WEST Summer Promotion: Smash Knits
Today we look at Smash Knits.
Smash Knits specializes in scrumptious handcrafted accessories for you & yours.
From the Smash Knits profile:
Born and raised on the Canadian Prairies, I became accustomed to bitter cold winters at a very young age. Several years ago I dusted off my childood knitting needles, and my Mum's old crochet hooks, and put to use the skills I was lucky enough to learn from both of my Grandmas as a young girl. I began making winter gifts for friends and family, in an attempt to keep loved ones warm - without forsaking fun and fashion - two of my favorite things!
Knitting soon led me to renew my junior high love affair with my Mum's trusty Kenmore sewing machine, and I have never looked back! The Kenmore has since moved on to greener pastures and now I'm working on my aunt's industrial Viking.
Nothing escapes my creative interest, and I have at least 900 pins on Pinterest waiting to be attacked. I try to focus on creating eco-friendly accessories from renewable or recycled sources as frequently as possible, and apply that attitude to all facets of my life.
Smash Knits evolved as a result of an overflowing amount of items I have created in need of a home. My pieces are influenced by my love of anything vintage, everything feminine, and bright, bold colors that POP! I like creating pieces that pay homage to days gone by, but are still functional and appealing in today's fashion world.
I love every and all crafts; sewing, scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, painting, furniture re-upholstering, as long as it's creating then it's right up my alley! Pottery is next on my hit list.
In my spare moments, I moonlight as a grammar nerd, bookworm, music junky, volleyball addict, and hot yoga fiend.
Check out this item:
