Knits U Love

Top models do it, children do it, grannies do it, and men used to do it before women took over. Knitting is making a comeback! I am so pleased. After furtively knitting and designing knitwear for years, now it’s time to wave the woolly flag and share some of my creations 🙂

**NEWS!**

I’ve put together ten of the best patterns from the Ekokid collection (below) in one download!
