I appreciate you stopping by, hopefully I will gain your confidence to wear one of my creations.

All Items are new and have NEVER been worn. They are produced in a smoke free environment. All yarn is also stored in smoke free environment.

I make an effort to have stock items, however some are better made to measure.

I use many different blends of yarns from pure wool, wool blends, to acrylics. If you experience skin sensitivity please read the listing carefully.

***** REDUCED RATE PRIORITY SHIPPING United States *****
^^^^^^^^^ Reduced First Class Rates to Canada ^^^^^^^^

~~~~*~*~*~*SHIPPED VIA USPS*~*~*~*~~~~

Each one is done by this Handmaiden and is truly hand knitted (Needles and me) (Not Machine). These are also my designs and in some cases stitch patterns that I have not found in any book to date.

The mannequin that these are shot with is a 34" bust. Size 10 form.

Plus Sizes Available upon request for most items. There is an up-charge for materials for extra length, width, etc.

Should you see something that you would like to adapt to a different yarn or texture or size, button style or color etc. Please feel free to contact me and I'll make it to custom order with your collaboration and a yarn that will suit your needs.

My yarn stash is quite extensive if you see a design you like and need a different yarn type, I will try to accommodate your needs.

Loving design in many elements and mediums has always been one of my things. What a better way for all of us in the times of mass production, to return to a simpler more appreciative way of life through craft.

Please bear in mind some patterns are copyright protected.

This cape is absolutely beautiful and very very well made. My cape in a dark blue and it's so very pretty. Seller used really soft knit material. Very nicely wrapped, seller kept me updated. Fits me very nicely. Will order again.

Would rate six stars if I could! Seller accommodated request for different buttons. Could not be happier or more cozy! Love these shawls so much and will likely buy a third

About

The Long and Winding Road that led to Etsy

In the early years I was a designer and buyer for two different jewelry companies. Involved a lot of travel and living overseas for extended periods of time. Also did catalog illustration work for them.

When I married the travel was too demanding so went into the graphic design field as an art room supervisor and designer for print material.

Bored with the 9-5 routine and the ability to strike out in my own business. I started a wholesale floral business which led to doing trade shows in such markets as the Atlanta Merchandise Mart, Denver Merchandise Mart and Dallas Merchandise Mart. I had accounts all over the United States in small to medium gift shops. You might be wondering the end of the story on that, well it was, Divorce.

Spent the next many years in the corporate world of Finance and Insurance.

I have always kept my hands in craft and art in one respect or another, if nothing more than for sanity sake. My Mother and Grand-mother were both into the Fiber and Fabric arts, so that is where the love for fiber and fabric started. I started crocheting, hand quilting and sewing by the age of 7 or 8. I also have an antique loom from the early 1900's that will get a work out every so often. My all consuming passion is knitting, I love to knit! I also hand make a good portion of the buttons that I use.

Pictures on process don't seem to apply, for me, at least for now. My Knitting Chair and Ottoman are not the most attractive areas of my home. Baskets of yarn and projects all around. And the yarn room is filled with tubs to store the yarn in. If I ever arrive and get a dedicated Studio Space I will take pictures.

Would Love To Knit For You !!!

    I have been in the design field for over 30 years. Didn't want to give you the exact number and give my age away. We women shouldn't have to tell after 29.

On Custom orders with custom yarn colors or types: I do invest quite a bit of time on researching different supplies and suppliers, sending pictures and emailing back and forth. Once I do the custom listing, Please purchase the listing in a reasonable time frame. On these types of orders, if, I do Not have the yarn in stock, there is a lead time additionally to the delivery date. I invest the monies to get the yarn and would appreciate a timely payment. If a project has been started and then cancelled you will only receive a partial refund.

I do require a good bit of communication on those from the start just so we minimize any slip ups.
