My Journey

In 2012, a young man asked me to replicate the scarf in the videogame, Journey. Little did I know what a journey he was about to start for me. On June 29, 2012, Game Informer Magazine published a link and story to my etsy shop,, and my life changed. I copyrighted the crochet pattern and started a custom order list, that turned into a Notification List, another Custom Order List, a second Notification List and on February 23, 2013 we will hold our first outright sale of these scarves. Yes, they look like simple double crochet scarves, but the trick is in switching the colors. My son warned me about the popularity and the unique combination of crochet and the gaming world. I like promoting this particular game - it's peaceful and beautiful. The music is gorgeous. One of my customers is a violinist who just finished a video of the music wearing one of my scarves. Now, isn't that something!? Looking forward to the sale and can't believe my good fortune. All the folks I've "met" through this have been so nice and appreciative (and patient - these scarves are handmade and they take time!). So thanks to all who have been interested in my Journey Inspired Scarves. Just wait till you see what we have planned!
