My mother taught me to knit when I was just six years old, as part of a family tradition passed down through generations of women in my Dutch family. She, and my grandmother, originally knit out of necessity, and that has inspired many of my patterns. Several came about as a need I wanted met, from something as simple as a desire to keep my tea warm, to making a special baby blanket for a friend’s newborn child.
If you have questions about any of my patterns, please check in the Alexis Layton designs group forum. Someone may have already asked, and I will be happy to help you there.
