"It always seems impossible until it's done." ~Nelson Mandela

Hi, it's nice to meet you!  I'm Carolyn, owner and maker of C's Beanies.  In the fall of 2013 I began knitting dishcloths to give to family members for Christmas.  It was my way of carrying on Mom's tradition.  Over the years, knitting remained a behind the scenes hobby consisting of hats, neck warmers and baby blankets.

Fast forward eight years, kids grown, a pandemic, pottery classes cancelled, I found myself walking in circles (or should I say sitting in circles) and scrolling through Instagram!  I kept "oohing" and "aahing" all these beautiful beanies people were posting.  Then one day a little voice in my head spoke up and said, "I can do that."  So, I did!

I began searching patterns and yarn and pompoms!  "Lions and tigers and bears oh my!"  When I finished my first beanie I posted it on Instagram (gotta love IG!).  Really, I just wanted to share with my family.  But then I received a message asking "was I selling this hat!?"  Well, I have to say I was elated!  With each beanie sold, the voice got louder, moving me forward!

Thank you for joining me on this journey!  Hopefully, you will find something that you like and will enjoy wearing as much as I have enjoyed making it!

Keeping You Warm & Smiling!
Carolyn
