Custom Crochet goods
I would love to crochet a special item for you! From mittens, scarfs and hats to afghans, trivets, and home decor. A typical baby-blanket, perfect for baby shower, baptism or blessing gifts, takes me roughly 2-4 hours depending on the pattern (10-20 simbi). Give me a product (blanket, mittens, etc.), a color scheme, and desicrbe the recipient (4yr old nephew, etc.), and I'll come up with something wonderful and unique for you! Alternately, if you have a specific pattern/design/etc. just let me know and I am happy to make that for you as well.
I will work with you every step of the way through your project, ensuring that you are happy with the yarn choice, design, and finished project.
Prior to beginning a project I will provide you with a time estimate, if we get into the project and it will take more time, I will work with you on further exchanges if necessary.
If you're interested in a product that isn't spcifically listed, just let me know. I love to learn and challenge myself, so I'll try anything at least once!
I love to design and play with my work as I go, so each piece is unique and personal.
Training & Qualifications
Crochet. I once thought it was becoming a lost art, but I've noticed more and more young people learning. This is an art I learned at a very young age, and it has kept me sane through many days of bedrest and confinement...
I've made baby-blankets for each of my 7 niblings, several cousins, co-workers, and friends. I designed and crochetted a Minnie Mouse dress and ears for my neice. I have made a couple of full-sized afghans, hats, scarfs, mittens, hot-pads, trivets, doilies, hot-pad covers, etc.
Availability & Preferences
I am usually available on Wednesdays and weekends.
