Just trying to put my yarn obsession to good use. Because I want more yarn. Always.

I have a close friend who has crocheted for years. For years! And I've always made fun of her for that. Yikes. But then my husband and I decided to take a 16-hour drive to visit family and we agreed I needed something to do so that I wouldn't get bored after the first hour. (I've never been a big fan of the long car ride... road trips = nightmare)

I went to my friend and asked for some resources to get me started on my new crochet journey. I was also pregnant at the time and thought it would be the best idea to start a baby blanket with a more advanced yarn right out of the gate. Disaster would be an apt term for the end result. I didn't crochet again for 6 months or so.

I picked it up again out of sheer boredom (sensing a pattern yet?) and haven't been able to put my hooks down since. I figured it would just be for fun and I wasn't even close to good enough yet to sell my creations. Then... another vendor at a market asked why I wasn't selling my crochet items. I told her that I wasn't good enough/didn't have the confidence yet. She sighed and repeated her question. This woman is The Queen of crochet and had all but smacked me upside the head. Which I'm sure she would have if she wasn't so nice.

So in March of 2018, I started Stitch On A Stick and it has lived on my other Etsy shop page (Kiss My Scrubs) until now. Now, it has grown and I'm excited to give it the room to do so. The majority of the items you see in this shop are my own patterns and designs. The goal is to expand into offering patterns, yarn totes, t-shirts, etc. Thank you for coming along on this journey with me.

Yours in Yarn,

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yup, I'll make something custom for you. I would love the challenge, in fact. However.
*Custom orders cannot be canceled once the order has been finalized and placed.
*Custom orders cannot be returned or exchanged for any reason.
*Photos will be taken of the custom item before it is shipped to document its condition upon leaving my hook.
*Unless we both specifically agree otherwise, photos of your custom piece will be used to promote my business and offer examples of what I can do to other customers.
*Custom orders will be more expensive than ready to ship items due to them "jumping the line" so to speak and taking priority over other items along with the time it takes to design them.

Care instructions

There are some yarns you can machine wash. Which is fine and absolutely your choice. I would recommend hand washing them, however, and laying them flat to dry. It will preserve the life of your item.

Care instructions are included with each item.

Why Are Your Products so Expensive?? *Clutches pearls*

Variation: Your blankets are really $89??

Because! They are!

Crochet items take a lot of time to make. Maybe the hat itself only took 2 hours from start to finish, but it was a lot of work getting to that point. I've spent hours developing my skills and even more designing my own patterns. There are have been tears, & blood, & sweat, & screaming. It's a horror movie really.

When it is all said and done, I want to be paid for the hours I've put into the product. After I pay for the yarn, I should get more than good vibes in return for my work.

If that still doesn't make sense, think about it this way. What would you say to your boss if they only wanted to pay you $.10/hour?

Now, why would I want to do that?
