✽ Handmade for the Holidays: Giveaway ✽

I'd like to start off our Handmade for the Holidays Gift Guide with a special giveaway of my own as a way of saying thank you to everyone who has bought a handmade item from me since I opened shop almost a year and a half ago.  


I started this shop after spending one whole summer under an apple tree learning to knit, watching my kids tend their plots in the garden, counting stars, identifying plants, insects and animals, and wondering how I could combine all the bounties of nature in with my knitting.  I decided on children’s clothing as a way to make a living for my family while staying close to the home and our way of life. I wanted clothing that they would be able to wear all day long and always be comfortable, no matter what the weather. I wanted each item to be as natural, beautiful and unique as each of my children, but practical and durable so that they could be free to roll in the grass, jump in the puddles, and snuggle up to the bonfire, without having to worry about stains or wear and tear.  


Just as my family life has grown and evolved, so has my business life.  Not only do I offer unique hand knit and upcycled clothing & accessories, but I also offer a wide array of handmade supplies for those of you who are inspired to create your own unique works of fiber art!  I'm thrilled to have found so many communities of handmade artisans online and throughout the world who share my same passion for creating sustainable, functional and unique items. My hope through these generous offerings over the next few weeks is to inspire just one more person to give up the big box stores and join in support of the families who make up the Handmade movement!  Ok.  Enough of the sappy talk... on to the free stuff!!!

  6. So generous!

    I'm still trying to decide what to make using the yarn I bought from you. I want it to be something perfect because I love the colors so much. I'm leaning toward some fingerless gloves. I've always wanted a pair, after all..
