Announcement   Welcome to Joyful HandKnits! I'm Joy and I love to Knit and Spin. I buy high quality yarns and knit Cable Beanies, Rolled Brim Hats, Scarves and Infinity Scarves, Women's Casual Socks, Men's Bed Socks, Market Bags, Little Girl Ponchos and Mommy & Me Hat Sets that can also be used as Photo Props.

I knit everything myself, use high-quality fiber or yarns for all of my items. All are knitted "in the round" (meaning no seams). I live and work in a Smoke-Free Pet-Free home.

I also knit Felt Purses/Handbags that are knitted with Wool/Mohair yarn and then felted in the washing machine, making them shrink into a dense fabric, perfect for a purse.

I spin Wool fiber into Yarn which I use to knit into Cable Beanies and Rolled Brim Hats. Some of the fiber is a blend of Wool with other fibers, such as Mohair or other fancy fibers. I spin yarn on my Kromski Spinning Wheel. See my "About" section, further down on this page for more on my Spinning process.

My Women's Casual Socks have been very popular. They are thick and comfortable and you'll love them! I also have Men's Bed Socks - the perfect "keep his feet warm in bed" sock for the Men in your life or they can be used for those who need loose socks, such as those who have neuropathy in their feet, or for the elderly.

My Ponchos For Little Girls are just the thing for your little daughter or granddaughter or niece, and I have many different colors. Some of them have Eyelash Yarn at the neckline and hemline. So fun! They are all about 16" long and will fit little girls from age 3 to age 8 or 9.

I also have Market Bags that can be used for many different things: book bags, produce bags, wet swimming clothes bags, etc. They are especially nice when stores no longer use plastic bags and you need reusable bags of your own. My Market Bags will work great. They don't take up any room and stretch ALOT when you fill them up.

I also have Felt Hobo Bags that will be a fun new purse for you or a friend.

And the Mommy & Me Hat Sets that are fun "just because" or for a gift for the new mother. When your baby outgrows their hat, save it for them to put on their dolly or teddy bear. They make darling Photography Props, or can just make your little one cuter than ever.

About

The Creative Process for making Handspun Adult Cabled Beanies

Handspun Hats begin with Wool Fiber, and I enjoy finding high-quality fiber that is soft and durable.

For my Signature Handspun Adult Cabled Beanies, I use the softest Wool fiber I can: Merino or Corriedale or Polworth. This comes all ready to spin. It has been dyed into beautiful color combinations that call out to me. I love all the creativity that has been used by those who dye the fibers.

After buying the fiber, I sit down to spin at my Kromski Spinning Wheel. It has the look of a fairy tale spinning wheel and is small enough to take over to a friend's house to spin. It is a wonderful asset to have a good quality spinning wheel to use.

Once I spin two bobbins of wool, I ply them together, which is actually spinning the two strands together in the opposite direction than they were first spun. It makes a thick and soft two-ply strand of yarn. I use this wonderful soft thick yarn to knit my signature design: The Handspun Adult Cabled Beanie.

I also find high-quality Wool and Wool-Blend yarns that are commercially prepared to make additional Adult Cabled Beanies, to give my customers the option of solid colors and machine washability.

My Newborn Cabled Beanies are mini versions of my Adult Cabled Beanies. Some match an adult hat exactly and some are their own delightful coloration. These cute hats are GREAT for Photography Props, or just for that precious newborn to wear!

My Wool-Acylic Adult Socks are knitted with a machine washable yarn, for washing ease and the warmth that wool offers. They are thick 'n comfy, almost like slippers.

My Little Girl Ponchos are knitted from the top down, getting wider the longer I knit. No sizing needed - just measure downwards from that little bone at the back of the neck to see how long they'll be on your little one. I knit them in a variety of bulky yarns, in many colors and textures.

My felted purses are a really fun addition to my shop. They are knitted REALLY big with Wool yarn and then thrown in the washing machine! That's right! It shrinks them down to "purse size" and creates a dense knitted fabric that makes a perfect purse. You'll LOVE them!
