I have been knitting since 1954 when I was 5 years old and I love it. It's therapeutic, creative, meditative, rewarding, thoroughly enjoyable, portable.... I have made more garments than I care to remember, but when I knitted one of these dolls for my grand daughter I felt I had hit on a winner. After selling several privately I decided to go global. Then I started to make the bears and they have been an equal success for children old and young. All the items you see in my shop are made and ready to go, but If you would like to order a doll or a bear in a different colour variation please contact me.Each of my items is unique as they are all individually made by hand, stitch by stitch, and so are all slightly different from each other. All gorgeous!
