Announcement   Everything at Squirrel Moon is handknitted and one of a kind. Most of my sweaters are made from handspun, hand-dyed, or recycled yarn--I love color and texture! The buttons I use are almost always vintage finds. And if I should use the same yarn more than once for a particular design, there will always be some unique element in each garment. After all, your doll doesn't want to meet herself (or himself) coming and going, right?

Now, the serious stuff: my household is nonsmoking, and my short-haired dog doesn't play with the dolls or the yarn. Because many of the yarns I use are hand- or small batch-dyed, I wash each item carefully to remove any excess pigment. Fiber content is noted in the individual listings. If you're shopping for a doll that doesn't fit into the BJD size range--or if you want to estimate the fit of a sweater for your particular doll--please convo me for exact measurements.

Thanks for stopping by! Please come back soon to see what's new.

About

Surprise! Dolls are more fun to knit for than people!

I started collecting BJDs in 2004, and began knitting sweaters for them right off the bat. For quite a while, I sold the odd sweater informally on my LiveJournal, or put a few on eBay, but it took me ages to realize that Etsy existed and might be the right place for me to open a shop.

Over the past several years, I've all but given up knitting in human scale. It's such fun to see the doll-size sweaters come together, and to be able to use one-off skeins of awesome yarn that wouldn't ever be enough to make a big-people item.

Since I set up my shop in January of 2010, I've had a wonderful time. My only frustration is that my day job (I'm a college professor) interferes so much with my knitting. Luckily, my colleagues and the campus administration have been understanding, especially once they saw that I could knit and argue--er, discuss energetically--at the same time.

    I'm a late bloomer when it comes to knitting--a friend taught me during my graduate-school year abroad, at Edinburgh University. My family always said that I inherited the crafty gene from my dad's Aunt Grace, because there wasn't any on Mom's side.

I'm sorry, but my work schedule doesn't leave me enough time for custom orders. If that ever changes, I will post an announcement here!

About customs fees: International customers are responsible for all fees imposed, including import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the buyer's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays of weeks or months. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions. I do not refund original shipping charges for buyers who refuse items because of the customs charges applied by their country.
