Knit Picks Playdate: A Baby KNit Collection
Playdate: A Baby Knits Collection

Designer: Quenna Lee I make no secret of how much I love, love, LOVE tiny babies and their tiny baby clothes. The look on my face and audible squeal I make whenever I see a new human in a grownup looking garment is also kind of a giveaway, too. Imagine my delight when I learned we were planning a ...

Welcome to the Mother’s Day Chill Zone!

Mother’s day can mean different things depending on you and your family’s traditions. For some it means gathering with family and celebrating together; others – a quiet day in. But for every Mother on Mother’s day, there’s one thing that I think should always come with the territory: some well-deserved time in the chill zone. Being a parent so often requires you to put aside your own needs to prioritize those of your family, but Mother’s day is about appreciating all ...

Create Your Own Milestones and Memories Projects

Growing up, my beloved grandmother always knit or crocheted at least two afghans for her grandkids. One was given to us right after we were born (mine was a Raggedy Ann & Andy blanket), the other was given when we were 18 and was a series of squares, some plain, some with our favorite colors, some with pictures of things we loved (cats and books features heavily on mine - not much has changed). With that in mind, we have put together a collection with a similar theme - the Milestones and Memories collection.

Baby Knits!

Our new Knits for Everybody collection couldn't have come at a better time! My sister is about to have a baby in November which means that I immediately threw out my old queue of knitting projects and cast on for every baby project I could think of. Now, it's been a long time since I've been around a baby and it's hard to remember how absolutely teeny tiny they are when they're brand new. Instead of winging it and just guesstimating the size of a newborn baby, I turned to Knits for Everybody to help me find just the right size!

Staff Projects – Bunny Knits!

Spring is almost over - can you believe it? Only about a month to go until summer, and I don't know if I'm ready quite yet. The weather in the Northwest has been everything from 50 to 90 degrees already, giving us a sample of what looks to be the hot summer ahead. So to keep spring around for just a bit longer (at least in my mind, and on my needles) I made some sweater for my daughters. Want to see?
