FO-Madelaine dress

Sort of a cheat, since the dress hasn't been blocked and the tie w/ pompoms hasn't been added, but the knitting is done, so It's a FO.


miles and miles of lace repeats

picot edge-my first crochet anything

A while back, my friend Sharyn passed my email on to a woman who was looking for some custom handknits. At the time, I thought they were for her personally. All I knew was that she wanted some baby items.
After a few conversations with her, I came to learn that she is the owner of a chic online baby boutique called the Baby Gardner, and was looking to add a knitter into her fold. Could I knit some vintage inspired baby items to add to her shop?
We settled on a few patterns, and I have been busy knitting ever since.
The goal is to have several different types of things knit; she will add them to the store. When a customer orders one of my items, I will then knit it.
It's a fun way to jump out of my comfort zone (vintage? baby?), and hopefully get my stuff out there a little bit. I would love to grow my etsy shop into something really cool!
