Excellent service and fast delivery! I missed after checking this out the first time so the seller made another one and reserved it for me. Great quality item too.

Self taught and self efficient.

I started my shop about a year ago after a beautiful but long Thanksgiving drive encouraged me to knit. I'm the type of person that needs to keep their hands busy (or trouble will inevitably happen!) so I turned to knitting. I printed off my "How to get started" directions, bought a couple skeins of yarn and needles, and off I went!
Eventually, one of my co-workers at my daytime job urged me to learn to crochet as she had promised that it was much easier and quicker than knitting. Lo and behold - I loved it! So now I am a self taught knitter and crocheter.
My shop is simply my living room and craft room. I hail from Michigan so I am accustomed to chilly weather. Also, due to Michigan's ever changing-on-a-dime weather, my store is in full bloom all year round.
I do not consider what I do work nor a job. It happens to be my hobby, of which I can joyfully share with all of you. My 'store hours' are whenever my husband and I get a chance to relax. Most of the time my items are crafted during Detroit Tigers' or Red Wings' games or during my evening guilty pleasure shows.
I love what I do and I do what I love. If you ever find yourself wanting an item from my store that you just don't see, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be more than happy to work with you on a custom order. If you're from the Grand Rapids, MI area please contact me and we can work a custom order for you with free shipping!

Best wishes to you and yours!

    Knitting and crocheting are simply my dearest hobbies. I love using my hands to make very simple, classic garments for all. I love the warmth and the sweet comfort a thick soft scarf provides on chilly, crisp days. Nothing beats homemade comfort!
