I just like to knit

OK, I guess you want to know more than that.
Actually, I'm an illustrator and fine artist. But I also love to knit! And I have no willpower in a yarn shop. None. None at all.

My grandma was a fierce knitter and crocheter. She made me a whole wardrobe for my Barbie doll when I was 6, which was the most awesome thing ever. Wee little tiny purses and hats to match fancy little dresses and coats. I used to watch her knit, and I think that planted the seed. I still use some of her needles today.

Knitting is very therapeutic and meditative for me. Its a nice change of pace in between working on an illustration project or drawing. I make things that I would use or wear or give for a gift.

I knit everything myself, usually with a cat 'helping' nearby.
I hope you find something here you like!
Thanks for stopping by.

    I'm Paula, the Tweedy Crab. Why Tweedy Crab? Well, I'm a Cancer (the Crab), and I love tweedy things. When I was trying to come up with a name for the shop that seemed clever. I draw pictures for a living, but also love to knit - so here we are.
