This yarn was exactly what I had been looking for. It shipped and arrived very quickly, and the seller was amazing to work with! I would definitely recommend purchasing from this shop!
Hand Knit Treasures!
My good friend, Katie (owner of Pretty Sneaky and Pretty Sneaky Home), taught me to knit on several occasions. I never made more than a little swatch and called it a success. Later, I dabbled a bit in stamping, and in 2005, I decided to pick up a new craft. I debated what craft to learn, checked out many how-to books, but never decided what exactly I wanted to do.
By chance, I visited a friend one evening as she was knitting a pair of socks. She gave me a lesson and sent me home with yarn and needles. My crafting decision now made, I threw myself into learning how to knit. Although my first scarf left much to be desired, I was hooked. I had always enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, and knitting felt like assembling a puzzle of a different kind.
I spent several years knitting for fun before opening Yard By Yard Knits in 2009. While scarves and pet clothing may not seem like the most natural combination, I love to knit both! I like exploring different textures in my scarves. And even though I don't have a dog, I just have so much fun making dog sweaters. One woman bought a small sweater for her hairless cat, so maybe there's hope yet for my kitty!

In 2005, I decided I wanted to learn a craft. By chance, I visited a friend one evening as she was knitting socks. She gave me a lesson, sent me home with instructions to practice, and a business was born!
