About

I sell homespun yarns and knitted garments for the glory of God and the enjoyment of others.

Ever since I can remember, I have loved to watch spinners on their spinning wheels and weavers on their looms, and my family and I have had many opportunities to watch spinners and weavers during all our reenactments! Stories in the Bible of spinners, weavers, knitters, and sewers have also intrigued me over the years, and sometime between the ages of 10 and 13, I had all but decided I wanted to spin and knit for my future "job".

Rabbits have been my favorite animal since I was an early teenager, and I soon learned about angora rabbits, whose super soft, wooly hair needed to be periodically trimmed down like a sheep's, and then could be spun. I purchased my first two angora rabbits in 2009, and have loved them ever since! I currantly own four rabbits, and their beautiful wool has served me well.

My grandmother taught me how to crotchet when I was about 8, and though I didn't practice much at first, I later returned to the art, and really enjoyed it! I learned how to knit when I was 16, and I have now mastered many of the stitches and techniques of knitting (and also how to fix mistakes without ripping everything out and starting over!). I took a class on spinning when I was 16, and after some tutoring from a friend, I soon picked up on the rhythm of pedaling the wheel while controlling the wool with my fingers.

By the time I graduated highschool in 2009, I was ready to start my spinning and knitting business. My first customer told me about Etsy, and I opened my shop in February of 2010. Since then, I have built my own additional website, and have enjoyed selling on Etsy, and at local craft shows. I have given lessons and demonstrations of spinning and knitting to many, and I am so grateful for the abundant ways that God has provided for me!

    I am a daughter of my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I spin yarn and knit items that are both useful and beautiful. I work at my home, and I raise angora rabbits to use their soft hair or wool for my yarns and knitted garments & accessories that I sell.
