Featured Artist - Raspberry Crochet

Who are you? Christine Lowe

What is your Etsy Shop Name/link? RaspberryCrochet - http://raspberrycrochet.etsy.com



How did you come up with your shop name? After going through and discarding many names, I heard the song “Raspberry Beret” by Prince on the radio and that made the decision for me.

What do you create? Do you create for children or adults, women or men? I create scarves and hats for now for men, women and children. Soon, I plan on creating afghans.



Where do you find inspiration for your products? My inspiration is color and texture. I love the bulky and super bulky yarns for their “heft” and their feel. The medium weight yarns also offer lots of variety in color and patterns that encourage me to create. I see colors that I like and want to put together and eventually it becomes a scarf or a hat!

What do you love about your business? I love the fact that I can take a project anywhere.




What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?

I love the name of this shop - except that ever since I saw this blog I've been singing Prince's "Raspberry Beret" which - I loved as a kid - I even had a cabbage patch doll named Raspbery Beret. Am I dating myself now? Hahah. Love it though - great song, and great shop!
