Weaver looking for a Knitter

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I've recently started a home business as a weaver. My main product is winter scarves and I'm looking for a knitter to knit winter hats, mittens and possibly socks to go with my scarves for sale as coordinated sets. I use only natural yarns, mostly wool and cotton and design my own patterns. Would like to find a knitter with similar interests to collaborate with or other weavers who have a home business. Let me know if you're out there. Thanks, look forward to hearing from you.

I'm not the best knitter so I can't offer to help, but I'll let the ladies in my spinning group know about this. There are some very good knitters in the group. Just one question, were are you located? I'm in SW Michigan.

Good luck in your endeavors!

I love to knit, used to have a yarn shop. Can copy most any pattern. Have done a lot of lace knitting. I am located in Florida. Ada

I'm in Central Wisconsin. Florida seems a long way away, but with e- mail and Federal Express I guess anything's possible. SW Michigan isn't so far away, at least during ferry season (Manitowoc to Ludington). Let's keep in touch via e-mail and see what we can work out. Thanks for responding!

Rose Marie-I'm a knitter from East Central Iowa. Have knitted numerous stocking hats, pairs of mittens and stockings. Would be interested if you can use me. Should be able to work something out. I have my E-mail on my daughters computer. Get to check it 2 or 3 times a week. I don't happen to have anything knitted and laying around but could send something if you care to wait for it. I'm a 64 year old grandma and have been in the knitting and crocheting nusiness for some years now. Clare

I am looking for someone to knit 2 scarves for me. I have purchased the yarn and need to have one of the scarves done for a christmas gift. I live in the NW suburbs of Chicago, but could mail the yarn to anyone who could take on this task. I don't know what the charges for something like this would be, but would love to talk to someone who has some time. Even if they just can give me a name of someone to call, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks........Janal
