Introducing April!

Hi! I’m April. I’ve been knitting since I was 7 (yikes.. that means almost 20 years) off and on. My first project was a “big bird yellow” blanket for my barbies. Lots of cross country skiing and engineering school kept me busy until recently with the birth of my kids. I’m not a person who likes to sit still, so I revived my craft while holding my sweet littles.

I’m at home with my kids this summer taking a break from my other life as an engineer. I’m licensed to sell two products: Vanilla baby diaper covers and the Dear Liza hat (special thanks to Annie for sharing this pattern with me). I’ll list both of these as finished objects as I have them available. I’m most excited about being able to knit the diaper covers “custom”. Here are the details.


I primarily knit on a Your Yarn My Needle (YYMY). You pay the cost for the cost of the yarn and I provide the labor. At this time, I strongly prefer you select Cascade 220 wool for your yarns to ensure quality. I’m hoping to expand to custom dyes in the future. If you have a special yarn you are interested in having me use, please let me know and we can discuss our options.

Knitting prices are as follows:

  Newborn Small Medium Large Extra Large
Vanilla Soakers $18 $20 $21 $23 $24 $28 $27 $33 $30 $35

Note rates are introductory for August and September 2011. In October, prices will rise to align with EviePants pricing by Nachomama and Mandy.

Wool items do not come lanolized. I am happy to provide instructions on how to lanolize. I’m happy to lanolize for you for an extra $5. Please note that this will delay your shipping time by several days while they dry.

I am also willing to ship products at your expense. I ship first class with a delivery confirmation. I love it when you let me know how you like things when they arrive.
