Announcement   º º º º º º SHOP UPDATE! º º º º º º
Part 1 and 2 of the new knitwear renovation has hit the shop!

Part 1: The Classics Collection

The cozy accessories that go with everything.
The designs you invest in.
The pieces that become your favorite, well loved, and worn over and over.
The knits you always reach for over all the others time and time again.
The Classics.

And so I present to you, eight timeless pieces carefully selected from my past knitwear collections.
Each simple and minimal in their design, yet versatile in that they're able to be knit in one of 5 neutral colors so as to readily go with anything you own.

You can read more about the new collection as well as checkout the lookbook here: www.agirlnamedleney.com/journal/the-classics-collection

Part 2: One-Of-A-Kind

These pieces are inspired by...
the places i’ve been,
the people i’ve met,
the words i’ve read,
the images i’ve created.

All of which are unique, to themselves, their own, one-of-a-kind.
Much like you are.
I believe that your clothing, what you wear, says a lot about you.
It adds to your story, your make-up, who you are as an individual.

And so, shouldn’t those pieces in and of themselves hold a story all their own?
I think so.
That’s why my knitwear is one-of-a-kind.
Each design is a piece of art.
Each piece tells a story.
Of a person. A place. An experience. An idea.
When you own one of these pieces you are the only one to own it.
Aside from me, the creator, you hold it’s story.
You are now the caretaker of it’s story.
And it, in turn, becomes a part of yours.
The Stories The Things We Own Tell.
I think they're terribly important, though often overlooked.
I find that the things we invest in are the things we cherish and value most. Which in turn speaks to what kind of individual we are. What we put stock in. Who we want to be.

Leney was amazing to work with! She answered all my questions and responded so quickly every time another one came up. My sweater is beautiful. Leney is incredibly talented. If you check out her blog you can see that she's doing a lot of really cool and inspiring stuff. It feels really good to support someone's dreams and then to also get a beautiful piece of clothing out of the deal.

I have admired all of the pretty knits in this shop for awhile. I had a hard time deciding, so Leney was nice enough to work with me on what I wanted. I was so excited to receive my order. It is obviously made with care, and I could not be happier with how it turned out! I have already gotten so many compliments, and I'm just sorry I didn't order it sooner. I will definitely be making another purchase.

I love my special order, uniquely designed piece! It is so cozy and soft and such a lovely color. The craftsmanship is beautiful, and it is just what I was expecting. Leney was patient with my questions and a joy to work with. I received it sooner than I expected too. Thank you!!

About

The Knitting Queen

I remember being eight years old, sitting on a taupe-colored couch, clutching pencil-sized, plastic, red knitting needles and wrapping multi-colored purple and green yarn (which, at the time, I thought was the most beautiful and ingenious color combination ever) around them. My grandmother was teaching me how to knit.

And so the obsession began.

My name is Leney, and I work full time as a knitwear designer and creator in Richmond Virginia. I've been artsy ever since I was a little girl, and I can't remember a time when I wasn't creating in some way shape or forum. (And I'm talkin' handmade vests out of paper grocery bags decorated with pom poms, glitter, and glue. And Caprisun purses. Oh and belts made from pop tabs. Yep. I was an extremely resourceful and stylish kid).

Additionally, I'm a photographer! Taking photos is another one of my many passions. Especially when I can couple it with traveling. You can read more about that on my website: www.agirlnamedleney.com

In short, creating is what I do, whether it's with yarn and knitting needles or with a camera capturing images. I live and breathe it every day, and through it I strive to give glory to my Creator, because He's the one who gave me these talents and abilities to begin with.


Thanks for stopping by.
Shoot me an email.
I also love new friends.

P.s. The Knitting Queen?
It's something a friend called me once, and it's monicker that's just sort of just stuck ever since.
Even Siri calls me that. So it's legit.
