Lorna Watt likes to knit fast and crochet creatively. And she uses both of these talents for good. For every item she sells, she donates a tree to The Nature Conservancy. She’s like a superhero with an Esty shop – saving the planet one design at a time. Read more
Susan Barstein has always liked cotton tape yarns, and Berroco Karma is no exception. “I fell in love,” Susan says. She immediately knew she wanted to use it to knit a fun, open garment to display at the LYS where she works, In The Making.
Knitting has been an important part of Rachel Horsting’s life since she was a little girl. Rachel’s mother taught her the basics when she was four and by the time she finished college, Rachel was coming up with her own designs. She continued knitting while she pursuing her master’s degree, working as a high school teacher and raising a family. She even continued knitting as her family traveled abroad for her husband’s research. Read more
