Girl Met Yarn & Became a Mad Hooker. ;)

For a wider selection of my cozy items or if you had your eye on something that's no longer here, stop by my website:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... okay it was this galaxy & the year was 2006. ;) I had a massive yarn stash & no inclination to stop buying more or cease crocheting. While shopping on eBay for... more yarn, I saw a seller reference Etsy as a place to buy & sell handmade. And so, here I am. I knit & crochet all my items by hand. My shop is named after my now departed cat. She was the Original Smitten Kitten & I still miss her.

I love to travel for many reasons but one of my favorites is checking out small yarn shops to see what exciting things they have on offer. It's just one more excuse to add to my yarn stash.

More about me:
I am one of 10 people on the planet who is not now, nor has ever been, on Facebook. When I get a 25th hour in my day, I'll get right on it.

If I were a color, I'd be purple. Mostly.

If I could be anywhere in the GFFA (that's Star Wars speak for "galaxy far, far away" to those of you not so afflicted with Sci-fi obsession) I would be in the Jedi Temple Archives. That's right, I'd be in the library.

I still consider Syfy's reboot of BSG (Battlestar Galactica) to be the best show I've ever watched from beginning to end. I also miss Caprica & am holding out for a Holoband.

While I know NASA & Dr. deGrasse Tyson know their solar system nomenclature, in my heart, Pluto will always remain a planet (not a dwarf planet).

I'm an avid NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) participant. It's every November & a global event: If you stop by my blog you may notice that I read... a lot & have opinions about the books I read. Sometimes, I'm so inspired by a character, I name things I make after them.

Thanks for reading! xoxo

    I love yarn, crochet & knitting. In addition to yarny endeavors, I'm often caught reading, laughing, writing, travelling & seeking new ways to inflict joy on others. My husband keeps me laughing & braves my yarn stash stoically.

Customers must contact me via email or Etsy conversation before return is initiated. Returned items must be in the same condition in which they were sent (i.e. unworn/unused, smoke & scent free & with tags still affixed) and the cost of shipping the return is to be incurred by the customer. I will happily issue a refund minus the original s/h cost.

Because of the nature of custom & personalized items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns. Also items on sale with free shipping, are not able to be exchanged or returned.

In the event a package mailed to the address given by the customer goes "Unclaimed" & is returned to me via USPS, I will hold the package for one week while trying to reach the customer. If there is no response, I will refund the price of the item minus the initial shipping fee. If customer wishes an "Unclaimed" item to be reshipped, it will be at the customer's expense.

In the instance of an item being returned because of customer not collecting their package or declining to pay VAT, duties, taxes or any fees deemed applicable by any Customs, tax or mail delivery service in any country, I will refund the price of the item minus the shipping cost. The refund will take place once the item has come back to me (which can take up to several months).

Should an item go missing in the post, every effort will be made to resolve the situation with the customer to their satisfaction.
I accept credit & debit cards through Paypal (you don't even need a Paypal account to pay this way) & Etsy Payments. Paypal & Etsy keep your payment information secure. I don't receive your credit card information.

All Maryland residents will be assessed Sales Tax for all purchases during checkout. Additionally, the states of Washington and Pennsylvania have tax applied on sales & remitted by Etsy to those States directly.
If it's in the shop it's ready to ship (unless it's specifically stated Made to Order)! Ready to Ship items usually ship within 24 hours (business day). I ship orders to the address provided by the customer reflected on the receipt of the payment method.

All non-US customers please note that all duties, taxes, VAT & customs fees assessed by your friendly customs agent on imported items are not my responsibility & they are collected at point of delivery to you NOT by me. My prices DO NOT include VAT, duties, tax or customs fees or any handling fee your delivery service applies on their end. Please be aware of the laws & fees associated with shopping abroad that your country deems applicable & their remittance process.

UK customers see here for more information:

Additionally, I cannot & do not influence the amount of time it takes for customs clearance.
