shop! What a first year it has been...business has been booming and I am ever so thankful! My patterns have been downloaded around the world. Claire Mitts and Cowls have shipped internationally. Owl hats have flown to the corners of North America. Friends on Facebook and Instagram send me photos of new patterns and ideas daily.
I also pray as I work, and this has turned into a special ministry, in a way. I have created many items for brave cancer warriors, praying for their healing and strength as I knit or crochet. It is an honor to do so.
Stay tuned, dear customers...there is more to come. Thank you for making 2014 a truly amazing first year.
