Hello there! I’m Zoe, the face behind this website who has a big old stash of yarn and a ton of passion for crafting with it.
When I was a teenager, a friend at the time teased me about being “zavvy,” as opposed to savvy, since my initials are Z-A-V. It felt completely natural to use it as part of my shop name and online presence.
As a child, I learned basic crochet skills from my grandmother. I liked it immediately and I have always appreciated those who were able to make anything by hand, particularly with yarn or thread. My interest in crochet lay dormant for over twenty years when I picked it up again in late 2013 on a whim.
In 2014, I was full steam ahead on reading and watching everything I could, buying lots of yarn, and figuring out what works and what doesn’t. My self-education is a never-ending journey.
In 2017, I picked up knitting, and continue to add skills in that realm, too.
I’ve combined my passion for making things from yarn (and writing) with my entrepreneurial nature. You can read about the projects I’m working on in the blog or see what I have for sale in my Etsy shop. Thanks for being here!
