My shop is Crow Shea

Hey everyone!

My shop is Crow Shea!

It started out by me learning to crochet so I could make my kids hats for the winter. THEN people noticed them and asked me to make them for their kids, and then strangers asked where my hats came from and I got a few orders that way! So I started my facebook page!

My Facebook Shop is http://www.facebook.com/crowshea
And My webpage (which just links to my …

I own MoonShadow Threads which isn't really around anymore... Well it is, but I am taking an extended break from it due to personal issues. BUT I plan on getting it back up and running soon. I did some crochet but I am mostly known for my Clay covered crochet hooks. You've probably seen them on Youtube's Bobwilson123 & Yolanda's crochet channels. One of my goals this winter is to become …

    I LoVe Staci at Very Pink !!
    I am a continental knitter myself, but she does cover the technique. I have made 2 of her Log Cabin afghans. I also like Liat Gat at Knit Freedom. She embraces the magic loop method of knitting, of which I totally  dig!

    I love your hoodie! Such nice work!

    Thank you. I did finish the sweater and posted it in FB a bit ago, so I won't bother re-posting here. I'm a bit proud of it even though there were some mistakes. Not bad for a beginner though, I think. Cool

    Staci rocks! And if you agree I will definitely have to check out your other suggestion.

    Hello Hello everyone!! I finally made it over to the forums  Very Happy  It's been forever since I have been a part of a forum group, lol. Can't wait to get back into the swing of it. I have recently been taking more orders for knitting than crochet.....which I love to knit and the look, but as many of you have mentioned already, it just takes so much longer, lol. Right now I'm testing a knitted slouch hat....can't wait to see how it turns out.....especially since I love the colorway I'm working with Laughing

    I have these Fingerless Gloves on my to-do list. They are simple and pretty, and it is mentioned that they are great for beginners knitting in the round.

    I wish I had more orders. I'm only just beginning to sell my items. My grandmother, who taught me to crochet, suggested it. Welcome Kendall.

    I've not tried loom knitting but I think it might be something my oldest could pick up. She did great with the loom and stretchy bands to make potholders with. I'm thinking it's kinda along the same line.... Is it?

    Hi Kendall! I would love to see the hat you're testing. Knit hats are my favorite, but I make a lot of crochet hats, because it is faster. Smile

    Welcome Kendall...Looming is fun too, and kids seem to catch on rather quickly and get excited when they see what they can all make. The potholder looms with the stretchy loops are more of a weaving loom than a knitting loom. They are fun to weave yarn onto also, and sew the squares together.

    I get orders for both knit and crocheted items, and love them equally. I switch off when I have done one or the other too long and need a switch up or when something on Pinterest catches my eye. Sometimes I wish I didn't do both, and got real good at just one...either way, I get to play with yarn, and that is sometimes my main motivation.:-)
