So. What is Knitted By A Tee (KBAT)?
Well, about 2 years ago, give or take, I was complaining of my arthritic hands, as I do, online and it was suggested bamboo needles and knitting could help. And this person who I’ve never met in real life asked me for my address. A few days later, some needles and some yarn arrived in the post. And a monster was born. 😀
I actually first learned to knit years ago. My Nana, my father’s mother, was a huge knitter. She knit everywhere all the time for any reason. I don’t think my mother bought me any sweaters when I was a kid as Nana would just knit them. She was wicked fast and always eager for her next project.
When I first learned I thought it was fun but never really went any further than a scarf.
All that has changed. I now design all my own patterns and sell patterns and finished products at my Conscious Crafties Shop. (My Etsy shop is now closed for good.)
So have a look. Maybe there’s something there you fancy. Or drop me a line, I’m happy to make bespoke designs and love working with people to create something special just for them.
I also sew, crochet, do tapestry and I, just today, received a spindle and some wool in the post! So I may sell handspun and dyed yarn at some point.
What can I say? Yarn really really really loves me. And I really really really love it!
