Hi there! I am Kate Elizabeth, the 25 years old crafter behind One Solar April.

I was born in Montreal but I grew up in the countryside (Bas-Saint-Laurent) and I have been living in Québec City for six years now. I am currently studying documentation in college after completing half a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Creative Writing at Laval University. I love reading, writing and anything book-related. Apart from winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, I don't really know what I want to do with my life, but I would be happy working at a library when I complete my degree.

In my spare time, you can find me either: reading in the bath, rewatching David Fincher's filmography on Netlix, walking outside at random times of the night, and of course knitting. I learned to knit and crochet when I was 9 years old and I have never stopped since. What I love making most are socks and mittens, because they're quick to make and so useful. I love mixing colours, experimenting with the bold and the muted in my patterns, and it is a challenge for me to make my knits warm enough for the ferocious Canadian winter, at the very least.

Outside of Etsy, you can find me on Instagram where I'm very active and love to meet new people. Come say hi!

Welcome to my shop! I hope that you'll find something to your liking here.

All (or most) of my items are one-of-a-kind. Everything is made in a 100 % smoke-free, pet-free environment.

I try to use photographs that portray the items as close to reality as possible, but remember that colours may differ depending on your device's screen. Do you notice that I myself look different (skintone, hair colour, etc.) in my various photos and are you concerned about my use of filters? Fear not! Some yarn colours are harder to photograph than others and I apply filters to those images precisely to try and make the colours closer to reality. Also, I may just be doing my makeup differently. 😋💄

Any questions? Feel free to ask!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I normally do not accept to refund orders and will only do so in exceptional cases. I try to be as transparent as possible about the condition in which my items are sent to you, and if you have any questions AT ALL before you purchase, don't hesitate to ask.

As all my knits are one-of-a-kind, I also can't replace or exchange them. I could let you choose a similar item to replace the one you purchased if you should receive it damaged to the point that it cannot be used (with picture or a video as proof of the damage).

Same goes in the case of a piece arriving to you with a big defect that wasn't advertised: let me know (provide pictures please!) and we will work something out. :)
I use standard mail delivery to ship my items, without tracking numbers. I do not ship before I have received payment.

I do not take responsibility if an item gets lost in the mail (because is it ever the case?), but if you want me to send something through registered mail, let me know before you purchase, I'll give you the shipping rates and I'll create a special listing for your item. We can also discuss it after you order (if I haven't shipped it yet) and you can pay for the added cost through PayPal.

Same goes if you'd like priority shipping with a tracking number.

I am not aware of the taxes or customs fees in other countries and such fees are out of my control. In the case of an international order, please allow for 2 to 5 weeks before delivery.

I ship orders once or twice a week (depending on the number of them), so if you need yours quickly (and don't want to pay the extra $$ for priority mail), just convo me and I'll try and ship it right away. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders: why not? Convo me and we can work something out.

Big order: if you would like to purchase three items or more in the same order, let me know which ones and I'll work up a special discounted listing. I'm thinking no shipping fees or something similar.

Reviews: please leave one! I care about your opinion and know there is always room for improvement. If you have something negative to say about an order, please convo or email me before leaving a review and I'll do my best to fix the situation.
