MY NAME IS EDNA AND I'M A KNITAHOLIC



I started to design when my best friend had a baby girl 17yrs ago, but have just recently gotten serious about it. I have four patterns in a children's book coming out this year BOHO BABY by KAT COYLE and one design in KNITSIMPLE FALL 2007 and one in KNITSCENE FALL 2007. I own a shop in Silverlake, Calf and live only two blocks away with my two dogs-Lucy and Cerino.
I am either going to use two colors of Calmer or Calmer and Kid Silk to do a striped top. I usually start my design with a Yarn in mind and I love yarn & color combining. I think that is my thing. I like to look at the the style web sites and different on line shops to see what's going on in fashion (for regular people that is). I than do some sketches and when I decide what shape I like I do my swatch. Some times I do swatches in several needle sizes till I get the one I like. I don't usually do a garment that is too difficult and relay on the yarn and shape to make my finished piece shine. My BLOG name is Edna Hart Boutique

Hi Edna. Having been in your shop on several occasions, I've always appreciated your eye for color. The items you stock in your store also show a really great sense of style. I can't wait to see the progress of your pieces and am pleased there's another member of Team Calmer.

Yay! Welcome aboard, Edna. I'll look forward to getting to see your design in person at the shop. I had a blast on Sunday. Thanks, as always, for welcoming us in.

I love the one on the right, with the empire waist and ruching! So chic!
