Julia’s Closet

I have been knitting for as long as I can remember myself….knitting from scraps and then unwinding the result (to explore what else could have been done with same yarn), knitting on a train, in front of a book, under the covers of my bed….

When I had my son I discovered that there are not too many quality knits for tots – actually none at all in acceptable price ranges that would please my esthetical sense as well as justify the price tag by quality…so I had to knit – first, cashmere blankets, then hats, then little sweaters with protection for neck out of softest materials I could find that would not irritate baby skin…that’s how I got back to it. My next discover was absense of complex patterns for kids knits and need to learn to imagine by myself….

I knit daily, I knit avidly and I pride myself on my perfectionism – from choosing the yarns of highest quality to paying attention to smallest details of execution…..

Now you can have a chance to win a mohair scarf.  Wohoo! Thanks Julia’s Closet:)

    I just wanted to stop by and say that I LOVE Julia’s work. My daughter is lucky to have a few of her knitted creations and we both love them. Julia makes excellent things, and I am very happy to see them discovered by others

    Gorgeous shop! The Golden Harvest dress is absolutely stunning. I love the texture and leafy design on the front. Serious high-end style for a little girl. The fact that it can be worn from size 2 to size 4 really helps (who doesn’t have a drawer full of unworn baby clothes because she grew out of them before she grew into them?).
