View Full Version : Grand Opening - YYMN and In Stock Items Available

06-08-2012, 07:47 AM
Grand Opening of The Royal Wardrobe offering knitted items for all of your princess, princes, and court jesters!
Hi! My name is Laura, and I am excited to offer YYMN (Your Yarn, My Needles) services and in-stock knitted items. I love to knit, and find it a fun and relaxing way for me to unwind and create beautiful and functional cloth diapering items!
I began knitting as a child under the tutelage of my grandmother. When expecting my first child, I learned to love knitting tiny garments for tiny little ones! As I grew into the cloth diapering world and discovered wool, I found the love for the beautiful, cozy, and functional woolies!

Please use the size charts, below, to approximate the size you need. Use your child’s hip measurement as the main figure to determine appropriate size for pricing. I am happy to customize the measurements in the tables to create the perfect fit for your child!

I am licensed to knit longies, shorties, and capris using the DaKine Longies pattern, found here: http://hyenacart.com/stores/DaKineKnits/
I can sell up to 35 skirties or soakers per year using the Juliette pattern. Shorties/longies are knit with a ribbed waist and seed stitch cuffs unless otherwise arranged. All woolies come with an i-cord or twisted cord for a drawstring, depending on yarn thickness and your preference.
I am also licensed to knit the Molly Bubble Romper and Ian Polo Romper.

Refunds will be given only if there is a true defect – don’t worry, this is very unlikely! All items will be knitted according to the measurements you provide so I am not responsible if the item does not fit your child. Pooling is not considered a defect and sometimes cannot be avoided completely. However, I can utilize several techniques to try to avoid pooling. If I run into pooling or significant striping while knitting your item, I will be sure to provide more frequent progress/WIP pictures. Because of the nature of hand-crafted items, small imperfections that do not affect function may exist and are not considered defects.

If you need help choosing yarn or are interested in having me purchase locally available yarn, let me know and I’ll be glad to help.

I also have available a stash of yarn, both inexpensive and Hyena Cart bases and dyers, and can knit MYMN for the additional cost of the yarn.
See post below for a listing of my current available colorways.
