Giveaway & Review: From Mama, With Love
Have you heard of this new gem of a pattern book? It's called From Moma, With Love. It's a beautiful assembly of knitting patterns by 5 extremely talented designers – and mamas: Connie Chang Chinchio, Tanis Gray, Margaux Hufnagel, Melissa La Barre and Kate Gagnon Osborn. So, what do I love about this book? There's quite a few things actually, but let's start with the most important – the patterns. There's a really nice variety of sweaters, vests, hats and blankies and how about that awesome boppy cover? Talk about an awesome shower gift idea for a new mom! Patterns (Left to Right, Top to Bottom): Petunia's Blanket, Ronan Pullover, Seed Stitch Boppy, Kearney Hat, Kyle Vest, Lulu Vest, Sid Scrappy Hat, Velvet Hoodie, Viviane Cardigan, Debonair Hat, Ferris Vest, Isadora Lopapeysa, Antonia Blanket, Bluebell Pullover, Callum Vest I also really love how personal this book feels, you can certainly tell it was a labor of love by all 5 authors. One of my favorite things about it are the cute little nuggets of parenting advice along with the patterns. For example: From Tanis Gray: Q: "What's the best parenting advice you've ever received?" A: "Not every day wil be rosy, but take each day as it comes, learning from both their and your mistakes and try again tomorrow...." Well said, Tanis!
