Knotwyrd Crochet hats, bags and scarves

Featured in Wired Magazines GeekMoms guide to Great Hats

I have crocheted items since I was in middle school. During that time granny style crochet vest were quite the rage and I sold many of them to my classmates.

For the next 20 years I would crochet a piece or two a year, usually baby afghans and occasional hat to give as gifts, but with my work schedule, never really had the time to do many projects.

Since crocheting is a very hands on without huge equipment activity, I tend to work on projects here, there and everywhere, well everywhere except my studio. I store my yarn and finished pieces at the studio, but I tend to work on items whenever I have some free time. If you would like to see my studio, check out the about page for my other shop mountaingoth

Running an Etsy shop has been a wonderful experience. Sharing stories with other shop owners. Working with buyers to create pieces that they love. Being part of a community of people who love handmade items. Learning the in's and outs of being a shopkeeper and photographer. Actually still working on refining my photography chops

I have a great passion for items made from natural fibers.
Been going around to farmers markets and wool fairs to pick up unique one of a kind yarns as well as commercial yarns.

Organic cotton, has become one of my favorite fibers to work with. Why Organic? Did you know that more pesticide is used in growing cotton than any other crop. Frankly the idea of wearing garments full of pesticide residue is not very appealing to me. Organic cotton is grown without all these pesticides.

Have been working with a lot of different wools such as merino, cashmere, alpaca and llama. On Occasion I come across some organic wool, but it is a rather hard fiber to find. Not only do the sheep need to be raised with an organic diet, but they can not be dipped in pesticides.

Lastly been working with silk and silk blends with wool and other natural fibers. I just love the touchiness of silk. It just feels good.

I also make versions of some of the hats from acrylic yarns. These yarns are less expesive than there natural fiber counterparts and are great for those of us on a budget.

This is actually my second etsy shop. The focus of this shop is fine crocheted items. These are everyday practical items with some hippie boho flair. Hats, scarfs and bags handmade from premium yarns.

Don't forget to check out my other shop,

The other shop is focused on sewn items with costume themes and warm winter hats.
I have started to add patterns to my shops, so far I have gotten excellent feedback on them so I will continue to write some more. If you see an item you would be interested in a pattern for, let me know, and I can probably write something up.

Thanks for stopping in.
