Happy Holidays!

I can't begin to tell you how wonderful 2008 has been to us. We are proud to have God in our lives. We have, for the most part, good health and so much to be thankful for.
I have met so many new "friends" online. Since I am actually a homebody it has been good for me to 'meet' everyone. Thanks to all of you for taking the time to email me. I truly appreciate you kindness and words of encouragment.
So to all of you out there, welcome in 2009 with the courage to begin new creative ideas and to finish what you started in 2008!

The Dark Knit: Knitting on an angle..

The Dark Knit: Knitting on an angle..

I love knitting! So much so that I custom knit sweaters, coats, leg warmers, mittens, socks and hats for people just like you. No more buying off the rack and it doesn't fit because I knit to your exact measurements. See a sweater in a magazine, I'll knit it. Want to turn heads when you walk down the street, or feel warm and cozy while looking terrific? I'll knit it.
Here's how I knit.
First, you design on the design you want.
Second, you and I decide on the yarn that you want to feel warm in. Go ahead, choose the color you want.
Third, I do the knitting to your measurements.
Fourth, you wear the sweater.
How much simplier could that be?
Contact me at and we'll discuss the sweater you've been wanting but couldn't wear!

Socks - Hand Knit for Men, Women and Children

Well the cool weather is fast approaching. Time to get my hands and joints moving. Everyone in US and Canada will decide that this is the year for a pair of warm, soft and cuddly socks. Last winter I knit 30 pairs of socks every month. It just didn't let up, first the cool weather, then hunting season, Christmas and cold, cold weather. Didn't matter whether it was a gift or shear comfort everyone was ordering the socks in the color that suited them. And best of all they fit. Fit because I had them measure their foot from back of heel to tip of toes. That's what it takes to get a pair of socks that fit.
Got the "fit" idea because I have small feet. It is hard for me to go into the store and get a pair of socks that really fit. Not any more. And best of all I can get any color I want and the type of yarn I want. Love those wool socks. Keep my feet so snuggly.
So if you want to walk on a cloud and keep warm contact me for a pair of "heavenly" socks.

I've really been knitting some beautiful sweaters for people in the US and Canada. It is exciting to see the soft, warm yarn unfold from a ball into beauty. Just to know that one day someone will wear it and receive many compliments.
The lady from Portland, Oregon wore hers to a seminar a few weeks ago. She reported that she got a lot of compliments. She must have been a real eye catcher in her warm pink alpaca with mohair pink trim. It was stunning!
Hand knitting isn't hard but time consuming. I am sure that many of the sweaters now days are machine knit. I read somewhere that they hand knit the seams so that it passes for "hand knit". Now isn't that something. Machine knit with hand knit seams. That just doesn't seem right, does it?
Well back to my knitting. Love to make people happy because Not All People Are Created Equal. Takes the full measurements of a person to make the sweater!
