I met Christine early in my Instagram journey, and I love her beautiful handiwork. She's an inspiration - not only as a creative, but one who cares deeply about world issues.

I have an etsy shop called @queensknits I sell my handknit scarves, turban earwarmers, coffee cup cozies and hair accessories.
Like my shop name says, I live in Queens, and it's my biggest inspiration. 💕
I was born and raised here, and though I have travelled quite a bit, this is still my favorite place on Earth. Since opening my shop, I've connected with lots of local entrepreneurs from boutique owners to jewelry makers, bakers, photographers, and more. My conversations and friendships with these creative folks inspire me to take risks and continue making. 💕
I'm also inspired by the landscape of Queens. Our street art, our bridges, our parks, skylines, sunsets, trains and of course the diverse ethnic makeup of the people here. I love making my subway line coffee cup cozies inspired by the different train lines in the neighborhood because we all have special connections to our train line. Ask any New Yorker for a crazy train story and you'll see what I mean. 💕
What I enjoy most about creating is when people like my creations enough to post pictures of themselves in them. It's just such a great feeling, words fail me in trying to describe it. 💕
I love that people feel beautiful in them, but I especially love when people say that they were warm on a cold day because of something I made. I especially love when people tell me how much their children love their scarves, because us moms know sometimes kids don’t want to bundle up and it’s awesome that they love mine enough to wear them happily! 💕
