It’s day three of giveaway week, and today I’d like to introduce you to the lovely Veronica from A Little Sweater Shop in Canada. Veronica creates a range of super sweet and supremely snuggly hand knitted goodies for kids, and has just released her winter collection. You can read our review below, and enter today’s giveaway for your chance to win a custom knitted children’s sweater!
In review today we have a gorgeous hand knitted sweater coat from A Little Sweater Shop, made from a lush wool, nylon, and acrylic blend, with a natural/grey base and dusty blue contrasting hood and sleeves. This sweater is the kind of garment that you just want to wrap around you in winter as you snuggle up with your loved ones (and nurse a cup of hot cocoa).
There’s much to adore about this sweater, starting with the chunky knit and eclectic buttons, which give this garment a vintage appeal and a groovy texture. I love the finishing touches, such as the custom printed wooden button; and the quality of this sweater is so superb, it’s likely to stay in your family for generations.
The verdict… Modern knitting meets vintage charm!
Veronica loves to knit, plain and simple. Her kids closets are close to bursting point due to all that sweater squish! She started her little sweater label so that she could share her love of knitting with the world, and we’re so pleased that she did!
Veronica is a mum to four little poppets, 2 girls & 2 boys ages 2, 5, 7, and 10. She crafts each and every sweater by hand in her home studio, using exquisite yarns and buttons, with most items available for custom order (and a few OOAK pieces too).
Veronica likes to create simple designs that can be worn with anything, and mostly work with simple colours. However, she tells us that she’s a sucker for crazy patterns… and has a little bit of an obsession with wool! She draws her inspiration from a whole range of different things, including her kids, the outdoors, and the textures of a fabric.
Here’s three fun facts about Veronica (in her own words):
- I drink coffee (a lot of coffee).
- I love shoes and magazines make me very happy.
- Knitting is my passion.
You can purchase all the above children’s knits from A Little Sweater Shop online, or email Veronica (via her website) to request a custom order.
