I have been knitting children's clothing, toys, and diapering items for some time now. I sell my products through auction, custom order, and in upscale childresn's boutiques in New York City. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than passing happy moms and happy babies on the street wearing my clothing or clutching one of my soft toys!

I hand knit Curly Purly soft toys such as bears, bunnies and dolls as well as active toys such as bean bags using the finest materials and unique patterns which I developed myself after loads of experimentation. Every item is unique, and your role play toys will come to you tagged and named. Of course you can rename your friends whatever you'd like to name them, but they take on a special "personality" when I'm sculpting them, and we become friends.

Diaper soakers, pants, and shorts are all hand knit using soft and durable yarns using a unique pattern that I created over years of experimentation. All diapering items feature the original pleated waistband. This waistband was specially designed by me to hold the soaker in place by clinging to your baby's hips, thus aleviating the need for a drawstring.
Soakers feature a very snug fit and part side/part front opening legs that give a low riding ultra trim fit. These soakers work wonderfully - even under tights and leggings! Soakers can be finished with a rolled or ribbed cuff. I generally recommend ribbed cuffs for infants and for soakers that are intended for use under clothing.
Pants and shorts feature extra wiggle room in the rear and a slight gusset at the crotch to allow for freedom of movement. Legs can be baggy or trim, and cuffs can be finished in a variety of ways.
C L O T H I N G
From time to time I make clothing or other items available. This really depends what strikes my fancy at any given moment. I prefer to knit for children using high-quality natural fibers in free-fitting comfortable and useful styles.

Wool items should be hand washed in wool wash or mild shampoo. I use Monkey Sudz wool so when you get a lovely smelling package, you know where to look. Squeeze (do not wring), reshape, and dry flat.

Non-auction tems may be returned by the original purchaser within 14 days in unwashed, unworn, unused condition. You may be offered a refund or a replacement. Custom orders cancelled after work has begun are subject to a loss of deposit.
