About

Knitting Too Many Things for One Person to Use

The Anchovy Knits journey began in 2004 when my mother-in-law showed me the door that was knitting. The first few years went alright with a few small designs from my own head, plenty of fuzzy bling yarn, plenty of loathing of fuzzy bling yarn, and many, many scarves made with fat needles.

And then a fateful Wednesday evening, a few months after my little man was born, I came across a group of women hanging out at Borders. They were all knitting. Ignoring my social anxiety, I approached them and that led to the community that is knitting and the online mecca Ravelry.

A couple years after that and everyone, simply everyone, was learning how to spin and buying spinning wheels. I gave into peer pressure and bought my first wheel, a Kromski Sonata, and named her Yolanda. After a Camp Pluckyfluff class, as I delved into art yarn, Yolanda could no long meet my needs, plus she killed my back. In 2013 Echo, a Lendrum (with bulky fly wheel and bobbin) joined the troupe.

Christmas 2013 brought an Ashford 16" rigid heddle loom.

And there was a period when I taught myself basic crochet because of amigurumi critters. And also how to get by with a drop spindle.

My training is complete. Now I am the master.

So after all that, I have learned that I prefer smaller projects or scarves and handspun, imperfect yarn. I like my knitting to have personality and originality. I do what I want! Playing with textures, fibers, colors, sparkly bits, blobby bits, and never ever Fun Fur. Never again.

    I am focusing more on sharing my creative adventures and seeing where that takes me. Anchovy Knits is where it all began because I did a lot of knitting for several years. Color and texture work on fat needles, that's my preferred style.

Shop policies

Some things to keep in mind when shopping the Anchovy Knits:

Everything, unless specified otherwise, is: HAND WASH ONLY. LAY FLAT TO DRY. Please follow these instructions if the item description doesn't mention cleaning.

People with sensitive skin and/or allergies, please pay close attention to the fiber content of your item of interest. Fiber content varies from item to item: animal (e.g. wool, mohair, alpaca), plant/insect (e.g. cotton, silk), synthetic (e.g. acrylic, polyester), any combination of the three.

There will be the occasional knitted thing made from a mystery yarn--obtained at yarn swaps, unlabeled, whatever scenario. I make my best guess as to the fiber content, but please be aware my best guess might not be one hundred percent accurate.
