I am a homeschool mom who loves to knit, read, and learn. I love crafting, so friends often ask me to make things for them to give as gifts.
Avid knitter for many years. Specialize in baby items and toys. Love soft yarns, especially for baby clothes. Not particularly fond of wool for babies and children, as it tends to be itchy, and babies can't let you know their uncomfortable in it. :)
I started making baby quilts when one that was given to my first child started coming apart. From there, I saw the possiblities of making quilts for babies that reflected the parents' personalities.
Finding ways to re-engineer work flow to maximize safety and efficiency and minimize waste (i.e., time, manpower, etc.) Basically, I learn the complete set of operations, then discover if they are implemented in the easiest possible way.
Hats and booties
We had a recent rash of pregnancies among our family and friends, so I was busy making hats and booties.
I started making toys after I saw a book of amigurumi. Here are some of them...The pink turtle, butterfly, octopi and pig are only about 2 inches. The blue and white turtle is about 10 inches!
The Ari Collection
My brother and sister-in-law asked me to knit some special items for a good friend's baby shower. I created a whole line of things and named the collection after the baby. I met the mom several months later and she said my items made her baby shower because they were so special.
