I love putting dresses on my daughter, no matter what time of year. I mean, have you seen some of the knitted dresses available now?? So cute. And, what better way to keep those little legs warm when it gets a little chilly outside than with a pair of these:
I wanted my daughter to have a pair of legwarmers that she can wear while jumping in a pile of leaves, or while dressed up to pick out her own pumpkin. So, I designed a PDF pattern for these little leg warmers, which fit perfectly inside of boots, or over tights for an extra cozy, layered look. They feature an all-over leaf lace design and are created from a fingering weight Peruvian Highland Wool, so they are lightweight yet warm.
Due to the amount of stretch, these leg warmers can fit most sizes 12 months up to 5T. Once knitted, these leggings are a perfect three-season accessory. Pattern includes: comprehensive charts, detailed written instructions, suggestions, and color photos.
This pattern is a perfect option for any knitter who knows some intermediate techniques of knitting, such as: yo, s2kp (description included in pattern), and knitting in the round. No prior experience needed of making Leg warmers since this pattern gives detailed, step-by-step instructions.
Patterns can be purchase here on Etsy, or here on Ravelry. Will be available on our website soon.

I cannot rave enough about the “Immie Tee” and “Camilla Babe” patterns that Carrie Hoge has designed for little ones. The pullover design is practical, yet they have a simple but beautiful pattern up the front panel of the body. These patterns are easy to follow, which is why I have used them over, and over… So, I have decided to keep a few of each of the sweater (shirts) that I have made following these patterns, and I will sell the rest. First available, this mustard yellow, short-sleeved, cozy Camilla Babe:
This cozy sweater-shirt is a perfect Fall/Winter piece, and is worthy of being passed down for many generations. Since it is a pullover, it is easy for little ones to wear.
Though it is short-sleeved, it is warm and serves as a good transition piece from Summer into the cooler weather.
It features a boatneck design, a patterned panel up the front and a garter stitch around the body. It was created from the “Camilla Babe” pattern created by Carrie Hoge, and was knitted from a high-quality Quince and Co. American Wool.

Second tee is this lovely laced, lightweight-yet-warm knitted shirt. It was knitted from a bright teal Merino/Silk blend and features a lace floral pattern up the front panel of the tee. It is short-sleeved and lightweight and serves as a good transition piece from Summer into the cooler weather.
It was created from Carrie’s “Immie Tee” pattern. This tee can be purchase here!

There is a cool breeze this morning, and after a few rainy days, it’s starting to feel like Fall. So, what better time to introduce a couple of the cutest little cardigans I got the chance of knitting.
When I think of Autumn, I think of the vibrant colors–iconic of the season–and of course, cables. This cardigan has both of those attributes that are staples of Autumn clothing.
This sweater is perfect for transitioning any outfit from Summer to Fall, and is worthy of being passed down for many generations. It features a cable and bobble design up each side of the button band, and above the ribbing on the sleeve.
The 3/4 sleeve keeps little arms warm while the temperatures begin to drop. The mustard yellow hue is an iconic color for Autumn. It is perfect for little ones with sensitive skin, since it was created using a supple superwash wool.
This sweater was created using the “Mini Rock Rose Cardigan” pattern, designed by Schneckenstrick.
It is available for purchase here! Sorry, this item has been sold.
This second sweater was delicately designed and is the perfect compliment to any outfit this Fall/Winter, yet worthy of being passed down for many generations.
It features an allover lace and leaf design in a pale purple hue. It is lightweight, yet warm since it is made from 100% Peruvian Highland Wool.
This sweater was created using the “Petal” pattern, designed by Michele Wang. The sweater is available for purchase here!
More sweaters, patterns, and handmade goodies will be available soon, so keep an eye out!

I hadn’t knitted a sweater before because I love the instant gratification that comes in knitting hats, gloves, or scarves. Also, I was a little bit put-off by needing to sew on sleeves, or to deal with button holes and so on. Well, I found this pattern for the Immie Tee by Madder, and I fell in love with it. How could I not make this sweet little shirt for my little one! It has a beautiful lace panel up the front, and the short sleeves make it versatile, which is important with fickle high-desert weather.
The great things about this pattern is that it was a super-quick knit, being finished in a few short days, and I didn’t have to sew on the sleeves or deal with the fussiness of attaching buttons and knitting a half-dozen button holes. It came together so fast and with such ease that I hope to make many, many more.
Of course, I couldn’t do as the pattern called for exactly… I did lengthen the mid section, since we are a tall family, and our kids’ shirts usually end up being cropped tops. I didn’t have the yarn on hand that the pattern called for, but I did have a lot of Knit Pick’s Gloss on hand and it was close to the same gauging on the packaging. So, I just used a size 4 circular, and it worked our perfectly. I also used Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Stretchy Bind Off for the neck, and it shows the lace panel detail at the top as well. I love it. It’s ready for Avery to wear it the Autumn!

The Pantone 2014 color of the year is “Radiant Orchid,” which is actually a surprise for me, as I oddly had the desire to knit with purple-y colors recently, inspired by my blooming orchid. I’m not so much a “purple person,” if you will, but aren’t these gorgeous?
In celebration of this beautiful color, I am offering another pattern for purchase:
The “Kaleidoscope Cap” PDF Knitting Pattern, created using Knit Pick’s Gloss in “Velveteen,” which is a supple fingering weight in a vintage-y purple hue. This pattern can be purchased on Etsy here, or on Ravelry here.
The finished hat has a lovely, detailed eyelet, lace, and cabled design. The top of the cap is designed to come together symmetrically in a starburst design. Once knitted, this hat is a perfect three-season item.
This pattern is a perfect option for any knitter who knows some intermediate techniques of knitting, such as: k2tog, ssk, yo, a simple cable, and knitting in the round. Pattern includes written instructions, suggestions, and color photos. No prior experience needed of making hats since this pattern gives detailed, step-by-step instructions.
