It all started in June of 2007.  I was preparing to go to the beach at Kalaloch on the coast and stay in a cabin with friends for July 4th.  Figuring there’d be some downtime at the cabin, I went to the craft store to find a new craft project to start.  For months, I had been stalking this Provo CraftKnifty Knitter” knitting loom set, waiting for it to go on sale for 40% off or for it to be off sale so I could use my coupon.  Finally, it was the right price and I bought it!

The instructions were easy to figure out, and it was helpful to find out my girl friend Mel had a Knifty Knitter at home and knew how to use it.  She showed me a few tips that really helped make knitting on a loom simple and fun.  I whipped out a scarf and a hat that weekend and I was hooked!  No pun intended.

Since then, I have purchased several other Knifty Knitter looms in various sizes.  I’ve created dozens of hats, scarves, a lap blanket, and a stuffed spider.  Every time I travel, I take a knitting loom with me on the plane.  It’s fun to have a project to work on that doesn’t take a lot of concentration or brain power.  I couldn’t fit all my photos into this collage, but this should give you an idea of the kind of things I knit:

If I’ve knitted a creation for you, how’s it holding up?  If you’d like me to knit something for you (wrong season, I know!), please let me know and I may just surprise you!   

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
