a handmade holiday: knits & knots



i was born with a restless soul; always wanting to create things with my hands. for me, creating was a way to be closer to my Creator.

when my sweet grandmother taught me how to crochet at 16, i immediately began to create and explore the craft. i love to live on the wild side and prefer to create my own patterns. in my senior year of high school, i joined 'knitting club' and first learned to knit.

i still have the first thing i created. it is sprinkled with holes and added stitches. it was casted on and pulled off many times as tears were shed. 

but there is nothing like a finished piece. 

personally, knits warm not only my neck, but my soul. when i have the opportunity to share them with friends, i feel like i'm spreading love. i also share my gift of knitting as the sponsor of 'knitting club' at the very school where i teach English and social studies.

knits & knots is a place for me to express my creativity and engage in something that i love every part of. i hope you like them too.


in the spirit of love, i am giving away an oversized cowl of your choice.

  30. Generally most payday advance organizations charge around $20 to $30 per $100 of loan. To guarantee that there are no ambiguities, demand that your last payday credit sum is explained in dollars and pennies. This will enable you to realize what you have to pay, when your payday credit is expected. payday loans corona
