Welcome to WALLABY KNITS! I am super excited as you can tell from the caps. At the end of November I finally decided (after much debate and hand-wringing) to open an Etsy shop! It's been exciting and nerve-wracking so far... I am not sure how things will turn out, but I am happy I am giving it a try. If I can knit cozy things that make other people happy, and contribute to my family's income, then I will consider it a success.
Now, for those of you who don't know me, I will do a quick intro! My name is Lauren, and I am a married 30-something mom of 2 silly kiddos. I've lived in Indiana my whole life, and I really do like it here! Having all four seasons is handy for a knitter.... every winter we are needing warm things to clothe ourselves with!

I taught myself to knit in 2005 from a "learn to knit" book/kit that was written for children. Hah! I really began to take off with my knitting after meeting a dear friend at the place I worked. She had been knitting MANY years and was able to open my eyes to all the amazing things you can do with sticks and string. I haven't stopped crafting since then! It really is a great hobby. I don't think I could watch TV without having some knitting project in my lap.... I would be too antsy!
Wallaby Knits is my new adventure... knitting for people other than my friends and family! The name is from an early nickname for my son when he was born. My little wallaby boy! Also, wallabies are just cute in general. Like mini kangaroos. Aww.
Anyway thanks for visiting and I plan on getting back to blogging about my shop adventures more in 2017! Happy New Year!
