Our search soon found us in StitchKnit's Etsy shop looking at her beautiful hand-knit sweaters. My daughter loved the sweaters she saw there, but she wanted it in a different color. I decided to send a message to Sue, the owner and designer behind StitchKnit to see if a custom order was possible. I was quite delighted at the prompt and very friendly response I received back indicating that she would be more than happy to accommodate my request! Needless to say, my daughter was over the moon about her new sweater and quite anxious to receive it!
When I received the sweater in the mail, both my daughter and I just sat for a moment feeling it! It was made from the softest of yarns in a beautiful midnight blue color. It also had a really fun fuzzy collar and a satin ribbon closure. Being a knitter myself, I then began to look a little closer at it and I was very pleased with the craftsmanship of the item! I know exactly how much work goes into a knitted item of clothing whether it is for a doll or an adult and Sue had certainly spent her time making sure the item was precisely knitted.
My daughter immediately ran to get her doll and we tried it on. It fit the doll perfectly! The next time we had a playdate with some of her friends, that sweater was the first thing she showed them as she is quite proud of it! Her doll was the fashionable hit of the party and I'm almost inspired enough to make my daughter a matching sweater as I think they would make quite the pair together!
Sue is great to work with and will have your custom sweater made to order within 7 days! Also an important thing to note, all of the sweaters that Sue makes are machine-washable which is very important, as most mothers know!
I have rarely seen an Etsy shop with such variety and talent all in one place. You truly need to visit StitchKnit's shop to see all of the wonderful handmade treasures that she has to offer. If you are looking for a handmade item, the chances are that she either has it of can make it for you and I can assure you that it will be of the best quality!
