$30 Gift Cert. for Tracey Knits Giveaway

AND THE WINNER IS:
#22
TRACY!
CONGRATULATIONS!!

Many years ago my Grandmother tried to teach me know to knit. I just couldn't get the hang of it. The yarn on the needles was usually so tight, I could hardly get it off, and my scarves where never nice and straight. There is no way I would have been able to do any of the wonderful creations like those in Tracey Knits. What a really talented woman!

*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Tracey Rediker and I have always been an artist. I was born and raised in New York City where my family indulged my creative side with classes and trips to museums. I currently have two jobs; number one being mother to 2 young children, the other being my online shops. i do both from the comfort of my home, now located on the Jersey Shore. i opened my first etsy shop several years ago to sell my fine art paintings, photography and illustrations. I opened my second a little more then a year ago exclusively to sell my hand-knit merchandise.

*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
I love knitting but it can be quite an expensive hobby. Several years ago i began doing projects for people around the holidays who did not have time to do it themselves. i wanted a name for my shop that clearly stated what I do, Tracey Knits just had the right ring to it.

*What or who inspires you?

I get most of my inspiration from my family. The golf club covers where first made as a gift for my Mother in Law; the football helmet was made for my son. i am just starting to include items that I have designed for myself.

*What are 5 things you want people to think when they see your product?
  • I have never seen anything like that before.
  • I have to have that.
  • I know someone who would love that.
  • What a great idea
  • I wish I had thought to do that

*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
It is hard for me to pass up sock yarn. I love knitting them, though there are none listed in my shop. My preference is handspun or handdyed wool, but I have even bought red heart if I liked the colorway.

*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I have 2 kids that take up most of my free time, so a lot of my non-artistic activities involve amusement parks and chores. I am usually carrying along some knitting project with me on outings and pick up the needles whenever I get a free moment. i have a few guilty pleasures that i indulge myself in, mostly of the TV variety, including Project Runway, Ru-Paul’s Drag Race, America’s Next Top Model and Work of Art.

*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
The golf club covers are definitely my favorite item. The basic design can transform itself into so many things. Other then the football and baseball players I make the most of, I have done such diverse designs as teddy bears to military tanks. The possibilities are limitless!

*Are there other places on the net we can find you?
