Custom Crochet

The Tale of a Yarn Addict

Love this little poem!

Warming the Heart

The Tale of a Yarn Addict

I don’t need baskets,
I don’t need hooks.
I definitely don’t need more crochet books.

I don’t need patterns,
I don’t need shelves,
..Perhaps I could use some of Santa’s elves.

I’ll walk by the aisle,
I’ll just ignore,
All the great things in this lovely store.

“I’ll just walk by,”
I tell myself.
“I won’t even take anything off the shelf!”

Oh!  Look at this hook!
Did you see the color?
I know I don’t have one like that in my clutter.

The yarn is so pretty!
So much I see.
I’m absolutely sure that it’s all for me!

Fill up the basket,
Put the yarn in.
Probably next time, my conscience will win!

Entering the Marketplace

Catch us on Main Street at the Farmer's Market Friday afternoons!


And so it begins… I’ve become a member of the Pendleton Farmer’s Market.  So, for now, my custom crochet items and my husband’s custom guitar picks can be purchased in person, on Main Street, on Friday afternoons from 4:00-7:30.  As we get the ball rolling, I expect to restock my Etsy shop as well, allowing friends across the country to purchase our handmade goods online.

Wish us luck!  And if you’ve been down this road before, please share your experiences and advice!  I have a baby in tow each week, so the time spent has to be worth it.

I will start posting items I’m working on and ideas I have for crochet here.  Like or follow my blog, and you will get a sneek peak into items you might want to purchase!

I am also accepting custom orders! So, if you see something you like, but want it in a different size or a different color, just let me know and I’ll whip it up for you!

Smiles and Sunshine,
