Tribute Tuesday with Stockannette

Shout out your tributes for Annette and her Etsy shop Stockannette



Hand knit items for the children, adults and the kitty cats in your life!

Annette has offered a 15% off coupon to my readers with coupon code: FAVERITTE

AND she is offering an item from her shop for a GIVEAWAY!!! Please see all of the details to enter below this interview.

Now let's discover Stockannette

What is the first creative memory you have?

I remember sitting beside my Grandpa while he was playing “Happy Trails to You” on the organ, and he let me hit the sound effect button that made horse-hoof-like clip-clop noises (he also let me clip-clop on “It’s a Small World” and “My Marie,” too).

What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?

People saying, “You should SELL these!” or asking, “Where can I buy your knits?”

How did you come up with your shop name?

There is a stitch in knitting called "stockinette" (it’s the one that looks like tiny Vs). Since my name is Annette and I knit every day, Stockannette became the name of my Etsy shop!



Describe what creations you have in your shop? My original designs, including a pumpkin hat (for kids and grown-ups!), baby pom pom hats, scarves, and most recently, cat toys.

What inspires you?

There’s nothing quite like seeing someone smile when they put on something I made. Every time we get those cards with family photos on them and I spot someone wearing one of my creations, it brings me joy!

What do you listen to or watch while creating?

The Walking Dead, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Project Runway, John Hughes movies. I love rockabilly and 80s music.

Please share a favorite recipe

Chicken baseballs
3T light cream cheese (softened)
2 tsp. light butter (melted)
4T chopped onion
2T skim milk
a dash of salt and pepper
2 cups cooked cubed chicken
1 tube reduced-fat refrigerator crescent rolls

Combine top 5 ingredients.
Pour over chicken & stir.
Open crescent rolls - make 4 squares (by smushing the diagonal lines together).
Put 1/4 of chicken mixture in the middle of each square. Draw opposite corners together and press to seal ‘seams,’ making into a ball shape.
Bake 20 min at 350○. Makes four (each is 4 Weight Watchers Points, FYI).
