StarKnits is a one woman show!
My name is Allena Williams. I'm married and I am a SAHM of 2 wonderful girls. I also sell Jamberry Nails. I love to make things with my hands. I've been creating things since I was little. I love to knit, crochet, bead, sew and dye. (And any combination of them)
I'm StarKnits on Ravelry too, I have free patterns available there.
Project bags, stitch markers, customized crochet hooks and more!
I love color and fabric. When I walk into a fabric store I go a little crazy. I've always loved making things with my hands. What started out as a hobby has evolved into my Etsy store. I'm slowly making this my job.
But lets go back to the beginning. It started one Christmas season when I wanted to give my knitting students a useful gift and not go broke. I went into my bead collection and made some fun, fancy and dangle stitch markers that I affectionately called Bling. (because every crafter should Bling up their work in progress) I gave my students these blings and they LOVED them. I was asked to consign a few to the local yarn store. Then in an attempt to keep my yarn off the floor I came up with the yarnlet bag. Those too, I was asked to consign at the store. Shortly after I started making a portable project bags because I like to have a project with me at all times. By then I was hooked and decided to list a few bags and bling on Etsy.
5 years ago I started really working seriously to make this hobby into a job.
I have since started to vend at fiber festivals and craft shows and really love it. I'm constantly working on new bag designs and falling in love with new fabrics. The bright colors and cute characters always get me.
I think everyone needs a little color and fun in their life. I get mine through my crafting and I can share that with you through my shop.
