Knit With Me Sew With Me - January 30, 2023

Why Buy Handmade? I have been asked on lots of occasions why I do what I do. The biggest reason is because I love it, and it’s my passion. Nothing makes me happier than creating a product from scratch, either using a pattern or designing one myself. Below is the best explanation I have come across.
When buying from a hand maker, you’re buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren’t buying a thing, you’re buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone’s life. Most importantly, you’re buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about.
Another Beautiful Special Order - This is the first time I created a matching hat to go along with the blanket. This particular set was made for a new little one who made her arrival last week. The buttons on the pink hat are white and grey, so all three blanket colors are pulled in. Sheer perfection! Check out other special order baby blankets.
Knit Me Sew Me in the Marketplace - One of the things I love is seeing folks wearing and enjoying Knit Me Sew Me’s products. Rita is wearing her Marled Mocha Knitty head wrap. This is so stylish and will keep your ears nice and toasty, especially during the winter months. You can also wear it as a cowl to keep your neck warm. The Knittys are available in an array of colors, so you’ll definitely have lots to choose from.
How I'm Made - Many of you followed Lucky Ducky on his trip to Europe last summer. Ever wonder how he’s made? Now you’ll know! Check out video below.
World Cancer Day - World Cancer Day is Saturday, February 4th. For those of you who have lost family members, friends, and/or co-workers, to cancer, my heart goes out to you. Cancer has claimed almost everyone on my mom's side of the family, so I'm acutely aware of how horrible this disease is. Research is the key, and tremendous breakthroughs have been made; however, the fight goes on and will continue until cancer is eradicated from the world. Below is a photo (left to right) of my Aunt Phyllis, my Uncle Neil, and my mom, Elaine, who all died from cancer.
Until next time!
