What to Knit When You’re Expecting

It’s a must..

to check out the recently launched book, What to Knit When You’re Expecting. Not just because the author happens to be a friend, or her daughter (who sports the most adorable knitted creations made by her mama) is Leni’s bud, but more so because the 28 patterns featured in the book are all very practical. It’s a smart and lovely collection of booties, hats, sweaters, blankets, and more that are all relatively simple to create. Congrats Nikki!

introduced to mimiTENS™ a while back and feel in love the vibrant colors, elbow length cuff, the fact that they are eco-friendly, and well, just about everything! So, when we found out the founder, Anna-Maria Mountfort, has created smartypretty™, a line for women, we couldn’t have been happier.  Once again – great prints and solids, super warm, eco-friendly, and of course Mountfort uses fantastic materials like water repellent nylon, Thinsulate and Oeko-Tex certified bamboo/cotton fleece. Made in Canada and they’re the real deal.

mittens are designed with kids in mind. They have stretchy cuffs that reach the elbow, so they stay on a kids’ hand and they look super cool too. Not to mention the color and embroidery options make it hard to decide which ones to pick up first.   Anna-Maria Mountfort founded mimiTENS™ because she had a good idea and we agree.  mimiTENS™ are offered in two styles: soft and all weather.  Both are eco-friendly and use materials like water-repellent nylon, Thinsulate and bamboo/organic cotton fleece. Made in Canada by the best, clearly these guys are meant to be worn.
