Cynth is the artist behind SoftToTouch, an Etsy Shop. We asked Cynth to share her story with us and here it is.

“I opened my Etsy shop Summer of 2013. I design and crochet handmade fashion accessories, such as scarves, infinity/cowl scarves, finger-less gloves, boot cuffs, clutch handbags, and summer shawls/pareos. I also crochet afghans, spa and baby washcloths, face scrubbies, loofahs, cell phone cozies, E-Reader cozies.”

When and how did you learn your art and craft?
“My godmother/aunt always crocheted and she got me started years ago. Then before she passed away she gave me several crochet pattern books which I have cherished over the years. I started back crocheting when I was pregnant and made several baby outfits and afghans. I have bombarded friends and family with afghans over the years. The last few years I started crocheting scarves and giving…

Oops, Hide the Yarn!

This is just a short note today.  I planned on a day of football and crocheting yesterday.  I received a few more orders during the week and wanted to get started on them.  Well, I had a surprise visitor today.


My son stopped by to watch some football with us and brought his cute little kitty.  I love her, but she didn’t want to spend any time with us in the family room.  She wanted to explore the upstairs.  She was immediately drawn to my son’s old room and spent most of the day there.  When we went up to look for her, she wasn’t in there any longer.  So we searched and found her….

sleeping in my room on my side of the bed!!

Well now football is done as of last night.  I was able to get back to my fall color yoga socks.  I thought I nice bright orange would do the trick.  What do you think?  Also in the middle of a few other jobs…baby afghan, three loofahs, fingerless gloves, infinity scarf and a baby mermaid tail blanket.  The fingerless gloves are from a pattern based on the character of Mrs. Fitz in the Outlander series.  I love crocheting them.

So, needless to say, my yarn is spread out all over the room!!

Who Me Blog??

I never thought I would ever “blog”.  But here I am.  I need to start adding some new interests in my life.  Since I started my Etsy shop which you can visit at:  www.softtotouch.info I have been so wrapped up in my crocheting projects.  First I needed to create some inventory.  So that took me a few months.  I started out selling slowly as my shop at that time only featured winter and cool weather fashion accessories.  So people in warm weather states and countries weren’t interested.

Over time I started to add other items, including spa loofahs and washcloths, cell phone and E-Reader cozies, purses, pareos and even barefoot sandals….gotta get those warm weather people.  Well, I caught a lot of “inquiring eyes” and my shop has been doing quite well.  So as I said, I have been consumed by my crocheting.  And now the winter weather is on it’s way as well as the Christmas season.  So I will be very busy.

But I need to save some of my day for other interests.  I intend to start back at the gym….water aerobics, treadmill, yoga and I can’t wait to try TaiChi.

I know my first blog has been pretty boring to you and I promise to liven up as I go along.  I will leave you with a few pics of my latest, most fun creations.  Let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading!!
