to find out about new items as they are listed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The PROCESS:

It's all about the yarns!

To begin with, I select only the softest, most unique and luxurious yarns that look and feel great to me. Most of these come from high end specialty yarn shops, not the local craft mart with your regular old scratchy 4-ply yarn. Grandma may have taught me how to knit, but that doesn't mean I need to stick with the kind of yarn available back in her day.

Next, I let the yarn dictate whether it wants to stand alone, or be carefully mixed with others to make it even more fabulous. Then, I decide on a creation, either fashionable, functional, or both, that best suits the feel and drape of the yarn. Finally, a gorgeous handmade item results for you to enjoy!

About

From my needles to your heart and home

One night my roommate Shirley and I were home watching Edward Scissorhands. As usual, I was knitting away, not being one to sit still unnecessarily. When the movie got to the scene of Edward going to town snipping away at people's hair, Shirley noticed my clacking needles also going full speed, so she dubbed me SusanNeedlehands.

Shirley inspired me to share my work with others and got me set up at the local farmer's market. She used to sit behind my table with me every week and gave me the courage to get past my shyness and interact with others.

This shop is dedicated to her memory and, of course, her love of the naturally handmade. I hope you will get a sense of her -- fun, playful, sweet, a little bohemian, always free-spirited -- from the items I create. May they bring a little extra joy to your life as she did to mine.

Oh, in case you were wondering, green was her favorite color.

Peace. ✌

    Specialty fibers talk to me. They tell me all kinds of cool things I can make with them. If you listen closely, they might speak to you too.

Payment
PayPal is the easiest and quickest method of payment, therefore allowing me to ship your item(s) and you to receive them that much sooner!
Shipping
All items are sent by regular shipping with the USPS unless you request otherwise. If you need other shipping options, please contact me, and I will be glad to find the delivery service that suits your needs.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item becomes "snagged", meaning a stitch gets pulled out of place, simply alternate pulling the item in both directions (horizontally and vertically) until it goes back into place. This is normal with loose-knit items, and not damaging to the garment.

Also, it is normal for ends of yarn to come out of hiding a little bit over time. They can be re-hidden using a crochet hook if necessary.
