New Babies looking for love in the Nursery

NEW PATTERN DESIGN AVAILABLE NOW ...
FIFI FLEUR Angel Top & Knickers Set

Can I please just remind everyone that any pattern you buy from me whether via pdf format or printed out is under copyright to me and CANNOT be resold - shared - gifted - or re-worked to claim as your own design BUT you may sell items knitted from my patterns as long as they are not mass-produced
I do work very hard and take many hours and weeks to get a design worked out for your enjoyment so to give you some idea of what's involved:
 

  • First I have the idea and sketch it

  • Then I have to decide on stitches/patterns to be used and yarn/color

  • I then work out stitch counts for different sizes (and maths is not my strong point so can take some time to get right!)

  • Then I knit my first version of it often having to rip it back several times to get the look I want and write (or rather scribble-erase-scribble) the pattern down as I knit

  • If I am not happy another set is made with the changes and another size is made to check stitch counts (up to 4 sets could be knitted during this stage to make sure its right!)

  • Once I AM happy I then have to type up all my scribbles to a pattern format

  • Then I have to do a photo shoot of the outfit

  • Then I place it out with test knitters and remain on hand for their queries and issues as they proof knit my design and check/knit all sizes

  • Then finally it may be ready for your use

  • AND SOMETIMES after all that another Designer may pip you at the post and release something similar before you and you have to shelf all that hard work and not release it after all - which has already happened to me!

If you have a cherished baby in your life whether its a newborn or a reborn baby then you are in the right place :)

Bit of Background:
I have knitted since I was 5 years old and started out like most creating for family and friends
During the 90's I contributed to the craze of 'picture knits' by weaving images of people's pets and hobbies
 in to sweaters and cardigans
Now in my late forties I find myself with Fibromyalgia and Osteo-Arthritis which gives me time to enjoy my passion
(and keep my sanity) to relive my 'cute and shuzzie' fix byknitting for other families beautiful precious and
cherished little gifts we call babies :)
And this has encouraged me into my latest passion (or INsanity - whichever whay you look at it LOL) at attempting to design my own patterns for you to enjoy and knit yourself :)

A baby makes love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bank balance smaller, home happier, clothes dirty, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for....and is like the beginning of ALL things including hopes and dreams.
