Lindsay Baker's Profile

About

I learned to knit in 2005 when my second born was about a year old. I coveted the hand knit pants that people were using over cloth diapers. I wanted a pair so bad, but couldn't convince my husband to allow me to spend $100 on them. And yes, in 2005, that is what longies were going for!

Naturally, I had to learn to knit so I could put adorable pants on my baby. Being a hustler by nature, I soon began selling my own baby pants. In 2005 there were approximately 3 indie-dyers on the internet. They had huge waiting lists, so I learned to dye my own yarn. The rest, as they say, is history!

Knitting remains my evening meditation. It is how I wind down each day, and on some days it's what I do most of the day! I'm eternally grateful my sweet baby girl inspired me to learn how to knit.
