Well made and uniquely beautiful. A perfect accent for those who don't like heavy bracelets weighing them down. Or for anyone, for that matter. Excellent quality. Fast shipping. I highly recommend this shop.

Knitting inspired by love and friendship.
My story is pretty simple. I have been an avid knitter for decades (which is a little scary to admit) and have produced 100's and 100's of sweaters, mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, socks, stockings, baby shower gifts, wedding shower gifts, blankets, shawls, skirts, dresses, lingerie...basically you name it and I have probably tried to knit it.
Once I had mastered the art (and craft) of knitting I just couldn't stop. The vast majority of projects over the years have been given to friends (or any one I liked or even sometimes people I hardly knew because my network was overflowing with knitted gifts). Time and time again grateful recipients asked me "why don't you sell your work". It was a great question and easy one to answer for me at the time - "why would anyone want to buy my work".
In 2008 I decided to try to answer this question differently. My friends believed in me so why didn't I. So this is the story. My friends believed in me and encouraged me and I finally heard their message. Thank you everyone who has supported and believed in my talent, dreams and, well, me!
