Jennifer went above and beyond to knit me a beautiful pair of socks really, really fast! Cannot say enough good things about her shop. She deserves your business. Many thanks!

Jennifer, Like everything else you've made for me, I absolutely love my mittens and the boot cuffs! The mittens are perfect for keeping my hands and fingers warm, yet allowing me to use my phone or a pen. Both pair are just beautifully constructed, the yarns are soft and warm with rich jewel tone colors. And btw, my friends loved their boot socks and we had a perfect winter vacation. Thank you again. You definitely have new repeat customer. Kim

About

Hand Made With Tender Loving Care And Attention To Detail

My love of knitting and crocheting started in 1971 while pregnant with my first child I taught myself how to knit a baby sweater. In those days we, of course, couldn't find out whether we were carrying a boy or girl so I chose baby green and a complicated pattern for an inexperienced knitter. The sweater turned out really good so I was off and going with more knitting and crocheting. For some reason I was always making things for other family members. Anything from baby booties, sweaters, blankets, tablecloths and rugs.

Fast forward to 2001. I started hand knitting socks after bringing my two Haitian born babies home. Two girls ages 2 months and 12 months I was really busy. However I could carry a sock in progress on a small circular needle easily so the knitting continued. Family members and friends wanted socks and I could not keep up with hand knitting and found an antique Canadian Auto knitter for sale then a while later I purchased a P.T. LeGare 400. After one of my sons helped me get it going I was able to make custom socks. One order led to another. I then started attending craft fairs with socks and other things I had knit and crocheted.

Early this year I decided to ramp things up. My daughters are starting their Freshman year in high school. Good timing to attend more events and spend time establishing an online shop.

I like to use mostly natural fibers and search online for best quality buying in bulk when necessary to keep prices down for the consumer. In addition to American made yarns I purchase from several other countries. My favorites in addition to Merino wool are Alpaca and Angora and Kashmir goat fiber. Bamboo cotton blend yarn is also one I like to use.

I enjoy making custom items and solving Foot pain issues for people by providing the right socks for them.

I love how people smile when putting their socks on for the first time.
