Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

My first ever pair of knits was from Dakota Fluff.. she is no longer on HC but I've been on DS for 4 yrs.

I also have a pair of SS Manpri's from Monica
and 3 pairs of longies from Tara @ Cherished Knits
and a cowl from Nickie @ Nickie Nuts Knits.

I knit for my kids like Melissa said since I can measure and see what I like and dislike
and move on. One of the reasons I learned to knit was to save $... HA that didn't happen with all the yarn I buy to knit & Dye

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

I've tried lots - and really had tons of favorites (Jennifer of Little Trunks, Lori of Tickle Bellies, Tricia, and I'm forgetting lots!!!) but hands down, I'm a Silly Stripe addict. I'm knitting now, Jilly's totally potty-training, but if I can get my hands on a custom slot with Monica, I'm getting them, even if they're the only pair of longies she has!

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

i knit most of Elliana's stuff myself but I have purchased from -

Abby of KnitterKnots - sock monkey longies (love them!)
Christi (abunchofus) for some scrumptious Cabled longies
Amber (amberbamberbabyfluff) for my oh-so-comfy mamajane slippers (I want more more more!)
Melissa (mhaddon) for my Bella mittens!
Heather (bodiejake on here, Blue Grass Baby) for a beautiful dress/tunic

And I love all the other WAHM's listed above for their gorgeous work too!! And I have to credit all the dyeing mamas too because without their talent, I couldnt make the ones for Elliana myself either!

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

OMG I definitely have more than one But I'll name a few of my favorites !

Lisa from Black Tree Knits (AMAAAZING! We lurrrrrrv you Lisa!)



Blossomgoat - oh yummy yumminess....she made us an awesome set recently


EviePants (Marilyn) - and even though I've never had anything actually knit by her - I am anxiously awaiting some new gorgeousness....wait that is a lie, we have a gorgeous scrappy skirty w/ legwarmers that she knit! We aren't the first owners though!


Teresa of MizKnits is amazing also! Luv her creative stitch patterns!



Lynne of Cabbages & Kings - another amazing knitter - love her! She knits amazing embellishments and cables! Here is a pretty old pic of miss Thia in her twisty trousers I actually need a pair or two more of these! This pair still fits though! A lot of stretch and give in these


And I know you said knit, but you can't forget about the gorgeousness of crochet....I lurrrvvvv Kari of Born Again Baby and Lyn of Get Hooked, both on HC The Chain Gang




we kind of have a bit of wool, so we have stuff from amazing knitters that I didn't mention! There are a lot of great knitters out there, you just need to find out what they are really good at knitting and have them knit you that!

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

I should also mention my wishlist of who I really WANT to have knit for me, but I have no idea WHAT I would have them make! One knitter/crocheter I have wanted to get a custom with for some time is Heather from Blue Grass Baby....I want like three pairs of crocheted longies and a knit outfit.......I just haven't worked it into my budget at the same time that she has customs open!

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

I can't say because I don't want to make all the other awesome knitters feel bad, lol! Here's my list of favs:

Mary of Mary's little knits
Kristi of Tree Frog Knits(she recently did a pair of shorties for me that I haven't raved on yet and she did the most AWESOME cuff)
Lynne of Cabbages and Kings-love my scrappies and side cable shorties from her! I also love how creative she gets with everything she stocks.
Mary Kate of Pkat pants

And ME! I love to knit for dd. I've made a lot of her stuff, but I'm a slow knitter and I love the awesome talent out there, so I will never stop having customs made.

Holly from handmadebymama is awesome.
So is Amy from Fly Baby Knits.
And Kira from Make Lemonade has dyed and knit some pretties for us.
Marilyn from Evie Pants is working on a vest for my older son right now. This is my first time working with her, but I saw a riding hood sweater yesterday that she knit and it was perfect and gorgeous.
Rosalie from Infiknit is wonderful as well and has a custom slot open right now. http://hyenacart.com/prod_details.php?id=95551&vid=2643
I second Holly! I love everything she has knit for J. Her duplicate stitch designs are just amazing!

and thanks for the compliment
