About

I have a vague memory of having a yellow plastic knitting basket in my grandparent's cabin when I would've been younger than 10 years old. But I don't specifically remember learning to knit.

I'm a prairie girl through-and-through and love living in Manitoba. The long cold winters provide a lot of opportunity to knit for family and friends while my lovely husband plays video games or we're watching tv. During those long cold winters I prefer to stay inside and spend my lunch hour at work knitting these baby sweaters.

I decided to consistently knit one pattern and loved this (c) Gail Bable pattern which knits all on one needle with one continuous piece of yarn. I prefer to knit real colours gender neutral, natural colours. But I won't judge if you prefer gender specific or pastel colours and I would be happy to make a custom order…

I imagine no new parent wants to fuss with hand-wash items when the reality is baby clothes get changed more than once a day. For this reason I always use 100% acrylic, 100% washable yarn for these baby sweaters.

Thanks for visiting my shop and supporting the art and craft of knitting.
