WOO HOO! A BIG SCORE! Just the best kind of remaining yarns to keep in my stash, to use for embellishments, etc. The sale was excellently priced, perfectly advertised, very well packaged, and quickly sent. I could not be happier, and finding these nice TWO lots! was really like finding a little bit of treasure. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your careful composition---these will be put to very good use! PS, these Vanna White skeins? Pure gold in the realm of finding treasure. Was very happy to find these - they're nice to work with, and do not feel scratchy/itchy if they get used for garments -I've worked with them before. LOVED finding these-THANK YOU AGAIN & AGAIN!

About

The Barn Burned Down - Now I Can See the Moon...

GETTING STARTED
Knitting is my passion that has its roots in childhood. I learned from my mom, way back when we were carving our needles out of dinosaur bones. And then, sadly, I fell off the wagon and embraced needlepoint and counted cross stitch for countless years (pardon the pun). However, being a woman of true grit and strong character, I saw the light and found my way back.

For a long time, knitting was an avocation and not a vocation for me. While others expressed their creativity through cooking or gardening or painting, I was clicking away on my needles. In sheer and utter desperation, friends and family finally convinced me to open a store on etsy. I just know that they were getting so tired of receiving scarves, shawls, baby blankets and hats for birthdays and every other special occasion! In September 2008, I took the plunge and opened Foxy G. Knits where everything is knit by hand – from my heart to yours.

PICKING A SHOP NAME
When my first little granddaughter was born eight years ago and we were selecting our grandparent names, I joked that I would be “Grandma Lo” by day and “Foxy G.” by night. Two years later, when I was trying to come up with a name for my shop, Foxy G. Knits was a natural!

WHAT MAKES MY ITEMS UNIQUE/SPECIAL?
Foxy G. Knits features hand-knit, one-of-a-kind shawls, wraps and scarves that are fashioned by combining diverse yarn textures and color palettes. Designed for today’s woman, each piece of wearable art encompasses both style and comfort.

My favorite part of the creative process is coordinating and blending various yarn colors and textures within the same garment. In addition to designing and knitting all the items that appear in the store, I also knit shawls for a local hospice.

MY OTHER PASSIONS
When I am not knitting, I am collecting weird, old ashtrays and other tobacciana. Currently, I have more than 4,500 items. (They live in my master bedroom, and I inhabit the west wing!) I also have cigarette cases and boxes, lighters, old magazine ads, sheet music and many promotional pieces that were put out by the various cigarette companies. My goal is to one day curate an exhibit of the 20th century as seen through these items.

About eight years ago, I became the self-proclaimed family historian and keeper of records and photographs as a way of honoring those ancestors that came before us and letting future generations know from where they came. It is a gift of love to my grandchildren.
