And baby makes 4!

And baby makes 4!

On April 17th, at 2 weeks overdue, our daughter Viviane was finally born (at 9lbs, 3oz!) Life is settling into its new normal, and we’re thrilled that our 2 yr old, Stella, is also in love with this sweet baby girl. I’ve given myself a […]

I am still pregnant, though my due date was 3 days ago. As I wait for my baby girl’s arrival, let’s talk about something else!

I was lucky enough to be a part of a really sweet little collection with 4 other designer/mama friends recently, and it’s finally available for purchase! From Mama, With Love is a baby and little kid collection featuring 15 patterns from me, Tanis Gray, Kate Gagnon Osborn, Margaux Hufnagel and Connie Chang Chinchio. It’s especially exciting because as mothers who make a living from knitting designs, we often end up with very little time to knit for our own children. This collection gave us an opportunity to design for our children, yet still write patterns.

The collection is only available as an ebook (a 50 page pdf) until 10/1/14, when the ebook option (which saves a great deal on the overall cost) will disappear and the patterns will only be available individually.

Above is just a preview of all the patterns in the collection. You can see them all and purchase the collection here.

The collection is going on an exciting blog tour, won’t you follow along?
