Plays With String Knitwear commissions (including sweaters!)

A gallery of my most recent work can be found here: http://playswithstring.deviantart.com/

My "works in progress" blog is here: http://playswithstring.tumblr.com/

I've been knitting for about a decade now. I have a lot of experience making knitted clothing and I've got a pretty wide set of skills including cables, stripes, intarsia, fair isle, and double-sided knitting. I adore colorwork. I can make scarves, hats, cowls, vests, mittens/gloves, shawls, socks, sweaters and more.

I am open to using a variety of fibers in a variety of weights. I'm no stranger to fine yarn and tiny needles. I'd be more than happy to talk about what would be appropriate for your project and hear your ideas. Some fibers require more care than others and are not machine washable. For those who are on a tighter budget or need something machine washable, I don't mind knitting with acrylic at all. Hopefully we can find a yarn that is both soft, comfy, durable, and not wallet-breaking

I am not allergic to any fiber so I can take all possible allergies into consideration. All work will be done in my smoke-free, pet-free house.

Please visit my commission page to see my policies and schedule.

I look forward to working with you.

Because the subject has come up, I just want to talk about school uniform vests in case anyone else out there was thinking about it.

It is not a problem to make to make a school uniform vest. But before you contact me about it, I encourage you to check out the Land's End online store and look at their vests. They have a cream colored one that resembles what you see in most high school anime and it costs considerably less than anything I can make for you.

You are much better off asking me for a vest if you need it in an uncommon size or in uncommon colors. I'm plus sized. I understand how frustrating it can be to find that vital sweater in florescent orange that also fits.

However the closer you want it to resemble something store bought, the more expensive it will be. At a certain point the yarn is so thin, I have to knit it by hand.
