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!

There are..

Osei-Duro

Osei-Duro

so many things at Osei-Duro that caught my eye. The collection is filled with stunning prints and silhouettes. The duo that created this brand, Maryanne Mathias and Molly Keogh, work with women in West Africa to make beautiful clothing and accessories. Osei-Duro is not only helping to create opportunities for these women, but at the same time is delivering socially responsible and sustainable garments. Can’t wait to see what’s next from this admirable company.
