Hand Knit Sweaters, Part 2

After putting these new sweaters on the blog yesterday our phone was ringing off the hook about them. We have a few answers to some of your questions. She will be bringing yarn swatches if you are interested in changing the colors on the sweater or the sweater color itself. She can also make the sweaters bigger, we just have a few samples to help gage your child's size. Our model, Wallace, is wearing a size 4 and he is 2 years old...just to give you an idea of how they run. The yarn is acrylic but cotton is also an option with a small increase in the price. Washing instructions: By hand in the sink with Woolite. Squeeze the water out and roll in a towel. Lay flat on the dryer and when the heat rises it will help it to dry. Please call us with questions or if you want to place an order!

Hand-Knit Sweaters

This week, the sweetest little lady with a charming British accent stepped into the store. With her, she brought in the most precious hand-knitted sweaters, caps and blankets. As we went through the stacks of tightly knitted yarn, she told the stories of each sweater. All of the sweaters have buttons on one shoulder so they will easily fit over your child's head. Most are inspired from the well known stories of Beatrix Potter. All are just so cozy and would look great with our new Fall lines. Please come in or call us if you are interested. We know these will go fast!

***Keep your eyes on Eloise and Henry because she will be back with fun animal caps to keep your little one's heads warm this upcoming Winter season!

Here are just a few of the sweaters that she left us...if you are interested in other designs just call or come by.

She is also going to do this in blue and white for us!

This looks so cute with pink cords!

We LOVE this squirrel!

Anavini girl 2 piece white long sleeve blouse with blue cotton bloomers. The top has yellow ric rac around the collar and white ruffle around the sleeves and bottom of the top. The precious smocking is yellow ducks swimming. This outfit coordinates with the outfit below that we already received. These would be precious on boy/girl twins!!! Both of these outfits come in 12mo. - 24mo.
This is also Anavini for the "big boys". It is a 2 piece set with a white long sleeve shirt with sports smocking across the middle and red cordurory pants. These pants would also be great to mix and match with something for the holidays. Sizes 4 - 6X.

IMP, the company that we used to get all of our cordurory pants and overalls from has unfortunately gone out of business. We were able to still get some overalls and pants before they closed their doors so call us for size and color availability. We have compensated with overalls and pants from other companies such as Little English and Bella Bliss so be on the look out!


We almost fell out of our chair when we opened up these precious little rag doll outfits!!! They are blue/white gingham and the 2 piece outfit has red cord. pants. The romper is for the month sizes 12mo - 24mo, the dress comes in 2T - 4T, and the pants outfit comes in sizes 4 - 6X. These would be perfect for you "big" girl and "little" girl to coordinate. These are SO cute they are flying out of the box. Call today if you are interested!
