As a child, I remember sitting and watching morning cartoons — you know, the classic ones with the infamous cat and mouse — and out of the corner of my eye, my grandma would sit and knit away. I remember being captivated by the colorful wool peeking out of the project bag she took everywhere.
Today, of course, we rarely think of grandma when we think of knitting. Knitting has enjoyed a style revival, and everyone from young hipsters to fashionable moms to primary school children are picking up a set of needles. From the runway to the home, knit goods are everywhere.
At Babiekins, we love the revived art of knitting, especially as it combines with the surge in artisan goods and DIY. We can’t get enough of being able to make our own blankets, sweaters, and accessories. instead of relying on someone elses’s style preferences.
We especially love the company ‘we are knitters‘ — they sell beautiful knitting, crochet and petit point kits. Kits include a pair of knitting needles, enough skeins for the entire project, the pattern, a WAK label and a tapestry needle to finish your project.
Our top Babiekins picks are the Martina Cardigan kit, THIS mini Catori Kimono (I mean!!!) kit and the Cub Scarf is darling. These would make GREAT gifts for the special crafter in your life — or yes, for you, if you want to get your craft on. Treat yo’self!
