Lovingly hand-knit

I began designing sweaters and blankets and hats for my baby girl, and for my friends' babies, and I've found that I love designing a sweater specific to a person. Even the tiniest baby has a personality, and they're so much fun to knit for. Maile's sweater is feminine and ladylike, with just enough of an edge to keep you guessing. Keaton is a rambunctious fellow who will launch himself off the couch at you, so his sweater needed to give him freedom of movement while being a little bit funky.

And so on, until there are more sweaters and hats to knit than I can possibly keep up with!
