My name is Andrea, I live in Batesville, Indiana.
I was born and raised in Lima-Peru.
I love to knit and create different things like jewelry, cards, you name it. I design scarves, ponchos, shawls, baby clothing etc. In general I handknit however sometimes I used a knitting machine.
I was a knitting machine trainer. I did all my clothing, including dresses, jacquets, sweaters, pants, baby clothing, and more. When I got married (21 years ago) and came to the USA, I did not bring my knitting machine with me (big mistake); after several years working as a Call Center Supervisor, I thought I could buy a knitting machine to do stuff for me and my husband, and have a small busniness. I started to research in my city for places to buy one, I found out in the States the knitting machines are very expensive, more than US $1,000.00 dollars, depending on the brand, and very difficult to get one in my own city, checking the internet I got a seller 35 miles from my city, and I bought the knitting machine from her.
First of all, I wanted to start making scarves, but the end product was not what I was expecting ...because I did not know were to find yarn in my city; I again started searching the internet for places, brands,and..I discovered a new world...I fall in love with yarn that I could not use in my knitting machine,the other option was to use the needles and crochet again....I design scarves, shawls, ponchos, baby clothing, scarfette using beautiful yarns combining differents types of textures, that is soft to the skin, light, comfortable, elegant and breath taking.
My goal is reached when you are happy with the product you chose and tell me people say... ."WHERE DID YOU GET THAT? IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!".
