Hump-Day Mini-Featurette

Bio for TheHighPlainsKnitter

"I've been knitting since I was nine years old. A babysitter taught me how to knit and purl. From then on I have had a passion for knitting, though its been interrupted for child rearing and the like. For years I was a dj at local radio stations, and for a few years I was a developmental therapist. I took time out to homeschool our children, and am now retired. Now, I have lots of time to knit. I take pleasure in knitting and comfort in Christ. ~ I am a member of Etsy Knitters Street team, Etsy Texas Crafters, and AWEteam. I put a lot of time and care into my knitting, crocheting and shop. My accessories are made of quality yarns and original designs. Here is a message one enthusiastic customer sent me after an event in which she had pinned one of my flowers to her wrist purse. "I got a lot of compliments on the purse, but it wasn't the purse.....it was your flower!!! That's what I've learned about these flowers. You stick them on something and it totally changes everything. So whimsical, I love it." Another said "I can't believe you made these so wonderful, just from a description in my head. I can't believe you nailed it the way you did." Dianne also says: "My wrist cuffs are light, airy, and I have headbands and scarves that match them. Any of my flowers, or knitting patterns can be made into brooches, and I love custom orders for them."







And, btw, the two items pictured above are going to be my birthday gift to a very nice friend who happens to share the same birthday with me! For more items from this gifted and talented knitter see her etsy mini on the right, and visit her store. Christmas is coming soon!
