I couldn't say more about my custom-made scarf or its creator! She was so accommodating and time-efficient. I received my scarf in about one week, made from scratch!! I also received a hand-written "thank you" note, which was such a lovely personal touch!!! I'd highly recommend this seller and all of her lovely products!

Cuddling up in this extra-large, extra-cozy scarf that I just added to the shop!
Started off the holiday with some knitting by our (makeshift) fireplace. Happy Thanksgiving!
Eco-friendly coffee sleeves for all your favorite fall pumpkin spice drinks!

Scarves and knitwear accessories made with love and sent to you from Boston, MA.

Welcome to Back Bay Knits! After making myself and my family enough scarves to last a lifetime (and fill infinite boxes), I decided to share the love with an Etsy shop. All of the money I make from Etsy goes to buying more yarn so I can support my knitting habit... Just know that by purchasing from me, you're enabling an addict! :)

My shop name comes from the Back Bay neighborhood in Boston where I live. It's beautiful, with red brick sidewalks and classic brownstones lining the streets. The best time of year to visit is in the late fall, when the leaves are just turning--which is also the start of knitwear season!

Every item in my shop is designed and handmade by me. I learned to knit by making things for friends and family, and I still get most of my inspiration by thinking of a specific person when designing my knits. So I'd love to make you something special--click the "Request Custom Order" button on the left!

Please pay close attention to the washing directions in listing descriptions and on the tags included in your order. Certain yarns (such as wool) will felt when machine washed, and some (like cotton) may shrink. When in doubt, hand wash in lukewarm water and air dry.
