Shop Spotlight: Birda Knits

Meet Roberta Sheffer from Stonington, Connecticut, and her vintage traditional Scandinavian patterns in BIRDA KNITS.

"I am a retired researcher (although currently working part-time), a wife, a mother, and recently a grandmother to boy/girl twins. My daughter and her family live in So. Carolina, so I keep myself busy by knitting in my spare time.

With my new grandchildren, two great-nieces and two great-nephews as well as one on the way, it looks like I'll be busy knitting for some time!

I opened my shop in October of 2011. I had been knitting vintage-inspired Scandinavian mittens for some time, and I had given them to just about everyone I knew.

Someone suggested I open a shop on Etsy and, with my daughter's help with the branding, I started 'Birdaknits.'  I receive much enjoyment from my shop, and I have been fortunate to meet people from all over the world. I hope to do a bit more with the 'Babybirda' section of the shop in the future."
