Finally!! We've been busy here ... not so much business-wise, but family sickness-wise! Things are getting back to normal and Litha (Summer Solstice) couldn't be a better day to jump back in! Summer is in full swing here in Texas and we're working hard at keeping cool!
Here's a cool shop called Dragon Knits for you all to check out!
Do you need some sweet summer jewelry? Or how about a super yummy knit beach bag? Dragon Knits is definitely the shop to shop. Our conversation happened a couple of weeks ago in the midst of my sick kiddo, so I'm happy to finally be sharing this great find!
Meet Emily, wife, step-mom and creator extraordinaire!
My products include knitted items (mostly accessories like scarves, hats, and gloves) and jewelry. I hope to be adding a line of sewn items just as soon as I beat my sewing machine into submission. I love the items that I create, but I try not to get attached. I love sending them off to their new homes.
When I grow up, I want to be a professional creator-of-things. I would love Dragon Knits to grow into a stable business that would replace my income as a teacher.
In tough times, I rely on my friends and family along with my fierce stubborn nature. :)
What does "Dirty Girl" mean to me? Hmmmm. I think being a Dirty Girl means doing what needs to be done, but in your own way. You may have to go to work, cook dinner, and read bedtime stories just like every other woman in the world, but leave your own, special mark on all that you do.
I'm particularly fond of my "pearl" jewelry. It reminds me of an era when things were simple and elegant. :)
Thank you so much Emily for your patience and your rockin' shop! Readers, stop by and check out all of the cool things Emily's created!
