About

I believe I was born crafting, which is not surprising considering my gene pool. Both my grandparents were artists, my mom could draw, sew or knit anything you asked her to & my dad practically made everything he owned, including clothes, weaponry & electronics. I did not inherit the ability to draw or build electronics. I did, however, inherit the love all fiber related crafts. Today, I occasionally take breaks from my obsessive knitting to cross stitch, quilt, scrapbook or sew beads onto something. But mostly, I knit.

My Etsy shop, Jeannie Gray Knits, came about mainly due to my love of knitting shawls. Once my personal stash of hand knit shawls outgrew my closet, I had to admit to myself it was time to find an outlet for them. A friend mentioned Etsy and the rest is history. 

Today, depending on the weather, you can find me knitting on the beach, the porch, or beside the fire. Occasionally, you may find me cursing my camera. Apparently, I didn't inherit the skilled photographer gene either. You can also find me on Facebook & Twitter. Drop in sometime and say hello. I did inherit the gift of gab & would love to chat a while.
