Announcement   Hello and a very warm welcome!
I make luxury hand knits in classic styles.
All items in my shop have been hand knitted by myself in Stirling, Scotland.
I usually knit using vintage pattern for babies and children but can knit any style and colour on request up to the age of 5!

I strongly believe babies should be in white or pale colours for at least the first six months, at least and then pale colours. Maybe an old fashioned ideal but they grow up so quickly; babies for such a short time, why not enjoy putting them in vintage style baby Matinee Jackets Sweaters and sets.

I use pure natural materials, without acrylic or other manmade mixtures and only use high end quality yarns. They are of course more expensive but in the long run I believe they provide the best value for money.

I like to knit different styles and although I have thousands of patterns I’m always on the lookout for new vintage designs.

If you like my listings but want to knit them yourself the out of copy right patterns are available on my other Etsy shop - Vintagescot.

I am happy to dicscuss custom orders for babies and toddlers.

Another stunningly gorgeous set from the best knitter I know. Every knit stitch is perfect. The yarn is lovely and soft. Thank you.

The sweater, hat and even mittens are just fabulous. Nancy's hands produce true art, with wonderful design sensibilities. She knows her fibers, too. VERY HAPPY and so is the baby for whom this was a gift.

About

Providing high quality hand knits made with the best yarns....

I have always wanted to start a high end hand knit business even when I was jetting around the world installing and supporting banking software my knitting came too!

I knitted on planes, in airport lounges and in banks during the night when implementations were going live.

I bought yarns and buttons whereever I was, amassing a very diverse stash which will never get through if I knit 24/7.

I do all the knitting myself; I would dearly love to find local knitters, providing me with help and them with some income but good knitters like my self [or better] are hard to find.

So for now I knit what I feel like and Custom Orders as they come in.

I knit for Babies and Toddlers - no longer knitting larger sizes with a shoulder problem which is aggravated with heavier work [unfortunately].

Time and care is taken with every piece, buttons are sewn on using professional methods and will stay in place until removed at the garments end [if even then].

    Although I had a very successful career in Banking it was my ambition to sell my knitting. Whilst working London I took samples to Harrods and Fortnum & Mason, they loved them then I went to live in Russia; so shelved the idea until now!

Welcome to my shop.
I love to knit, especially for babies and toddlers.
I only use the best yarns suitable and available to complement my favourite patterns.
I believe the same care and attention goes into knitting cheaper yarns BUT the look, feel, warm and durability is not there.
My pholosophy is, why spend the same time producing a garment which will not retain it's appearance and will not end up as a family heirloom or passed on for someone else to enjoy!

Additional policies and FAQs
I am a totally honest seller.
I admit my postal chargers are a guess and may err slightly on my side BUT I DO ALWAYS refund over payments as soon as I return from the post office.
I also combine for posting unless requested otherwise and return any excess. Can't always predict packaging weight.
"There is an old Scottish saying " easier to ask forgiveness than ask permission". In this case better to refund as I would never ask for difference if I undercharged postage.

Shipping is postage only no additional charge included for packaging :)

I do not expect or wish to make money from postage only cover the actual cost.
