Well hello there! My name is Ali, and I love to knit, crochet, bake and all kinds of house-wifey things. I’ve got a great husband named Paul, and a beautiful baby boy named Sam who was born in September of 2011. This blog is full of the things I make, the stuff I bake, the people I love and inspiration.
A little about The Knittybutton: My roommate taught me how to knit the most basic of stitches my sophomore year of college (05), and another good friend taught me how to crochet a granny square that same year. I didn’t really learn much more until late 2008, when I really started getting into knitting. Mostly I like to knit little animals, but hats are at the top of that list, too! I love making baby clothes, which is good, because I’m invited to a lot of baby showers these days. I hail from the Tacoma region of the great state of Washington, but now live in Northern Idaho while my husband finishes up school. So while he studies, I knit!
I also sell my knitted things, pretty much anything you see here on the blog I can knit for you. Prices vary depending upon the item, the type of yarn you would like, etc, but I’d love to hear from you and get some ideas about what I can make for you, stuffed animals, clothing, hats, scarves, mittens, baby toys, pillows, blankets, you name it – I can (most likely!) make it! Feel free to leave me a comment or email me for specific rates or projects!
If you’ve used any of my patterns, please let me know so that I can see! I always love seeing what people have made from my patterns!
I’d love to hear from you, so feel free to leave me a comment or drop me a line at: Lexikaye@gmail.com, or friend me on Ravelry!
