Meet Monday with Lilee's Gram Knits

It's Meet Monday time with Teresa and her Etsy shop Lilee's Gram Knits




Such a fun shop to explore through with every knitters dreams of supplies!

Teresa is also offering a giveaway...please see the details after the interview.

Rainbow hand dyed roving wool
What is the first creative memory you have?

Making stationary for presents with my watercolors. I was a kid and i would spend my allowance on a box of envelopes and a pad of lined stationary and I would paint balloons and flowers on the corners of the paper and the envelopes and make stationary sets for people.

What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?

Hmm....I don't really recall....I am always making things and I think it was someone at the local yarn shop mentioned to me that I should try selling my stuff. I have had a store a long time, with only an few things. I have really only just started working it this year.

How did you come up with your shop name?

My Granddaughter's name is Lilee. Whenever I am knitting something, no matter the shape or color, she will ask me what I am knitting for her, she gets disappointed if the item is not for her. She is one of my most precious inspirations and I wanted to include her in my creative life too.


Fairytale Themed Stitch Markers


Describe what creations you have in your shop?

I have hand spun, hand dyed and other yarns, I have stitch markers and other things to help knitters. I also have a line of up-cycled clothing I am working on. Pretty much if it has something to do with fiber and is brightly colored I am drawn to it.

What inspires you?

Life, Color, My Family

What do you listen to or watch while creating?

I have an I pod and I love to listen to books on it. I don't even have any music on it, just books. I love fantasy and Stephen King. If I am not listening to a book, I like to have the TV on for the noise.....The show doesn't really matter, I think I just like the noise.


Wool Yarn, Sock Yarn
Please share a favorite recipe

My husband is allergic to corn. So there are many things we cannot use around my home, or eat, so I have had to learn to be very resourceful. This is probably one of my favorite recipes. And the most money saving also.







Homemade Laundry Detergent:

1 c borax
1 c washing soda
1 bar of soap (ivory or fels naptha)

First, grate your soap.
Then, combine all ingredients in your jar and shake until well mixed.
Use 1 tbs per load

It doesn't bubble up, but it does get your clothes clean and we save so much money, and Hubby doesn't break out from his allergy.
