I have finally opened up an Etsy shop. It's something I have wanted to do for awhile, but I kept coming up with "reasons" {AKA excuses} not to. It's called Gortree Road Creations, and right now it only has three items listed. 

You may be wondering, "Where did you get the name?" Gortree Road was the road my grandparents lived on in Northern Ireland. Here's a small piece of trivia: Gortree means "the field of the gallows." We have no clue why it's called that.

My Granny would send us hand knit and machine knit sweaters that she made for birthdays and Christmases. The summers I would spend in Northern Ireland were often spent picking up knitting needles again and reminding myself how to knit. Never mind the fact that it would often be 2+ years since I had previously knit. Because of this, I originally thought to name myself "Gortree Road Knits", but I did not want to limit myself if I decided to add more products.

For this giveaway, I will be giving away a pair of newborn Santa Claus hand knit wool longies. They are already lanolized and ready to put on a baby. Giveaway is OVER. 



Winner: Samantha Y.
