BFF Cardi

I didn’t set out to sell my knits because they are a labor of love and I wanted to make them for me. But after several friends asked me to make this cardigan here I am! My first cardigan design!

About my Knits:

Almost 20 years ago my Mom taught me to knit “because I needed it” I was going through some stuff and flew down to SC to see them. It was hot out but she taught me to knit a scarf. And she was right, I needed it. I needed the repetition, meditative at times and the comfort.
I soon became obsessed. Sold a ton of hats and scarves on Etsy, which then blossomed into sewing the bags. And for a long time I didn’t knit, I’m not sure why, I could think of a bunch of silly reasons I’m sure. Obviously I wish I kept it up.
