It’s been a miserable start to March; brighten up your backpack or keys with this sweet cacti keyring (also available as a magnet).
I’ll be waving a pair of Lila Mitts off as they make their way to Germany later today. Packing orders makes me so happy now that I’ve found my brand raised_handsskin-tone-2muscleskin-tone-2

About

This is the story of a girl who found herself again with the help of knitting.

Welcome to moloneymakes! I’m Sophie; barista, plant lover, cake eater and yarn enthusiast.

I first learnt to knit around the age of 7 after I begged my mum to teach me after seeing some family friends doing so. I spent hours working up something that loosely resembled a square and remember the sense of achievement I felt after. Thus began a phase of knitting up square after square (I think I envisioned some magnificent blanket) which lasted a few months, perhaps a year, but faded as my young mind no doubt found another curiosity to bestow my concentration.

It wasn’t until my 20s that knitting made a reappearance in my life. In my years at university I fell ill, caught up in the depths of anorexia and battling mental illness and it was during recovery from that that I picked up my needles again. With each stitch I created, a little piece of me began to return and I have honestly never looked back since.

Sharing my knitted creations brings me such joy, so when a couple of people suggested that they would actually pay money for something that I made it set the wheels in motion: operation ‘etsyshop2016’. I gave myself a year to do my research, to write up patterns and create some sort of inventory; I wanted to do this properly, and so 31st August 2016, Moloneymakes was born.

I have since discovered taught myself how to crochet, have created several original patterns and have a great number of projects under my belt. Sharing my handmade goodies brings me such joy; to think I can share them with so many people warms my heart even more.
