What is a t-card?

During a family gathering a few years ago, the conversation moved to knitting – probably because I had given some knitted presents. Before long, the suggestion was made – “why doesn’t Steve make everyone a knitted card?”

As a knitter, you probably already know why not, but the challenge was there, and so for the next year everyone dutifully received a birthday card that contained knitted (or crocheted) parts. The t-card was born.

I found three main challenges: remembering to start in time for the card to arrive before the important day, my total lack of drawing ability, and finding inspiration for the topic – because each card had to be tailored to be personal to the recipient. Hopefully, the t-cards on this site will give you inspiration – but unfortunately, remembering special days is up to you!
