I am so happy to have a pattern included in the Knittin' Little Fall 2015 Collection!

Knittin' Little is a new website created by designer Andrea Sanchez. This awesome site is dedicated to providing knitters with patterns for children as well as ways to engage little ones in the love of fiber arts.

For the premier collection, I wanted to design something special for my little guy to wear... 

A proper, gentlemanly jacket for Fall appropriately named "Dapper".

Knit in squishy Garter st, Dapper is complete with all of the pleats, buttonbands, and pockets, of a traditional suit coat. The handsome notched collar and buttonbands are worked right into the jacket fronts for reduced finishing work at the end.

This pattern contains lots of little special details that are fun to create, 
and make for such a beautiful finished product.

Here is the pattern information for all of you interested in knitting up this jacket for the little one in your life:

Adorable New Greeting Cards

I'm kind of in love with this adorable set of 3 greeting cards illustrated by the 
talented Neesha Hudson.

You may remember Neesha as the illustrator of our Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf book published in 2012. 

I have greatly admired Neesha's amazing artwork for the past several years and her illustrations have appeared in all of our self-published knitting books to date including

I thought it would be fun to ask Neesha to take on the task of producing a small line of all-occasion blank cards featuring wool-producing animals. I love giving hand-made gifts whenever possible and I thought that these cards would make the perfect addition. :)

Cards measure 5 x 7" and are sold in a collection of 3 with accompanying envelopes for $12. 
Each card is blank inside to allow them to be used for all occasions.

They would also be so cute in a frame, don't you think?

Cards are available for purchase in my Etsy shop HERE or on nnkpress.com/gifts.
