Custom Items

I always tell people, if they want something that is knit, crochet, sewn or quilted, just let me know.

Here's a bit more of what I mean by that.

Most of the time, the items listed in my store are completely finished and ready to be shipped. Since my home is very small, and many things take a lot of time, it means that I have certain limits to what I can make ahead of time.

Anything I sell on my site, I can make in different colors or materials just by asking.  When you inquire about it, I will give an estimate on how long it will take. That time frame includes not just the time to craft the item, but also the time it will take for the supplies to be delivered, if I have to order them.

I love to make clothing items. I seldom have them listed for a simple reason - too many sizes! If I make a sweater to be sold, I have to pick a size, color and material, and there are many sizes, colors and materials to choose from. Unless I want to spend hundreds of hours making and storing all the possible combinations, I cannot make things like sweaters in advance.

That being said, I may, in the near future, craft a few items, use drop down menus for size, etc, and make them only when they are ordered.  If I do so, it would mean that there would be at least a 2-week wait before it could be shipped.

The point of all this is, never be afraid to email me asking for something different.

For example, if you read this blog regularly, you know that I recently made several sets of stitch markers. Someone made a comment about one set that they would make pretty earrings. The result - I made her some earrings.

It can be just that simple.

I recently became a seller for ICE/KUKA yarns. The company is in Turkey. I have been buying their yarn for my own use for a while now, and I absolutely love it! The company caught my attention when I was searching for baby yarn in colors other than the standard pastels. ICE yarn has a very wide variety of colors of baby yarn, including primary colors, and the illusive black.

Currently, I carry 6 different baby yarns:

And 8 yarns of different thickness and fibers:


If you are looking for a particular type of yarn, please let me know. I have access to over 4000 different yarns, and may have just what you are looking for.

New Items

I added a couple of new items to the store today.

First up are some hair scrunchies;
Besides just being prettier than a plain hair band, these are easier on the hair. The yarn clings to the hair, meaning that you do not have to wrap the band nearly as tightly, reducing both damage to the hair, and less pressure on the scalp.

Currently, I am selling a set of 3 - one each in black, white and red. Of course, other colors are available upon request.

Also listed today are sets of three kitchen scrubbers;
These scrubbers are roughly the same size as SOS pads. They work well on most kitchen pots and pans, from Teflon coated items to cast iron.

I have 7 different colors listed. Of course, different color combos can easily be made upon request, in line with the black & white striped ones as seen in the picture.
