Welcome to Designed to a Tee!
Designed to a Tee is the parent company of Knitted by a Tee and Tee’s Blog.
But who is Tee?
My real name is Robyn Fraser and I live in Belfast with my Northern Irish husband and our half American half Northern Irish son. I am actually an American who moved to the UK in 2003 after meeting my husband on the internet.
Our son was born in 2009 and I started Designed To A Tee as a graphic arts company. In 2016 I began selling my knitting through Etsy and then Conscious Crafties. At this point both of those shops are closed. You can still buy from me, but you need to contact me directly! And now I split my time between graphics, knitting, sewing, writing, housewifing (It is too a word. I just wrote it didn’t I?), mothering, learning to crochet, and I’ve just recently received a spindle and some wool and I’m going to learn how to spin. The blog has been up since I moved to Belfast, more or less, and I write about all sorts of stuff.
But why Tee?
A very long time ago (2000) my sister in law had a baby. When that baby was learning to talk she kept asking for Tee. No one could figure who she meant. Until she called me Tee directly. Figuring Aunt Robyn or Auntie Robyn was too hard for her, I just shrugged and said, okay, I’m Tee.
That baby is now 18 and graduated high school in June. She is heading off to college in just a few weeks. She’s taller than me. She is brilliant. She is an amazing ballet dancer. She talks me into buying clothes for myself. And she loves that she named me Tee so long ago and now everything I do is under Tee.
For the record, her little sister is also brilliant. Is an amazing actor and is also taller than me. That one talks me into jewellery and socks with elephants on them.
In any case (I do go on, don’t I?), Tee she named me and Tee I am.
