About

Tool Tins, Patterns & Notions for All!

A few years back, a fellow knitter friend brought me back a tin of bacon-flavored bubblegum from a trip to the Pacific Northwest (I think. Hey, I didn't go on the trip!). It was a bit of a gag gift, as the bubblegum was the most nasty stuff you could ever imagine putting in your mouth, but the tin remained behind. He told me, "I thought you could put your knitting notions in it". Genius! It was just the size I needed for a tiny pair of scissors, a tape measure, cable needle, stitch holder, and a few of my handmade stitch markers. It immediately became the most invaluable tool in my knitting bag, and I started wishing I could share this tiny tin of treasures with other knitters.

Fast-forward a few months, and you'll find me sitting in my studio, scratching my head about HOW to make these little tins available to the public. Originally, my idea was to search eBay and other websites for cool, used candy tins, but I quickly realized that this method would eat up a gargantuan amount of time. Suddenly a lightbulb came on: Why not make MY OWN tins, all themed around knitting? I grabbed every swatch and piece of knitwear I had in my house and started snapping photos, and in January of 2011, The Sexy Knitter officially opened here on Etsy.

In the time that has followed, I've expanded my original line of 10 Knitter's Tool Tins to over 100 styles, added Crocheter's Tool Tins, multiple styles of stitch markers, Sexy Knitter logo items, and project bags, along with my entire line of knitting patterns. As of 2013, I'm also offering wholesale prices to brick-and-mortar shops! What will be next? I'm excited to see!
